BingBong formed in 2012, quickly becoming one of Madison, Wisconsin’s favorite bands.  Since 2018, BingBong has been racking up Madison Area Music Association (MAMA) Awards for Song of the Year (5 wins) and Rock Performer of the Year (2 wins). In short, they can write and play a tune with verve and elan. Members of the band formed around their love for late-70s and early-80s guitar rock. Striving to revive the feel and the energetic power pop of that time, they’re heavily influenced by greats like Rockpile, The Pretenders, and The Smiths. BingBong’s raucous live shows—as witnessed by that blowout show at the storied Double Door in Chicago (2014)—speak to their ability to pack a larger venue with pure energy. Their local pub gigs yield a feeling of “Wow! I just witnessed something awesome!”
