Circus pop band from Minneapolis. Fronted by the transgender nonbinary legend, Babo aka Bailey 26 Cogan (they/them) and accompanied by their gentle giant bestie, Karl Remus (he/him) on guitar, synths, and production. This duo is electrifying live and turns the party out with nasty grooves & riffs, catchy melodies, and portal opening lyricism. Coined 'the Genre Rebel' by Growler Mag, they wrote "26 BATS! has successfully garnered a following comprised of all kinds of music lovers. Being unmoored to any one genre puts the group in a unique spot, allowing them to share bills with a variety of acts: from Afrobeat legend Femi Kuti, Black Pumas, and Kirin J Callinan, to the silky, beat-laden Dua Saleh."

It's a little bit of jazz, a little bit of R&B, a little bit of indie rock, and enough soul to make it interesting.”
