The Q-Tip Bandits are a Boston based exuberant bunch with an upbeat style with catchy songs, sharp and clearly defined melodies, and a jazzy feel. In addition to the standard guitar-bass-drums set up, the band also includes a trumpet and a trombone in their line up, which gives their music more depth and a fuller range. The horn section taps into a variety of styles ranging from classic jazz rock type choruses and pop accents to occasional marching band or second line vibes. Stylistically, the band also samples soul and funk sounds along the way. The entire band displays high end musicianship as guitarist Leo Son and bassist Claire Davis share the vocals duties and harmonies with quite a flair.
