Cigar Store Indians is an American roots music band that plays all original, dirt under the finger nails, dance all night music.
CSI has travelled the USA (and parts of the world) extensively entertaining all ages and all walks of life with their unique brand of roots-rock, rockabilly and country music. Frontman Ben Friedman's infectious charisma gets the crowd going and doesn't stop moving until the last note is played.
At nearly twenty years on, CSI is still selling out venues and providing high-energy entertainment after festivals across the country.
