Biography

There is more than one Banderas. British and American. Only one group is currently active and making rocktacular music.

1. Dune buggy pirates with their grappling hooks aimed at the monolith. Banderas is a rock n’ roll ensemble comprised of such celebrated modern day folk heroes as Jeremy Constantinople, Jesse James Ramsey, Cu Silvio, T.R. McHenry, and Donkey. A swaggering, sexual tyrannosaurus unleashed upon the juke joints and the speak easies.

It’s a big dirty world.

Banderas is a big dirty band.

Banderas formed in ‘05 after the constraints of the member’s previous local Cincinnati bands fell to the wayside of musicianship and natural evolution. the results are what has been coined “dune boogie” a blend of get out and dance garage rock, swaggering desert tinged stoner rock, and everything else grandiose along the way.

Spending the first year honing their craft live, Banderas shows became things of cult legend. Stories quickly surfaced of the band’s line treading nature and thier ability to figuratively and literally set the local bars on fire. Banderas found themselves in high demand and became a go to group to open for established touring acts and the headliners for the Poison Room’s Toxic Fest as well as Cincypunk VI. The buzz culminated in late ‘07 to Banderas winning the Cincinnati Entertainment Award by local newspaper Citybeat for best local hard rock band, an award they have thus far been nominated twice for.

    Amazing that people still remember the songs from the 90s. I always loved the album "Ripe".At that time I recorded a whole mc with the song "This is your life" :-)

    from Sally Herbert's myspace (Caroline Buckley was the singer): "Started off touring with The Communards on the Violin, and went on to form The Banderas with my drinking partner from the Communards, Caroline Buckley. We managed to release one album in the 90's including the single 'This Is Your Life'. I've worked as an orchestral arranger for the past 10 years for some inspirational artists including : Radiohead, Manic Street Preachers, Florence + the Machine, Travis, Robbie Williams, Zero 7, Kylie Minogue and many more. I've carried on writing... adverts, short films, songs and for theatre and dance companies.

    One of the great bands in Cincinnati, OH right now, The music scene there is proving to contain a great amount of talented, diverse young musicians. Not sure how to do it, but check out some of the other bands on Last.fm from Cincinnati and you will know what I mean.

    May This Be Your Last Sorrow is their best I think. But it is also very relieving that someone has written such a simple and true song as Why Aren't You In Love With Me? an alternative to all the baby I love you so and why did you leave me? songs, for those of us who don't even get there in the first place! :´-)

    To true. I still listen to this often years later. Why Aren't You In Love With Me, especially seems universal.
