Blue Light Bandits is 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, 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. BLB is gearing up for another busy summer of regional touring, festivals, and the completion of their first full length album.
