From Woody Guthrie to Bob Dylan to the Dixie Chicks, topical music has been an important cultural tool reflecting the concerns of society and the yearning for a safer, saner world. “Blacklisted and The Banned” was formed in 2004 as off shoot of Long Island’s senior citizen rockin’ blues band – “The Defibrillators”. “Blacklisted” features timely original material to provoke thought, discussion, and occasional laughter. Of course the incursion in Iraq and the Bush Presidency are at the heart of the matter and this collection is in many ways a sequel to Sonny’s albums “How Does A Patriot Act?” and “Bibles, Guns & Flags”. The band recently received an award from the South Country Peace Group for “raising spirits and consciousness to promote peace and justice”.

The “Banned” consists of:
Sonny Meadows – Guitar & Vocals
Bob Campbell – Guitar & Vocals
Bob Westcott – Bass, Guitar & Vocals
Jon Foreman – Electric Guitar & Vocals
Robert Langley – Percussion & Vocals
