Lead Vocals, Guitar
"Take a second and wait 'cause I am nothing but your next mistake, I wrote lies in the palm of my hand and feed them to you 'cause I know I can," sample lyric taken from Black Tie Event's newly released song "Face This." Rewind back to 2010, founding members Brendan Bednarski (Guitar & Vocals) and Matt Domke (Guitar & Vocals) were in the same English class. Brendan had recorded some songs and brought them to school. He shared them with Matt and discovered they had similar musical interests. Matt didn’t know how to play an instrument but it didn’t discourage them from starting to write their own music; Brendan taught him how to play Bass. Eventually forming a full band, the original lineup released their first album "Nothing in Life is Free" in 2015. With diligent self-promotion and visionary marketing they quickly gained a loyal following in their hometown just outside Detroit, Michigan.
In addition to the founding members, the current band line-up includes Phil Balbona (Bass) and Ethan Martel (Drums). Produced in the high-impact punk-pop vein of national touring bands such as All Time Low, Pierce the Veil and Blink 182, Black Tie Event’s dynamic 2017 EP "One Last Picture for You" illustrates heavier undertones of an energy driven band. They have more than seven years and nearly 50 gigs under their belt, opening for headlining acts like Bret Michaels and touring with the Van's Warped Tour their fan base continues to grow nationally. With thousands of views on their music videos and a vast social-media following, Black Tie Event has built a strong musical presence in the industry and is determined to succeed.
