Southern Star Bluegrass


Southern Star Bluegrass
L >R:  Larry "Bunky" Jackson - Rick Hinson - Steve Durrwachter - Royce Burt


After 33 years of performing around Florida and the Southeast United States we, the members of Southern Star Bluegrass, have decided to disband. We want you all to know how sincerely thankful we are to have had the opportunity to entertain people for the past 33 years.

Over the years we have made many new friends from all around the United States and Europe. Many of them come back year after year to attend our shows. We will always hold dear those relationships that were formed and those of the many fans that have followed our development for all of these years.

Larry Jackson, the guitar player and lead singer for Southern Star will be reforming a Bluegrass Band or will be playing in the near future with another band. As you are aware, he has been the backbone of the Southern Star sound for more than 20 years.

God Bless

The Grand Ole Opry

On Friday, October 13, 1995, Southern Star Bluegrass had the honor and privilege to participate in the 70th Anniversary Bluegrass Spectacular at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee.

Following their performance on the Bluegrass Spectacular, Southern Star was asked to stay and perform at the Friday night Opry show which is broadcast over the Nationally syndicated WSM radio network.

Just think of how far this music has come in terms of worldwide acceptance since Mr. Bill Monroe named his band what was to become a branch of country music called "Blue Grass".
