Nerds are cool. We know that. Hip hop’s cool. So, why the heck wouldn’t hiphop/rock group Band Nerds be cool too? Answer’s easy. It is!
These guys are not ‘playing around’ with rock. The transitions and blending of the two genres are flawless. It’s a shame to have to categorize these guys (as they obviously hate being forced into a box) but they really are hip hop and rock… for real. - Ayara Pommells-AfroPunk


““Miserable,” Band Nerds To these ears, the blend of rap and angsty rock knows no middle ground. For every Faith No More or Rage Against the Machine record worth cherishing, there’s a Limp Bizkit or Papa Roach single that brings a pained shudder. That’s why the prospect of listening to the Dallas rap-rock act Band Nerds for the first time scared me. But despite the six-piece’s public devotion to Linkin Park and other bands that tend to irk, these guys pull off the hybrid sound quite effectively on “Miserable.” The rhythm and vocal control of singer/rapper Brandon Cross provide enough believability for me to overlook some unnecessary DJ scratching effects. But make no mistake: If these guys ever cover “Nookie,” I’m out.” - Hunter Hauk, GuideLive Pop Culture-The Dallas Morning News (Sep 23, 2013)


I’ve just listened to Don’t Love Me by Band Nerds. One word: FIRE.!! This song is art. It combines fast paced rock with the raw flow of rap. This songs talks about not being ready to love. - Cataplay


Rock-rap group brings inspiration from an unique combination of sounds. Punchy lyrics combined with high energy performances create a recipe for success. - My Own Spin-Elijah and Chris K


Although an abrupt closure initially threatened to derail it, Fort Worth rapper Smoothvega will proceed with his March of Dimes benefit show at 9 p.m. Friday at Ridglea Bar. Along with Smoothvega, the lineup will include Prophase, Band Nerds, Dflo and Sir Thomas, among others

"In my opinion, they were on a completely different level and could cross cultural, racial and socioeconomic boundaries in a way most of these artists couldn’t fathom."
- Schmidtysays.com


We Are Band Nerds have created a nine-track record of infectious grooves, funk, jazz, metal and a side dish of rap.

Bio

We Are Band Nerds is composed of Brandon Cross (MC/VOCALIST), Tony Lucas (MC), Dorian “Scullie” Thomas (Guitarist), Carlos “DJ Sol*Los” Juarez (DJ/Sampler), Cam I Am (Drums), and Santos "Sandman" Johnson (Bass).
The “Band Nerds” sound is a unique take on your typical “nu metal” experience as it creatively blends elements of jazz, metal, electronic, rap & rock music. Their lyrics tackle the real-life perspective of middle class minorities, discussing relationships, discrimination, and politics; yet providing motivational and relatable commentary.
The infectious energy on stage during a “Band Nerds” performance urges you to jump up and down and whip your hair back and forth all the while screaming along to songs like I Could Change, an introspective song about feeling hopeless and stuck when your life hasn’t panned out the way you expected and Whore, an all too familiar ode to being burned in a relationship and seeking “non committal” relationships while nurturing your wounded soul.
On any given Thursday or Friday night, you can catch We Are Band Nerds playing at a variety of venues in Deep Ellum/Dallas, Denton, Fort Worth, or Austin.
According to lead singer Brandon Cross, “We hope to start a movement to inspire minority bands to dive back into rock in roll. In 10 years we want to be remembered as the band who brought back musicianship and mosh pits.” We are Band Nerds is the future. This is what the future is bound to look like.
