PRESS REVIEWS

WCHC 88.1 FM, WORCESTER

“Cody Bondra & The Contraband, a new group coming to us out of Connecticut, recently released their newest single, 'I'm Alive.' This feisty track features a catchy melody, with stunning harmonies and fierce instrumentation to balance it all out. Bondra's lyrics are raw and powerful, and the energetic group behind him only enhances their meaning and speak to the true emotions underlying the words.”

THE HARTFORD PLUS

"In a time when new artists are emerging left and right, it’s hard to find someone that can capture every emotion of an everyday working person.  Well enter Cody Bondra & The Contraband.  The young group from the bars and clubs of New England, they're not flashy or glam. Just raw and straight forward.  With their uplifting, inspiring lyrics and soothing tones and voice.  Already creating a following they are sure to be a voice being heard from the dorm room to the break room. 

Being from a blue collar area has given their music a very personal and in depth relationship to the working class. 
 Following in the tradition of James McMurtry, and Bruce Springsteen, they're sure to strike a chord with Country and Rock N' Roll fans."
