The band formed in early 2014 but all members are veterans of the Western Washington and Western Canada music scene, having played locally for many years.
The Blokes took off after winning the KISM Road to Rock Star Competition in May of 2014 by a landslide and quickly went to work recording their first CD of all original material. Several high profile shows followed, as well as many opportunities to play in local clubs and musical venues in the greater Whatcom, Skagit, and Snohomish county areas.
2015 and 2016 have been banner years as well…The Naughty Blokes played the Main Stage at The Mt. Baker Rhythm and Blues Festival in 2014, 2015, and 2016. In April of 2016, The Naughty Blokes released their first FULL LENGTH CD titled, “We Rise.”
Thea Hart of “What’s Up” Magazine says in her review “The Naughty Blokes boldly rocked through fun toe-tapping tunes, sweet riffs and smooth progressions galore in their energetic and well-arranged set. The group easily caught the ear and the interest of every one present. They brought well balanced brit rock featuring confident and clear guitar work and ear catching vocals. This is the kind of music you turn up when you hear it on the radio.”
The Blokes’ blend of catchy tunes, soulful vocals, soaring guitar hooks and a strong rhythm section, along with a fun stage presence, guarantees a good time for all!
