ABOUT THE BAND

Hailing from Southern California, Bite Me Bambi brings sounds reminiscent of British 2 Tone and 3rd wave ska into the 21st century. With energetic songs and pedigree musicianship, BMB gets the crowd on their feet and dancing. Comprised of members from some of your favorite ska bands (My Superhero, Save Ferris, Starpool). This new group breathes fresh life to a genre that may have originated in Jamaica, and honed in Britain, but perfected in the haze, blight, glamour, and beauty of the Southland.
