“The Menders deliver a range of musical influences that captivate the listener as they weave through genres in seemingly effortless fashion. To experience them live, you might begin the night listening to a modern folk band before you fare shockingly in the presence of a driving, get-the-hell-out-of-my-way rock 'n' roll performance. Every step of the way, you know you are listening to a group of musicians that love what they do.”
- Brett Barest, Anderson Independent Mail, 2016
Based out of Gastonia, NC, The Menders have been blending influences such as the Beatles, Jack White, The Doors, and The Who into a folk-laced garage rock sound. Since 2013, they've been honing their craft around NC, SC, GA, TN and FL at venues such as Neighborhood Theatre, The Visulite, Tin Roof - Charleston, The Hideaway, The Stillwater Taproom and The Cave. Having released 3 previous albums independently (and recording their fourth) The Menders seek to offer their fans and listeners a music experience that is sure to leave a lasting impression.
