Austin Park is a Modern Rock/Country band from Jacksonville, FL, formed by singer/ songwriter Jeff Congo and drummer Tim Crawford. Whether performing at festivals, clubs, or as direct support for a major act, the audience can expect a high energy, interactive and memorable experience!
Since forming in 2005, the band has performed over 1,000 shows, performing in venues like Tootsies Word Famous Orchid Lounge in Nashville, TN, The Jacksonville Landing in Jacksonville, FL, and GTMO - Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and has provided direct support for a list of national recording artists.
A mid-summer trip performing a showcase at the World Famous Tootsies Orchid Lounge in Nashville, TN proved a worthwhile trip. Shortly after, the band began working with many well-known Nashville producers Scott Fairclough (Lifehouse), Sal Oliveri (P!nk, Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban), Mills Logan (Luke Bryan, Cole Swindell, Toby Keith), on their debut CD. Their lead-off song titled, “Life in Dixie” (Congo, Faircloth), gained airplay on Georgia’s Z94.5 FM. Their follow up singles, “12 Ticks to Midnight,” "Invisible," and "A Girl Walks In," have all gained airplay on country radio stations around the southeast.
The band is currently spending their time between Jacksonville and Nashville writing and recording new music!
