My favorite new band: the Bakersfield Breakers


No, they're not from California. The Bakersfield Breakers are a three-piece instrumental group from New York City that formed in 2010. The band consists of good old guitar, bass, and drums and its mission is to reawaken the classic guitar-driven sound of 1950’s Bakersfield (CA) and the driving tunes of 1960’s surf rock. In addition to its large catalog of covers, the group also perform originals that fit perfectly with the vintage vibe and gigs can last anywhere from forty-five minutes to three hours. Currently gigging around the northeast, have a listen to their new album (In The Studio With...), buy a copy, and catch them live if you can!
