Blaze The Nation @ The Tequila Garage El Paso, TX
BTN is a group of 6 inspired musicians with diverse backgrounds... Dennis’s passion as a country/rock guitarist & lyricist... Connor’s inventiveness as a rock/metal guitarist & lyricist... Corey’s flair as a rock/jazz drummer... Chris’s skill as a funkadelic bassist... Anthony’s gift as a freestyle hip-hop artist & vocalist... and Wade’s finesse as a percussionist.
The band uses their creative instrumental and vocal collaborations to develop their unique song arrangements and hooks. Their versatile range includes reggae & rock themes, and they adapt electric versions into acoustic style renditions. This allows the band to perform at club and outdoor events, and acoustically at smaller gigs and intimate settings. BTN also enjoys playing private parties to an enthusiastic following and has expanded their fan base making them a favorite local band.
Blaze The Nation has now written over 40 original songs, as well as adding the BTN style to a cover list of rock and reggae songs by Sublime, The Expendables, Slightly Stoopid, Pepper, Alice In Chains, Cross Canadian Ragweed and 311, to name a few. Their self-produced tracks include an EP studio session and recorded live shows. BTN continues to play local area shows and is expanding their event bookings regionally, along with writing and recording new music. With the love of their music and dedication to their fans, Blaze The Nation looks forward to spreading their good vibes across the nation!
