Rock disguised as folk. In January 2012 The Ballroom Thieves broke into the Boston scene with a five-song, foot-stomping EP entitled The Devil & The Deep. Since their debut release the trio has captivated audiences with their unique instrumentation and dazzling three-part vocal harmonies. In the span of just one year they have performed at over 50 colleges nationwide, shared the stage with established acts such as Dispatch, The Lone Bellow, Little Green Cars, and Houndmouth, and played to sold-out crowds at the The Sinclair, Great Scott and the historic Club Passim in Cambridge, MA.
The Ballroom Thieves consistently deliver inspiring live performances highlighted by the group's infectious passion and raw energy, which are unrivaled in the local acoustic music scene. The sonic diversity of their growing repertoire allows the band to entrance an intimate listening room one night and entertain a large festival crowd the next.
