Still working on that hot first release.



Budget Airlines plays catchy, original music, blending pop hooks and melodic bass lines with rock 'n' roll riffs. The band formed in 2007, when a craigslist ad brought together lead guitarist/keyboardist Dave Farrens and singer/rhythm guitarist Michael Keefe. After working up a handful of demos, they recruited the rhythm section of bassist Sean Mersereau and drummer Bill McDonald (ex-Camper Van Beethoven).

Budget Airlines have dedicated the majority of their time together to writing and recording the thirty+ original songs in their repertoire, while honing their powerful and infectious live sound. After successful recent shows, the group looks to increase their gigging activity throughout 2011 and beyond.

Budget Airlines are also putting the finishing touches on their debut Eps and album, due mid-2011. The tracks reveal fifty years of rock and guitar pop influences, from Buddy Holly to Spoon, with nods to The Rolling Stones, Elvis Costello, The Clash, The Cars and Wilco.

The music of Budget Airlines is perfect for any live bill featuring indie pop, alternative music, or straight up rock. Their recordings are available for commercial use and inclusion on soundtracks and compilations.
