BLACK BOTTOM LIGHTERS
BLACK BOTTOM LIGHTERS
With over 60 years of combined experience in musical study ranging from reggae, funk, jazz, blues, hip hop, R&B, and house, it is difficult to determine which way the Black Bottom Lighters will go when they get behind their instruments. Two guitars, keyboards, bass, drums, turntablist, and two vocalists form one of the most dynamic sounding groups in the Arizona desert. Built on an acoustic foundation, the BBL's sound is as difficult to describe as it is to dislike. From mellow unplugged personal performances to wild stage acts as well as a crowd that is typically on the cusp of being out of control, you are sure to have a memory or two when you leave one of their shows.

The Black Bottom Lighters began as a four piece group - 3 acoustic guitarists and a vocalist - jamming in a backyard in El Mirage, Arizona. With minimal rehearsal, they began to invade various acoustic open mics across the Valley. While winning over crowds and gaining love for their music, BBL started booking larger shows. With the addition of a percussionist, bassist, and turntablist BBL maintained their acoustic roots with a dynamic sound.

Black Bottom Lighters are currently in the process of recording their debut album and anticipate it's release. The have been featured on Phoenix's KWSS 106.7 " The Morning Infidelity" show and their single "Words To Say" has become a home grown hit. BBL is constantly performing all over the Phoenix area or in the studio rehearsing or recording.
