Archie and the Bunkers, which consists of teenage brothers Emmett and Cullen O'Connor on keys and vocals, formed in 2013. They are a musical anomaly in that the compositions they write are refreshingly new, but they draw their influences from classic musicians and movies of the past. 2015 has been a year that have seen the band propel from a mostly word of mouth local band to national and international acclaim.
The buzzing "rust belt" duo from Cleveland, flew into Geneva last week to kick start their first ever European jaunt and have been stunning audiences ever since with their electrifying performances and hyper charming stage personas. They were the band everyone was talking about at last weekends Cosmic Trip festival in Bourges, France. King Khan even joined them on stage paying homage to The Stooges and have had screaming girls falling at their feet and people lining up to get their pictures taken with them, including the other bands!
The band have just finished Paris, Utrecht, and Groningen and will be playing the world famous Club Paradiso tonight in Amsterdam, and then on to Antwerp before the much anticipated Hipsville a go a go festival performance in Bordon, UK.
The second leg will kick off in Spain with five shows starting in Madrid at the Wurlitzer Ballroom which we think will be one (of many) of those " I was there" performances for the Spanish and European audiences to always remember, followed by dates in Vigo, Oviedo, Santander, Pamplona, and San Sebastian.
After they return from the sun in Spain, we can now reveal, that they will cap their adventure in London, at a very, very special Dirty Water Club on Sunday,May 22nd at Nambucca, with spirited label mates The Cavemen ( NZ) and Brighton fellow sibling duo Sons . Advance tickets here

The club has also seen some original '60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.
Their in-house record label, Dirty Water Records, is one of the leading garage/beat/(real) R&B labels in the world.
