Since 2003, Comanchero has crafted an Americana sound that combines old traditions with new, Country with Rock, Bluegrass with Blues, Honky Tonk with Funk, and Roots with Rockabilly. While unique in their own sound, there is something strikingly familiar in Comanchero’s songs that weave influences ranging from Led Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers, Little Feat, to today’s contemporaries such as CAKE, Wilco, and Mumford & Sons.
Soulful and edgy, heartbreaking and heart making, Comanchero’s third release, “The Undeserved” will stay in your ears for a long time to come. Boston’s Americana Jam Band takes us through our human landscape of hope and despair, the good times and our lost ways.
This band has deservedly found its way. Comanchero sings us to where we’ve been and where we need to go. Listen to the driving drums and true voice of Greg Moon. Hear the unique licks of his brother, lead guitarist, Bob. And be taken by the sound and voice of rhythm guitar front man, Sam Margolis, all strongly supported by bassist Andrew Kramer and percussionist Jim Levin.
You’ll hear how they know there’s something in our heartache, when we lose faith in our national leaders, and when personal love breaks down. When Comanchero sings, “Oh, you can’t go home again”, it’s the home in their music you’ll find, their house you’ll want to find yourself in, room by room, track by track.
Having played hundreds of shows together, Comanchero travels far and wide from Biketoberfest in Daytona Beach, FL to the Great Falls Hot Air Balloon Festival in Auburn, ME. From clubs, to theaters, to pavilions, to colleges & universities, the band continues to push the boundaries of their live performances and consistently shares the stage with nationally touring artists such as Crosby, Stills & Nash, ZZ Top, Passion Pit, The Yardbirds, Southern Culture on the Skids, Cowboy Mouth, The David Wax Museum, and Girls, Guns, and Glory.
The stage energy, combined with carefully crafted songs and precise execution distinguish Comanchero as one of the rising Americana & jam-influenced bands on the East Coast. The band’s sound is edgy, tangible, eclectic, and totally danceable. As Jane Lindholm, Director and Associate Producer at National Public Radio observed: “Alt-Country Folk Rock melodies combine with great hooks and catchy lyrics to create a thoroughly enjoyable listening experience.”
