About

ABOUT US

Bullitt are a covers band based in Bournemouth, Dorset. We play songs from artists like Muse, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Buzzcocks, Kings of Leon, Killers etc. Visit our Facebook page to see more pictures, video clips and to become a fan. Click on Listen To Us to hear our session in the studio and check out our gig listings to see if we're playing anywhere near you soon - please come along and enjoy!

We started up in 2007 with a settled line up of Pete on Drums, Jon on Lead guitar, Leigh on vocals, Lou on bass and Andy on rhythm guitar in place towards the end of 2008. After years of gigging and generally making a lot of noise, Leigh left us and Del became the vocalist in 2015.

Gigging from London to Barcelona and several (much) smaller places in between, we've had a lot of people rocking!
