The Bandits' season isn't getting off to a good start this year as the Bandits dropped a heart breaker to the visiting Toronto Rock at HSBC Arena last night. Some questionable officiating and a porous defense were keys in a game that still lacked the great John Tavares.
Like the Bandits, the Bandettes have had to adjust to a teammate not being able to perform. However, unlike the Bandits, the dance team has performed outstandingly. Head choreographer Erin Y has stepped in on select performances and captains Meghan and Justina have helped the squad adjust to routines and performances with 1 fewer dancer.
Prior to the game, the Bandettes greeted fans, posed for photos, signed autographs, and handed out information on their Jr Bandettes program.

During the game, the Bandettes unveiled something special, some hot new uniforms and performed a pair of performances in them as well as a performance that 3rd year captain Justina put together in her free time. After the game, most of the squad spent some time at Pearl Street Grill and Brewery with fans and players alike as everyone wound down from a tough evening.
Coming up next for the Bandettes, a number of them will be putting in an appearance at the Buffalo Auto Show on Feb 10, Wednesday evening from 6-8 but they won't be alone as even though he hasn't been able to play yet this season, superstar John Tavares can still put in appearances and will be on hand for photos and autographs.

The Bandettes next take the floor at HSBC Arena on February 27 as the Bandits play host to the visiting Philadelphia Wings, in a game which the Bandits hope to have Tavares back in the lineup
