the beach bats

showcase:
FRI mar 1, 9PM

The Beach Bats were formed sometime in the summer of 2016 by Chelsea White and Tony Doni in Hamilton, Ontario. Both had performed together previously in Hamilton psych-rock outfit Pluto Adrift and decided to use a hiatus to explore sounds farther afield. Originally influenced by rockabilly and punk a la The Cramps and Reverend Horton Heat, the Bats began to branch into jazz, country, industrial and have returned often to their grungy, psychedelic roots. They have performed with a variety of drummers and guest musicians extensively throughout Southern Ontario and Quebec. With their anticipated offering Last Resort, The Beach Bats aim to push their sonic limits and engage audiences with lush arrangements, vocal dexterity and innovative guitar playing all indicative of their relentless work ethic.
