Here at Pelham, we are constantly striving to keep our entertainment fresh and original. These guys are what we believe to be the new twist on the cover band scene. With a super versatile set list, the emphasis is on modern dance music with a really full and energetic edge that’ll keep people dancing. While they still do a few throw back classics you might expect to here from any cover band performance, don’t be surprised to hear some new top40 chart toppers that just hit the radio waves that day. These guys are cutting edge and you’re going to love their sound!
The Blue Light Bandits are a four piece groove band from New England serving a smooth combination of rock, pop, and R&B. BLB recently won the “Best Up & Coming Act” at the 2016 Worcester Music Awards and shared the stage with New Politics on their latest college tour. BLB was also nominated for “New Act of the Year” for the 2015 New England Music Award’s, after winning the Last Band Standing Competition for Rhode Island in 2015. Their music has been featured on CMJ, Hot Indie News, and aired on WXRV, Boston’s Independent Radio.
The foursome came together in May of 2015 and embarked on a series of small tours that summer. The most notable shows included performances at Carolyn’s Sakonnet Vineyard’s Alex & Ani Summer Music Series, a sold out show at Westport Rivers Winery’s Sunset Music Series, and a headline performance at the Black Potatoe Music Festival in Clinton, NJ.
Thanks to Converse RubberTracks, Blue Light Bandits was given complimentary studio time at Q Division Studios in Somerville, MA and released their first single in February of 2016 as a result of the project. BLB is gearing up for another busy summer of regional touring, along with the completion of their first full length LP.
