“Detroit natives, The Social Bandits, are toying with live music platforms… and it’s working”
— WXOU Radio
The Social Bandits are a rock band infused with funk, reggae, and blues from Detroit, Michigan. Having played over one hundred shows together, the band blends genres in their original music while mixing tasteful covers into their high energy live performance. Their debut album captures the essence of their vast musical tastes as well as their knack for improvisation and dynamic songwriting. The band has played a wide variety of shows including banging college house parties, four hour bar gigs, Detroit dives, esteemed clubs and halls throughout Michigan, and has opened for acts such and Passafire and Lil Dicky. With new music on the way, the guys hope to take this show on the road in the coming year and beyond.
