The Band Road: The Band Camino on their recent local success


By Chris Shaw at The Memphis Flyer


Since forming in the summer of last year, the Band Camino has become one of the hottest acts in the city, landing gigs at Minglewood Hall, BankPlus Amphitheater, and at Beale Street Music Fest, all on the strength of their debut EP, My Thoughts on You. I caught up with the pop rock band (three of whom are full-time students at the U of M) to find out the secret to their early success. — Chris Shaw

The Memphis Flyer: You guys formed less than a year ago, but you’ve already played all these big-time shows. How did all that happen so fast?

Spencer Stewart (guitar, vocals): I think there’s mixed explanations for each of the big shows we’ve played. Putting ourselves in the right places at the right time has helped a lot. A lot of it is luck, too. Somebody just happening to be in a good mood that day. It’s kind of unspoken for us, but we have always had a plan in action before we put us out there.
