Come On Go With Us

The other day, I was listening to Mississippi five-piece band Come On Go With Us, doing some research on the members of the group when it hit me. "Yup," I thought to myself, "that makes sense." Why? Well, Come On Go With us sound exactly like what you'd expect them to sound like, given their bio. Made up of five guys who come from various parts of the South, COGWU sounds exactly like what five guys who come from various parts of the South should sound like. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing. The group creates a nice mixture of country and rock with some fiddles, banjo, and harmonies thrown in for good measure. The band was formed in 2008 in Columbus, Mississippi, by lead vocalists Jacob Simpson and Chase McGill and was later filled out with members Dustin Hendrick, Justin McKenzie, and Christopher Hunt. A short time later, the group released its self-titled album on the indie label Severe Records LLC. Come On Go With Us has been touring extensively since releasing their debut album last year and has developed a reputation for putting on a highly enjoyable live show.
