Jason, the co-owner and band leader of 12 South, received a degree in Commercial Music from Belmont University in 2002 and went on to produce music for several years post college. He performed with multiple bands during the same time period from a Beatles tribute band to a Country group and several Dance bands. In 2013, he decided he wanted to create a unique and high-energy Dance band dedicated to delivering performances that guests would remember for years to come. He combined his love of music, production, and theater into the vision for 12 South. He currently performs with the band throughout the Country.
Anna, the co-owner, manager, and choreographer for 12 South, also received a degree from Belmont University but in Music Business. She planned to become an artist manager but found ballroom dancing while in College and after graduation became a full-time competitive ballroom and latin dancer. In 2008, she won the United States National Professional Rising Star Rhythm Championship and in 2012 became the World Professional Rhythm Showdance champion. After retiring from competitive dancing, Jason and Anna began working together to create an exciting show full of top 40 hits and fun choreography that would appeal to a wide audience!
The band has taken off quickly over the past several years, and due to demand, now has two smaller groups, 8 South and 6South, that offer the same great show on a slightly smaller scale. The company also has a country/rock group called Nash County Band that features fiddle and a male and female lead singer!
