BIO

Long story short...

"One of us is hot & sexy, one of us is drunk & lazy, one of us is batshit crazy and one of us is a robot." Folkadelia at its finest!

Long story long...

Called "Folkadelic" by most of us, Nasty Bingo's sound fuses folk, rock, blues, pop, country, gospel and a bunch of other stuff to create a very unique and accessible sound in the Dayton, Ohio area. Our original music blends all of the above with improvised portions and pop hooks that you will instantly fall in love with. Going strong since 2006!
