26 BATS!

Born out of the Kremblems collective, group leader Bailey "26" Cogan (they/them) formed 26 BATS! 26's songwriting melded with Karl Remus' (he/him) production wizardry and flavors from comrades in arms: Christian Wheeler (he/him, bass) and Daniel "Chavo" Chavez (he/him, trumpet) create grooves that bob and weave through sonic rabbit holes.

Coined 'the Genre Rebel' by Growler Mag, they wrote, "26 BATS! has successfully garnered a following comprised of all kinds of music lovers. Being unmoored to any one genre puts the group in a unique spot, allowing them to share bills with a variety of acts: from Afrobeat legend Femi Kuti, Black Pumas, and Kirin J Callinan, to the silky, beat-laden Dua Saleh."
