Social Media Release

This is a proof-of-concept release and not intended for actual use.

Pitch: On April 29, Cottonseed Studios will host Nashville-based band Banditos at the John Emerald Distillery in Opelika, Ala. The event will start at 8 p.m. and will last until 11 p.m.


Six years ago, Nashville-based sextet Banditos formed in Birmingham, Ala. while playing various punk and rock ‘n’ roll projects in DIY, all-ages venues. When the six-piece band realized that the bigger and more diverse music scene of Nashville could benefit their careers, they quickly made the move. A combination of ‘60s blues-fused acid rock, backwoods bluegrass and unexpected bits of doo-wop sweetness, the Banditos will bring nothing but original sound to the stage Friday night. Opelika-based Cottonseed Studio will bring the Banditos to John Emerald Distillery for an intimate and grungy performance to remember.
