    A 5-piece Boogie Fusion band, Basically Saturday Night(BSN) goes beyond the sound of the weekend. Across a backdrop of upbeat blues and a bouncing bassline, they can go from preaching melancholia and warding off inner demons, to celebrating youth and nostalgia in the same breath. They are the soundtrack to your midnight drive and your cold beer- basically your Saturday night
