The Blue Ridge Bandits is a band we formed in the fall of 2015 in Clemson, South Carolina. At the time, all four original members attended Clemson University and we wanted to play music that embodied the college students that we were performing for, a blend of all kinds of good time music with a country flair. The original members of the band were Tommy Albreight (backup singer, lead/rhythm guitar), Jay Hart (Bassist), Crawford Phillips (Drummer), and Brennan Burns (lead singer, rhythm/lead guitarist). Since then Tommy and Jay have graduated and stepping in to slap the bass will be Johnny Schwerer. BRB plays all over the Clemson area and since the start of the band have played across the area for just about any venue or event that would have music. They have also been hired by the University itself to play for events that Clemson has held. Events such as The Welcome Back Festival 2016 as well as Tigerama and Cocky's Funeral, playing for our 2017 National Champion football team The Tigers. The Bandits will start playing shows again in August of 2017 as the school year starts to pick up so keep look out on the schedule to find out dates at your closest venue to check them out.
