Pop rock band Black Tie Stereo headlines The Leonard Kickoff Party in Scranton on Nov. 4
With the long-vacant Leonard Theater in downtown Scranton finally alive and booking concerts and other entertainment again, local bands have been waiting to get back into the building and pack its 4,000 square foot floor with fans, like The Menzingers did at their Holiday Show back in 2014.
They’ll have their first chance on Friday, Nov. 4 at 8 p.m. when Scranton pop rock band Black Tie Stereo headlines The Leonard Kickoff Party with fellow Scranton rockers Esta Coda and The Boneflowers, a newly formed alternative rock act that debuted at the 2016 Steamtown Music Awards last month.
As an in-demand cover band who also write their own original tunes, the four recent college grads in Black Tie Stereo have proven themselves as a band to watch this year as they were voted the “Best Pop/Top 40 Act” in the Steamtown Music Awards and won a Battle of the Bands to play Fuzz Fest, opening for Weezer, Panic! at the Disco, AWOLNATION, and Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness at The Pavilion at Montage Mountain. They even played with the Steve Miller Band at SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida back in March.
Black Tie Stereo released a self-titled EP in 2014, followed by two catchy singles, “Electric Allie” in 2015 and “The Artist” earlier this year. They plan to make a big announcement at the Nov. 4 show, which may be about their next album. In the meantime, stream some of their current music below:
