The Collektives - the greatest band you never knew.

Formed in 2019, the band mates found each other and connecting with audiences during live music jams. Earning a reputation for uplifting performances of cult classics, a demand grew for the group to play shows at local music venues and bars. Without a name or any intention to form a band, the group quickly finalized on the name, the Collektives, due to their interchangeable musicians for live performances. Front singer, Tatiana Blades, leads with incredible power captivating listeners with a distinctive voice that holds synonymous with the Blades surname.

Known for delivering music that is an ambitious mix of dreamy vocals, hooks and powerful songs that connect to listeners.  Live performances alternate 3-6 musicians with Tatiana at the lead of each show. Band mates Zeke, Eddy Gatoe (rhythm guitar - influenced by Beatles and Green Day); Joe Hernandez (drums - influenced by Tool); Harold Trucco (lead guitar - influenced by Hendrix & Van Halen) and Gaston Zukowsi (influenced by Santana) bring a mix of latin, punk rock and blues to breath new life into obscure covers and create original music with a message worth hearing.
