The Brandos

Passion, grit, power, heart and soul - all words used by both fans and critics to describe THE BRANDOS’ signature rock 'n roll. Almost from the band's inception the music industry began hailing them as "the best new American band" (The Gavin Report), – Rolling Stone (US) ran a full-page story dubbing them "real contenders," and Time Magazine clinched it with their quote "The Brandos roots run deep and offer great nourishment." Their debut album release, “Honor Among Thieves,” with its featured single “Gettysburg,” received widespread radio and MTV airplay across North America and Europe with continuing critical acclaim, and paved the way for extensive touring which has continued to this day. Now, with more than thirtty years of making music both live and on record, The Brandos never fail to deliver and still receive these kinds of accolades – the Jan. 2007 edition of Rolling Stone (Germany) describes the band’s latest release, “Over the Border,” as “extreme hand-craftsmanship.”

At the heart of The Brandos is Dave Kincaid (lead vocals, guitars, banjo and mandolin), whose spirit and vision have been the driving-force of the band since its earliest beginnings. The Brandos is a hard-driving rock ‘n roll band - first and foremost- yet it’s one with a deep respect for older music traditions, occasionally flavoring the music with American, Irish or Latin-American traditional music. Fueled by Dave’s song writing, the band is known for its emotional and thought provoking songs -at times soulful and introspective, at others commanding and anthemic, yet at all times powerful and evocative.

If The Brandos’ recorded work has done much to garner its longtime, devoted fan-base, the band’s live performance has done as much, if not more, in this regard. Characterized by the intensity of their lead and harmony vocals -crackling with emotion and conviction, searing guitar solos and a thrilling dynamic and visual projection, these shows demonstrate the punch, power and authoritative playing of The Brandos.
With a relentless drive and a deep commitment to the spirit of rock ‘n roll, and to a lifetime of making music, The Brandos show no signs of slowing down any time soon, and look forward to a future of creating and performing their music.
