In One Word: Refreshing
Blaire Alise and the Bombshells is a rockabilly outfit hailing from Detroit, MI. Drawing inspiration from the rockabilly sounds of the 50’s, this band produces something refreshing while still paying homage to the styles of the past. They use both chunky chord progression and doo-wop sounds quintessential to the genre.
Blaire Alise holds a bright and memorable stage presence, with powerful vocal control and a gritty, distorted guitar sound. This was most prevalent in songs such as “Keep Your Hands Off My Man”, a fun and wildly catchy tune.
Kicking off a tour through the U.S., Blaire Alise and the Bombshells are a band to keep your eye on – danceable tunes, great energy and a fun style of music provides the trifecta. Their full length album is now available on Bandcamp.
