Jam/Grass/Folk from Portland, OR

From their inception around campfire jams, Band of Comerados has come a long way. Formed in 2015, the band spent a few years honing their songwriting and improvisational jamming by taking gigs at pubs, breweries, block parties, house concerts, weddings and more. What followed were shows at venerable Portland venues such as LaurelThirst, White Eagle, Goodfoot, Aladdin Theatre, Wonder Ballroom, and Mississippi Studios. This progression continued with visits to towns and cities all over the west coast, including reputable music festivals like What the Festival, Beltane Music Festival, 4 Peaks Music Festival, Northwest String Summit, and more.

Band of Comerados keeps playing music that makes you feel good. What sets the band apart is their intricate instrumentation, dual vocal parts, intense improvisational jams and the fact that these guys have so much damn fun when they’re playing live music!

Recorded in late 2019, and released in October 2020, the band's newest album, Kindsight, proved they could capture their live energy in the recording studio. The Comerados celebrated the release with a few outdoor shows and livestreams in the stilted summer of 2020. The album is currently available in CD, Vinyl, and Digital formats.
