The story of Das Blankout started about two years ago. After having played with various groups, Matt Burghardt wanted to start his own band. Many jam sessions ensued and soon Kim, Matt’s sister, joined in on the bass and, drummer, Pat Bilodeau was added to the mix. The latter, who sports over two decades of experience as a musician, explains that he was immediately impressed by Matt’s talent as a lyricist: “During a jam session, Matt showed me drafts of songs he was working on. I’ve played with many bands over the years, but I knew right away that this was a musical project in which I wanted to take part.”
Das Blankout's music is a perfect blend of vintage rock'n'roll with a modern twist. Matt’s inviting vocals are smoothly complemented by his nifty supply of guitar riffs. His sister Kim styles the bass and adds angelic harmonies. Pat’s beats fuse the trio together – impressively, he adds another layer of vocals. Das Blankout’s live shows are creative and unparalleled, connecting every song into a constant flow of music that is guaranteed to keep you hooked and twisting.
