Word of South


Meet 911, a Tallahassee based band that has established itself as one of North Florida’s most unique music groups, performing original music, mostly written by award winning singer-songwriter Drew Tillman, then “evolved” into the unique songs performed as only 911 can. 911 released 2 albums, a live album, “Live at Bullwinkle’s” recorded and engineered by Fred Chester and a studio album recorded and engineered by Perry Nelson, produced by 911 and John Kurzweg. Besides the original music and recordings, 911 also performs unique renditions of songs by classic rock and folk icons such as Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, John Hyatt, John Prine, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, and countless others.

911 is simple: Drew Tillman, acoustic guitar and vocals; Perry Nelson, drums and vocals; Richard Tengstedt, bass; and Steve Taff, electric guitar. No digital keyboards, no digital drums, no autotuning or other 21st-century technology. So, all you get is a raw, powerful rock band sound that is familiar but fresh.

Listen and enjoy!
