Bunbury Festival featured artist: The Minor Leagues

The Minor Leagues perform on the AliveOne stage at 5:15pm on Friday, July 13

The Minor Leagues are a 7-piece band from Cincinnati that “blends Brill Building arrangements with the drive and sing-along choruses of 90s Brit-pop, all set against a backdrop of lush instrumentation. The band’s past work has earned them comparisons to recent popsmiths like Belle & Sebastian and The New Pornographers, but their charm, witty lyricism and ear for detail sets them apart from the rest.”
