Description


Formed by a pair of former Cal Berkeley students who shared a love of early jazz and barroom blues, the band began as humbly and seemingly incongruous as possible, with the pair dragging their Wurlitzer spinet around to busk on street corners around San Francisco and the East Bay. The John Brothers Piano Company have built a devoted fan base one show at a time, blending timeless classics and original compositions with nearly irrepressible energy, and the lineup has expanded to a quartet of prodigiously talented multi-instrumentalists. They’ve graduated from performing on the street to headlining many Bay Area venues The Chapel, Great American Music Hall, Bimbo’s 365 and performing at a multitude of festivals and events SFJAZZ, Stern Grove Festival, Yerba Buena Gardens Festival, Oakland Art + Soul, Outside Lands, Le Festif!. In addition to headlining there own shows they’ve performed alongside phenomenal artists like Karen O, Booker T, Joan Osborne, Sugar Pie Desanto, to name a few. Asked to describe their sound and approach by The Bay Bridged, the band responded, “This group is a punk band with jazz instruments and classical inclinations.”
