The Fancy Bandits

Fancy Bandits are a Eugene band who have been described by some as the “Tim Burton Circus” as their songs tend to sound eerie with a flair for the weird.  The band started in the spring of  2008 and a year later, released their debut CD Stealing Away as a three-piece combo, including such songs as State of Mine, Good Morning and Mission Impossible. With a strong keyboard sound ranging from old world organ grinders to Gothic retro Wurlitzer sounds, this band only recently added guitar to their eclectic sound.
The band is unique with the full goth-like keyboards, and sound much like a mix of the PJ Harvey, Pink Floyd and The Smiths.
