The Tejon Street Corner Thieves hail from the Colorado Rockies. The outlaw blues and trash-grass pioneers forged their original brand of whiskey roots from the ground up. Honing their craft on the streets, they swiftly gained recognition from the music community with the 2015 Gazette “Best of the Springs” award, 2017 Pikes Peak Art Council “Best In Show”, and back-to-back 2018 and 2019 Colorado Springs Independent “Best Original Band”.
Tejon Street Corner Thieves recently went viral with their response to the COVID-19 global pandemic canceling their tour. The band has found a new way to get their music directly to fans via drive-by performances. Tejon Street Corner Thieves are currently using their tour bus and a P.A system to drive through fan’s neighborhoods and perform from inside the vehicle, while fans take in the concert on their front porch maintaining safe social distances. The performances drew the attention of Fox News, ABC News, NBC 5 in Colorado, and MetalInjection, who covered the band and the group’s unique approach to playing shows during the outbreak. Since then, other bands across America have adopted a similar strategy for performing drive-by concerts in other states and credited Tejon Street Corner Thieves for their original idea.
As an internationally touring act, the band has become notorious for their shenanigans and over the top live performance. TSCT’s consistent show schedule and heart filled showmanship has captured the hearts of show goers everywhere. These guys are wild.
