The Story of MISS HEIDI & THE BAR ROOM BANDITS
Making music isn’t just a hobby, but the real purpose of my life!
This is how Miss Heidi explains her love for music. Hailing from Pretoria, MISS HEIDI & THE BAR ROOM BANDITS can be compared to a perfectly mixed cocktail, with just the right amount of country, blues and a dash of rock ‘n roll. Her original lyrics and deep raspy voice take you on a journey of storytelling and life experiences that stays with you long after the performance. In the beginning of 2017 Miss Heidi’s vision took a new shape from not just performing as a solo artist but wanting to tell her tales in its fullest form…with a BAND! Working for ‚the man‛ was not an option for her anymore and pursuing her life-long dream became her only mission.
The band has shared the stage with many local bands and artists and always loves to perform with fellow South-African musicians. Some of the bands and artists include: The Black Cat Bones, Piet Botha, Arno Carstens, WONDERboom, Riaan Nieuwenhuis, Georgetown Band, Gunshot Blue, Jan Blohm, Andra, Johnathan Martin, Hoot ‘n Anny to name a few.
Their songs are real, tight and most definitely different from your everyday Female fronted bands, especially in the SouthAfrican music industry. When asked what’s ahead for them, the answer is simple: Release their first studio album, get their music into the world and live on the stage as much as possible.
The only thing left to say is to get to their next performance to experience it for yourself!
