So Who Is Tennessee Borderline??
Tennessee Borderline entertains crowds with a variety of modern and classic country, southern and classic rock with a splash of some 80’s and today’s pop hits. Although the name "sounds" country, they definitely cater to a wide variety of music. The band is a family tradition for drummer, James Mangis, whose father originated it in the late 80’s and after his death, Mangis continued the music. Through lots of practice, determination and paying their dues along the way, Tennessee Borderline has become one of the hottest bands to hit the central Illinois area. This band’s enthusiasm is infectious as it spreads into the audience. They have as much fun on-stage as their crowds do off-stage. Fans can find them throughout all of central Illinois playing street festivals, fairs, special events, corporate parties and popular local nightlife venues.
