The Blue Ribbon Bastards / Bio

We're a 4 piece Revved-Up Rockabilly Band Hailing from Buffalo NY, consisting of Lead Guitar-Steve Cryan, Upright Bass- Drew Przybycien, Drums- Jason Joseph, and Vocals- Wade Witczak. The band started in September of 2009 as a joke band between friends Drew, Steve and Wade. As we started to write some original songs, without a drummer, we began to take it more seriously. While in search of a drummer, we decided that it was a "good" idea to record a 5 song EP. So in March of 2010, we recorded our first EP entitled "Songs to Rob Trains To..." Seeing as we didn't have a drummer at this time, the owner of an"in-home" studio, played drums for us on that recording. About a month after recording, and searching since September, we finally acquired our drummer, Jason Joseph, better known as Jay. Luckily, Jay was a great addition to the band and caught on very quick to the songs. Not long after the acquiring our drummer, The Bastards played their first "Real" show in June of 2010 at a bar in Colden NY called "The Last Run". But that's enough of the Bastard History... Let's Fast Forward a bit... After 5 Years of being a band, We have been lucky enough to share the stage with many Rockabilly/Psychobilly Legends such as... Big Sandy & His Fly Rite Boys, The Chop Tops, Three Bad Jacks, The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band, The Royal Crowns, Kim Lenz & the Jaguars, The Koffin Kats, Al & The Black Cats, Skinny Jim & the #9 Blacktops, The Creepshow, The VooDoo Glow Skulls, and The Reverend Horton Heat! We've played at The East Coast's largest car show the "Syracuse Nationals" featuring over 8,000 cars in the "Old School Roundup". We recorded our first 16 song full length in April of 2012 entitled "Fire It Up" and It is now available for sale at any of our shows and online as well at www.catslikeus.com We all enjoy Hot Rods and Traditional Car Shows, and everyone in the band has a car 1955 or older. And let's not forget the most important part of the Bastards... We LOVE Beer! You can contact us through our email info@BlueRibbonBastards.com or Message through our facebook page. Hope you enjoy the tunes! And Keep checking back for updates! We are working on new material and hope to have a new full length released soon!
