Since hitting the Phoenix music scene in 2010, The Bellwethers consistently perform edgy, high-energy, blues-fueled rock that light up stages across the Southwest. Gigging everywhere from dive bars to marquee venues, the band boasts a collective dynamic of talented musicians originating from the East and West coasts. The band has opened for international acts like REO Speedwagon and the Fran Cosmo band (former members of Boston). They have also been a featured artist at the Arizona Cardinals Pre-Game Show at State Farm Stadium.
An assemblage of music veterans, the band features Fran Scianna, Dan Scianna & Kim Dangerous formerly of The Sciannas, Bill Stimson formerly of Jonestown, and drum lord, Corey Plueard. Combining a broad brush of music styles combined with thought-provoking lyrics, the band cranks out soulful beats resulting in an artistic signature that is making them one of the Southwest’s must-see acts. With influences ranging from Pink Floyd to Bob Dylan to the Rolling Stones, the Bellwethers weave their way through multiple genres, belting out powerful performances underneath the bright desert lights.
Anyone who has seen the band perform is well aware of their incendiary live shows. Think blues, psychedelic, punk and classic 70's-era rock tossed into a blender and turned on high. The band continues to expand its horizons, gaining new fans at each performance and generating enthusiastic reviews. The band’s original music has been featured in local commercials and radio stations around the globe. A community-minded group, they regularly play benefits for various charity organizations, with a strong commitment to supporting impoverished families, suicide awareness & prevention, cancer & childhood disease foundations.
