Chris Bandi will be opening for Laine Hardy May 22 here at the farm! In witnessing the runaway success of his debut single, “Man Enough Now,” Chris Bandi is a firm believer in music’s power to unify others. He has a multifaceted voice that immediately resonates with any soul listening.
Bandi is proud to follow in the lineage of legendary musicians from his native St. Louis. In high school, he started his first band, a rock outfit that played throughout the city, including the iconic Duck Room at Chuck Berry’s Blueberry Hill.
He continued music in college at the University of Mississippi at Oxford by playing in a cover band with an alternative ambition to mostly get into bars and drink for free. It was his time in Mississippi that enriched a deeper dive into country music. He honed his craft relentlessly playing the same small clubs that built his idols, Luke Bryan and Eric Church.
Bandi released “Man Enough Now” independently on Spotify in 2017 so that his crowds could have something original to enjoy between concerts. The song received an immediate reaction and accumulated just over 5,000 streams in its first day. By the end of the week, they had 25,000 organic streams. Music Row caught on to the viral success of Bandi’s runaway hit when the song started receiving 1,000,000 weekly streams.
Bandi has joined American Idol Season 17 winner Laine Hardy on tour this fall before hitting the road with Matt Stell in January. A new EP is expected to release in early 2020.
Come see this talented musician here at the farm!
