5. La Bodega at Palmetto Bluff
La Bodega is an American funk band formed on Hilton Head Island, SC, in 2011. The group consists of Guy Smiley (vocals) and Todd T. (guitar).

Averaging over 150 live shows per year, they eventually emerged as one of the more popular acts in the area. The band’s raw funk, soul, reggae, blues, & hip-hop sound draws heavily from their old school influences, including Prince, Bill Withers, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, & Run-D.M.C.
