And if none of that impresses you, Scott is a rock star in his own mind when his cover band, Five South jams out in sports bars and watering holes in greater South Orange County regularly. The guy plays a mean bass and can sing well too (especially if you’ve had a few). Check them out at www.facebook.com/fivesouth.
