Kansas City blues roots band with a nod to the strong, whiskey-drinking women and the smokey, smooth playing men that built the blues.
"I told Russ that I wanted us to create a true ensemble group that would borrow from each of our backgrounds, blend styles, and tell powerful stories of love, loss, and living this crazy, unexpected, and ultimately beautiful life. Maybe not exactly those words, but pretty damn close! And I am so thankful for this group and the opportunity to do just that.
Who are the Bandoliers? Actually first, WHAT is a bandolier? (I had to google it!)
A bandolier is a cross body strap that holds ammunition (and coincidentally, harmonicas). I thought it was a good representation of something that holds the ability to either cause disruption and chaos (ammo) or create beauty and harmony (musical instrument). While blues songs can be filled with such misery and heartache, they are also relentlessly hopeful and embrace both chaos and harmony. And that’s where the magic lies.
So, we hope you come out to a show, find meaning and joy in what we do, book us for a gig, and share this journey with us.”
