Blunt Head Trauma (BHT) is an intimate local band from Morganton, North Carolina. Blunt Head Trauma has been jamming together for three years. They are a favorite among locals and visitors alike for their ability to draw crowds with their high energy funk fusion reggae sound. Based on listener votes, Blunt Head Trauma was voted one of the Top 20 Regional Releases for 2006 on 88.7 FM (WNCW) with their hit songs “Tsunami” and “Coconuts & Rum”. They have been interviewed on Reggae Splash Live Recording on 88.3 FM (WGWG) and 88.7 FM Studio B recording “Local Color”.
