Stink Bamboo is an alternative-fusion trio from Aiken, SC with just the right amount of groove, jazz licks and pop infused melodies to get you moving and feeling good. At first the name may catch you off guard, but then again so does their music. That’s the part of the charm and appeal to this powerful indie group that continues to captivate and wow audiences. Tevey, Ruby and Rocky form this lighthearted trio who compose, perform and produce all of their original music. Listeners will immediately noticed a vast array of different styles and genres of music consistently swirling throughout the songs. Weaving in and out of jazz, pop, R&B and even reggae at times, the band creates an amalgamation of mellifluous tunes that will be sure to get stuck in your head.
