What’s the Good Word?
The BKs have been toiling hard at Bang-A-Song Studios this summer, working with good friend and co-captain of the kool kids, Tony Goddess. From what can be heard through the carpeted walls, they are amassing quite a collection of amazing mixes. The band gets major points for the songs but credit the good noise to friend and guest producer, Mr. Dave Mattacks. They’ve also had visits from Russ Lawton (who can be heard most of the year with a little music group you may be familiar with, the Trey Anastasio Band) and Nelson Bragg (on a short break between world travels with the Brian Wilson band). The Bandit Kings look forward to sharing the fruits of this labor soon, and are so happy to have such great inspiration from these fantastic musicians and all of you (awwww).

The Bandit Kings are:
Renee Dupuis on lead vocals and keys, Ann Marie, also on lead vocals, Dennis Monagle on drums, Joe Cardoza on bass, and Dan King on lead guitar. The Bandit Kings’ play original tunes written by the band members and hot b-sides by classic artists for longer shows. They have found bare-bones musical chemistry, including the rich meld of vocalists Ann Marie and Dupuis, who “both have voices that bring us back to the dawn of country rock, whisky soaked and raspy in just the right places while never crossing into the overpowering. The song is a rare treat that could have been tossed aside as a boring anachronism in less capable hands.” -Boston Band Crush
