BingBong formed around their love for late-70s/early-80s guitar rock. Striving to revive that time's verve & the energetic power pop, they're influenced by greats like Pretenders, & Smiths. BingBong's raucous live shows pack larger venues with pure energy & local pub gigs yield a feeling of "Wow! I just witnessed something awesome!"
BingBong has two songwriters with complementary but diverse writing styles. Pam Barrett's songs are visually evocative with characters & plots that come alive. Danny Hicks, through hook-laden guitar riffs, is intensely, mood driven. The two-pronged approach gives BingBong a broad sonic canvas on which they paint their live shows. BingBong's rhythm section keeps the heat on with Brian Bentley (drums) & Julie Kiland (bass).
Their debut album, Pop Restoration, is a testament to the band's philosophy that pop can, & should, ROCK! The record ranges from the Americana-esque "Many Years" to the heavy-rocking "Sugar & Spice" to the pop-tastic "It's Complicated."
