Bandits On The Run 
is a three piece group from New York: Adrian Enscoe on gu¬itar, Sydney Shephe¬rd on Cello and Regi¬na Strayhorn on percussion, when infused with their 3 part harmonies it becomes pure magic, good enough for your ears to eat. After battling through the tough rounds, of the "Coffee Music Project" 2017 sing¬er songwriter Competition www.coffeemusicproject.com they won the hearts and ears of the judges who adjudicated in the finals at Rockwood Music Hall, in New York.
Inclusion. Community. Love. Connection. Unity. Joy. Light and hope in unexpected places; that is what Bandits On The Run has been about from the very beginning. Performing in New York subways and other environments that were cold, impersonal, dangerous and downright dirty, whilst tired these 3 misfits brought warmth and a brighter day wherever they went.
Bring yourself as you are, all flaws, troubles, ideologies, fears and longings and they will do their best to give you solace, laughter, hope, and tunes to tap your feet to.
No longer on the RUN, but will be on tour in Europe during April 2018, spreading their free spirit smiles and wonderful music.
So watch out for them, they are going places!
