The Q-Tip Bandits / Them Fantasies
Since their inception in early 2018, the Q-Tip Bandits have emerged on the music scene in Boston, Massachusetts, as an energetic and vibrant act. Boasting a full-bodied, sweetly flowing sound backed by the raw energy of rock and the colors of R&B and funk, they can make you sway and swoon. Claire Davis and Jacob Harelick hold down the grooves while Leo Son brings smooth, soul-inspired riffs and moving lyrics to the front of the stage. The band energizes big rooms and enraptures intimate venues.
Them Fantasies is a Boston-based indie/alt rock trio formed in 2017. Founding members Dominic Cannarella and Eric McCoy met at Berklee College of Music and began to blend their differing musical backgrounds with Steven Velasquez. The varying influences of the members of the band give Them Fantasies a unique indie/alternative vibe with a touch of progressive elements. After the release of their first video for their single “…Until the End”, they headed to Valencia, Spain, for four months through Una Vez Records. While in Valencia, they recorded their debut EP, the Ghosted, which was released shortly after their return to the United States. While abroad, they opened for two-time Grammy nominee Patrice Rushen, played CDBaby’s first European Conference, and collaborated with Indian singer Dhaval Kothari. Upon their return to the U.S., the band shipped out to the Midwest for a tour of America’s heartland in support of their recently released EP.
