Dave Grohl said in a recent interview,
“Musicians should go to a yard sale and buy an old fucking drum set and get in their garage and just suck. And get their friends to come in and they’ll suck, too. And then they’ll fucking start playing and they’ll have the best time they’ve ever had in their lives and then all of a sudden they’ll become Nirvana.”
Bodhi Tree is a band that has taken these words and ingrained them in the very core of their beings. Made up of 3 friends from Seattle, Bodhi Tree is the most honest rock band to leave the garage in years. A motley group of performers, Bodhi Tree exemplifies garage rock with an interesting blend of Rock, Funk and Punk that captivates, overwhelms and drags you on a rough and raucous ride to musical nirvana. After a little success touring around the Northwest, inlcuding The Strathcona Underground Festival in Vancouver BC, The Shoreline Music and Arts Festival, Seattle and Olympia HempFest Mainstages, and winners of the North Kitsap Battle of the Bands 2016 and from the success of their first garage single “Am I Dreaming” they reached out to a few local studios that they knew and started recording albums. With 2 full length albums, 2 demos and many recorded jams, Bodhi Tree was able to create a musical experience unlike any other.
After Breaking up due to life changes in 2017, the spirit of Bodhi Tree lives on in the current music scene as an ever changing force!
