-Boondock Squad·Friday, March 1, 2019
The word "boondocks" comes from the Tagalog "bundók", which means mountains. It was adopted into American English when invaders clashed with guerrilla fighters in the mountains of Luzon during the Philippine-American war. The invaders construed the boondocks or the “boonies" to mean wilderness – the rural, outlying or savage places.
Boondock Squad plays hip-hop and rock music for the people of the boondocks – the masses of outliers whose truths have been waiting to be heard.

-Funky grooves, psychedelic sounds, and some instruments you've never seen before. The Blind Bandits are a Roots-Rock band that combine blues, folk, funk, jazz, and even a little classical music with an analog sound straight out of the 60's.

The Blind Bandits got their start after Stefan Cwik, who had just returned to San Francisco after spending two years completing his masters degree at Julliard, and Charles Barrett, who had also just completed a masters degree from SF State in Conducting, decided to spend a weekend at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. Even though they had spent the majority of their adult lives shoulder deep in the music of Classical Masters such as Bach, Stravinsky, San Francisco's own David Conte, they were struck by inspiration during an earth shattering Wood Brothers set. As they left the park groundwork was already being laid for what would eventually become The Blind Bandits.
They hung up their tuxedos, put on a pair of jeans, and dove headfirst into the world of rock and roll. After spending some time dusting the dirt of guitars, learning a couple new instruments, and learning the in's and out's of writing songs the time had come to form the band.
They brought in Scott Lindorfer on the Bass and Dan Evans on the Drums and played their debut gig at the Hotel Utah before quickly heading to the studio to record their first EP.
