Communion Artist Spotlight: Rosco Bandana

Back in 2010, when Gulfport, Mississippi based band Rosco Bandana first formed, this group of gifted vocalists and insanely talented instrumentalists was probably unaware of what would be in store for them after just a year of playing music together.  In 2011, they entered the Hard Rock Calling contest, where more than 12,000 other hopeful bands were also vying to be the first group signed to Hard Rock Records.  After much hard work sweating it out and making a name for themselves on little Mississippi stages, Rosco Bandana won the contest and landed their first deal.

It was really difficult to find a comparison for this seven-piece group. Once you think you have their sound figured out, they’ll jump in with some major sevenths or throw out an early Dylan-esque sound, all while still maintaining their layered blend of folk, Americana, and rock with southern flair.  As a lover of a good mandolin and powerful female vocalists, Rosco Bandana has got me absolutely hooked.  Their debut album Time to Begin showcases all the things I feel a good indie folk album should: harmonic vocals, story telling, just the right amount mandolin and banjo, and the ability to throw in some bluesy guitar without making anyone question anything.

To get you both in the Christmas and Communion Show spirit, go ahead and buy your ticket while you listen to Rosco Bandana’s latest offering: a Hard Rock Records produced cover of Winter Wonderland.
