Biography

Black Bottom Lighters originated in 2010 out of Glendale, Arizona. Influenced heavily but not limited to reggae/rock, Black Bottom Lighters are inspired by hip hop and other touches of genres as well. From Steel Pulse and Shaggy, to Dirty Heads and Flogging Molly, their versatility is justified by having played shows with heavy hitters in a vast area of music.

 

Releasing their self-titled debut EP in late 2012, the unique sound of Black Bottom Lighters has made an impressive and still growing impact on the west coast. Early 2013 sent the 6-piece band on a successful west coast tour for the first time, “The Oregon Trail Tour.” This young and ambitious band has plans to release their first full length album in 2014. Expect many more milestones and achievements in the long predicted lifespan of the Black Bottom Lighters.
