Fridays After Five: The BLNDRS

with WKNDR


The BLNDRS - Psychedelic Blues Rock

The BLNDRS are a psychedelic blues rock band from central Virginia. The four-piece has been playing unforgivingly honest and original rock'n'roll since 2015 and has nurtured an impressive regional following. The group is best known for their creative and dynamic grooves and their unpredictable improvisation, but The BLNDRS have also come to be known for the culture of friendship, intimacy, and positivity that the band of friends exude on and offstage.

Alice, Nate, Tommy, and Ben all are songwriters, multi-instrumentalists, and vocalists in The BLNDRS. While you will undoubtedly see Ben behind the drums, Tommy playing bass, and Nate and Alice on guitar at a show, this is in no way the limit of The BLNDRS. Consisting of four best friends, The BLNDRS have carved out their own universe of fun and friendship through the language of music. The four musicians grew up together and have struggled and overcome together. This is evident in their collective presence, and the joy emanating from the stage with their music.

Their self-titled EP was released in 2017 and have played over 100 shows since its debut. The BLNDRS released their single, "Ends Where It Begins" in the spring of 2019, and their single “Distant Light” in 2020. Their debut full length album “hello?” was released August 13th of 2021.

The BLNDRS have made countless appearances at venues across the east coast and have opened for numerous nationally acclaimed acts. The BLNDRS launched a side project in the fall of 2018 called The Chain Gang: The BLNDRS as the Pretenders. They performed several shows as The Chain Gang, even opening for Southern Accents: A Tribute to Tom Petty at the Jefferson Theater in downtown Charlottesville. The BLNDRS have also launched another project called the Grateful BLND, their own take on the Grateful Dead.
