The Initials were a Valdosta-based band from 1987-1988. They performed mainly on the college fraternity party circuit in the Southeast as well as in Valdosta clubs such as the American Legion on Williams Street, Someplace Else, Our Place (formerly the Pizza Villa on Ashley Street), as well as The Sidebar on St. Simon's island, with the occasional trek to the southern music mecca of Athens, Ga. to perform at the Rockfish Palace.
