The Reverb Brothers, a six-piece band, blend roadhouse, roots country, blues, jug, New Orleans, R&B, rock & roll and old-time jazz. Their music brings a high energy with acoustic and electric instruments and great vocals. The Reverb Brothers offer original tunes as well as obscure covers from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s.
Their material has grown through their search of music and artists that their childhood heroes listened to. They attribute their sound to artists including The Stones, The Kinks, Bob Dylan, Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash. And, just to dig deeper they also listened to older performers including Muddy Waters, Riley Pucket, Richard “Rabbit” Brown, Little Willie John and Big Bill Broonzy. That’s a lot of artists helping form the group we know today as The Reverb Brothers.
- Claes Almroth: keyboards, mouth harp, lead vocals
- Doug Marx: acoustic guitar, lead vocals
- Allan Lemley: electric guitar, back-up vocals
- Dave “Gutbucket” Duffield: blues cornet
- Whit Draper: electric bass
- Fred Ingram: drums, back-up smiles
The Reverb Brothers are all veterans of the Northwest roots music scene.
And to celebrate the last day of August, Mock Crest Tavern will bring in Modern Pantheist. You’re sure to enjoy this great psych rock group from Los Angeles, California. The performance begins at 9:00 p.m. on Saturday the 31st.
They just released their debut album, and you can hear their tunes on their website. I loved “Lust for Hearts” and “How Everything Comes Around”. I suspect we will hear much more from them in the future.
Have a great week, and we’ll see ya there!
