Welcome | 8 Seconds Band

8 Seconds is one of the area’s most energetic and powerful country bands. The band consistently draws large crowds as they are known for their strong vocals, tight harmonies, and their unique musical style and sound. Performing since 2001, 8 Seconds has earned numerous opening spots for national recording artists such as Dierks Bentley, Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Randy Houser, Justin Moore, Eric Paslay, Billy Currington to name a few.

8 Seconds always delivers with a show that people want and expect to see and covers a good mix of both classic country songs and current top 40 country hits. People often say “you may not like country music, but you will love 8 Seconds!”  Attend an 8 Seconds show, and it is immediately apparent that each of the band members loves music and enjoys playing in front of a crowd. It’s equally as obvious that the crowd loves being there to take it all in and dance the night away! 8 Seconds members include, Mike Flack on lead vocals, John Fokken on lead guitar and vocals, Eric Douglas on drums, Jimmy Lee on bass and vocals, and Jen Zoller on vocals.
