Cary Live: Banditos


Originally from Birmingham, AL, Banditos is a group of six 20-somethings, nowadays operating out of Nashville, close to, and simultaneously very far away from, the gleaming towers and industry hustle of Lower Broad and Music Row.

With the rugged power of a flashy Super Chief locomotive, the Banditos' self-titled debut album bodaciously appropriates elements of '60's blues-fused acid rock, ZZ Top's jangly boggie, garage punk scuzz a la Burger Records, the Drive-By Trucker' yawp, the populist choogle of CCR, Slim Harop's hop shake baby groove, the ebullient folk of electric Dylan, gut bucket Fat Possum hill country mojo and the George Satellites. From backwoods bluegrass to slinky nods to Muscle Shoals soul and unexpected bits of doo-wop sweetness, the Banditos recall many, but sound like no one but themselves.
