Bandwich is a four course meal from central Maine focused on pushing the boundaries of musical improvisation, with a taste of progressive rock, jazz/fusion, funk, blues, R&B/Soul and more. While mixing tight composition with organic, ever-flowing improvisation, the group provides a high energy live performance every single serving. In just over a years time, they have grilled up a vast catalog of original music, showcasing it all over the state of Maine. If glorious peaks and valleys, deep improvisational space journeys, futuristic funk grooves and GMO-free interplay is on your radar, Bandwich just might the meal your looking for. Meet the Band---> You may have guessed by the name that Bandwich is no vegan entree. Behind the beef filled bass lines of Jason Barnes, the condiment filled cosmic keyboard work of Darrell Briggs, relish-ing rhythm of Riley Kern and the garlic seasoned guitar glory of Keith Briggs, Bandwich creates a quadruple patty dance party like no other.
