Kimono Dragons
Prepare yourselves for the Kimono Dragons approach. Built4BBQ’s newest supergroup… features folks you know and love from Charmboy, The Pistolwhips, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, Alta Mira and the Rattling Baddlies, combining forces into a furious, four-headed surf-rock monster. Knees will tremble and faces will melt in their wake.

An all-original indie/alternative band from the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts.

Playing what they call accessible unconscious existential indie glitter popsicle crisis music, their fierce infectious harmonies, tight and unique grooves and songwriting will surely catch your attention.
