David Brothers and Friends perform on Thursday, March 21, at 8:00 p.m.
David Brothers, a critically acclaimed entertainer and composer, combines urban folk and blues giving it his own energy and style. He plays original material, and mixes it with elements from musicians who influenced him, including:
- John Coltrane
- Freddie King
- Muddy Waters
- Django Reinhart
- John Fahey
David’s career began at the Thirsty Armadillo in Ft. Worth, Texas. And, while working at the Fort Worth music store, he gained inspiration from hanging out with Leon Rouche, voice of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, and Dave Milsap, and Delbert Mclinton’s, a guitarist.
David moved to Portland Oregon, where he earned the Chistopher Mesi Memorial Scholarship from the Cascade Blues Association. He’s performed with some of the Pacific Northwest’s most elite musicians, including CBA Muddy Hall of Famers, Terry Robb and Robby Laws.
In 2009, David released his album, “Cornflakes and Gin”. He leads the David Brothers and Friends Band, performs solo, and also collaborates with other musicians. Stop by Myspace and catch a few of his songs before Thursday evening.
