It's a big dirty world.

Banderas is a big dirty band.

Banderas formed in '05 after the constraints of the member's previous local Cincinnati bands fell to the wayside of musicianship and natural evolution. The results are what has been coined "Dune Boogie" a blend of get out and dance garage rock, swaggering desert tinged stoner rock, and everything else grandiose along the way.

Spending the first year honing their craft live, Banderas shows became things of cult legend. Stories quickly surfaced of the band's line treading nature and their ability to figuratively and literally set the local bars on fire. Banderas found themselves in high demand and became a go to group to open for established touring acts and the headliners for the Poison Room's Toxic Fest as well as Cincypunk VI. The buzz culminated in late '07 to Banderas winning the Cincinnati Entertainment Award by local newspaper Citybeat for best local hard rock band, an award they have thus far been nominated twice for.

Now extending their reach to all neighboring cities and beyond, Banderas is sure to be another shining example as to why Cincinnati is wellspring of musical talent.
