CONCERT OVERLOAD: Live performance #857 – The Brother Brothers at McCabe’s Guitar Store (January 13, 2019)


To nobody’s shock, my first live performance of the brand new yr passed off at McCabe’s Guitar Store and it was a very good one.

It did not take lengthy for Adam and David Moss, collectively referred to as the Brother Brothers, to conjure up favorable comparisons with the likes of the Everly Brothers and Simon & Garfunkel. Certainly, their vocal harmonies are among the best I’ve ever heard and I am not exaggerating. Furthermore, they write good songs, play a number of devices, have likeable personalities, so that they do have most of what it takes to placed on a very good present.

Enjoying and not using a predetermined set listing, Adam and David delivered many songs from “Some Folks I Know”, their lately launched debut album. Those I preferred the most effective have been “Pink And Gold”, “Banjo Tune” and Peter Rowan’s “Paper Bride”. Not on the album, however sounding equally good, have been “Chook In A Tree” and “Notary Public”.

The duo’s two-song encore consisted of David Houston’s “I Informed Them All About You” and Dolly Parton’s “I Will At all times Love You”. Each sounded nice.

General, Adam and David impressed me fairly a bit. I’ve nothing unfavourable to say about their efficiency, however as I used to be driving dwelling, I believed that the inclusion of an uptempo medley of some Everly Brothers hits would have introduced the home down.

Connor & Arianne Vance, the night’s opening act, performed a brief set that, in a single phrase, may be described as nice. Their greatest quantity was “We Are Not The Jet Set”, initially recorded by John Prine & Iris DeMent a few many years in the past. Connor is well-known to me because the Dustbowl Revival’s devilishly good fiddler.
