Feeling a bit camera shy


"Stealing From Bandits" officially came together in 2006. Sean O'Connell (lead guitar) approached classmate Liam Dirlam (lead vocals) in 2002 while attending the same high school in Washington, DC and suggested collaborating musically.

After moving to South Carolina, Liam met the incredibly talented McKenzie Eddy (female vocals) and the three of them recorded several promising tracks in different dorm rooms, apartments, and houses around the area.

Drummer Geoff Robertson was discovered by Sean and the search for a bassist was on. After auditioning several talented musicians, Rob Corrigan was selected.

Due to personal reasons, the band was recently forced to audition other bass players and were lucky enough to find an extremely worthy partner in Jayson Boyles who had previously worked with McKenzie. The 23 year old Jayson has over 8 years of experience on the bass and will bring a new dynamic to the group.

This 5-piece has shared the stage with such nationally recognized acts as Rehab, Crazy Anglos, Passafire, and Badfish (Sublime Tribute Band).

The buzz continues to grow in Columbia, SC as Stealing From Bandits play for packed venues every show and are able to keep the crowd excited.

In Washington DC, SFB has played two consecutive downtown shows that were completely sold out and the fire marshalls are certainly notified everytime they come to town.

Local Media outlets are beginning to recognize the band as they were given a segment on WIS-10 FOX morning news March. 17, 2007 as promotion for their St. Patrick's Day performance later that day.

Local band/venue managers in Columbia have called Stealing From Bandits the "most important" band to come out of this town in the last 10 years.
