The Weekenders are a raw rock n’ roll band.

Boasting a sound hearkening back to the days when Rock N’ Roll legends reigned supreme over the radio waves, Salt Lake City-based The Weekenders aren’t in the business of treading lightly.

The fuzz groove four piece has honed the ability to pull from some of the best elements of Rock n Roll from Muscle Shoals to Grunge.    They have supported a handful of national acts including Blitzen Trapper, Band of Heathens, The Stone Foxes, Lukas Nelson and many others.

Here’s what the press is saying:

I could easily describe their music by comparing them to every psychedelic band from the seventies with touches of early grunge. But a better description would be to say that they are a band with no limitations. A band that lays it all on the line with no reserves both musically and lyrically.”          Indie Music Reviewer (4 out of 5 stars )

If you are a fan of heavy 70s rock, Don’t Plan On by The Weekenders is an album you should get for yourself.” Examiner.com

Think, the days when Page and Plant reigned supreme, Leslie West was the size of a mountain and Grand Funk still had… well, funk.  The Weekenders really manage to capture that early 70’s vibe….But they’re not without they’re own modern touch. Much like Jack White’s latest work that echos a bygone era, everything is bathed in a distinct homage to the classics.”    Ride with The Devil
