Retro Soul & Garage Rock N' Roll!”


Black Bolts is a grooving, Garage Rock/Soul group hailing from Chicago. They draw their influences from 60's rock bands such as The Animals and from soul artists like Wilson Pickett. With the diverse combination of these two distinct genres, Black Bolts create a sound that is both new and familiar, but always original. They mix together covers and originals to put on a rock n roll/soul revue show that's one of a kind.
