Blue Roadhouse Orchestra aka BRO
"This band embodies everything I love about music. A great repertoire, awesome players and the gigs are a blast! Always a tasteful recipe of Rock, Soul, Blues and a little Funk and Jazz too."
BRO is all about old school R&B and classic jam based Rock N Roll party music. Although BRO has many honorary members, the band regularly features the soulful crooning of Kevin "Doc C" Crutchfield (www.kevdc.com) on vocals, Marc Jacoby (guitar,v) Cliff Mays (guitar,v) along with Jeff Reich on (bass guitar), and Jim Weingast (drums). If James Brown, Little Feat, Otis Redding, Van Morrison, The Stones, Beatles, The Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers make your body move, BRO is your band!
BRO frequently performs at street festivals, private parties, corporate events, parades, cool weddings, holiday gatherings, dive bars and summer family concerts.
BRO can be hired as an acoustic duo or grow as large as a 12 piece band with a complete horn section. Whatever your entertainment needs are BRO can accommodate the size of your party/event and provide you with a fantastic live band.
