Defying notions of what a 2 piece act should be, Brother O’ Brother’s live performance has been dubbed the best live performance in all of Indianapolis by multiple press outlets as well as the best rock band in all of Indianapolis by NUVO. Mix socio-political realties with tone beef and you’ve got it. B.O.B. has toured to the tune of over 400 shows received critical acclaim, & sold more vinyl than one can imagine across  6 different independent labels. Brother O’ Brother currently is working on their newest LP  SKIN WALKER via the highly custom Romanus Records.


“Initially, I couldn’t put my finger on what Brother O’ Brother’s music reminded me of. And then it hit me – Jimi Hendrix marries AC DC: their offspring is Brother O’ Brother. There’s an indefinable element, a pulverizing rawness that prompts such an analogy. There’s a stochastic resonance to Brother O’ Brother’s sound that’s assertive and visceral, like a kick in the stomach.” –Huffington Post

“Strong vocals and amazing musicality? Double check. Immerse yourself in the grandeur of garage rock and soul emanating from these guys…” – BUZZFEED

Monster Truck is a monster of an EP, abrupt, insubordinate, potent, overwhelming, and cruelly superior. And oh, so good! – TATTOO

Brother O’ Brother is a 2-piece garage blues-rock band known for their rowdy live performances. Guitarist Chris also runs the local label Romanus Records, experimenting with custom vinyl releases. They’ve opened for AWOLNATION, played at both of Jack White’s famed Third Man Records – Jack Daniels: Local Bands You Should Be Listening To

Hailing from Indianapolis, Chris Banta and Warner Swopes of Brother O’ Brother deal in raw, rootsy blues rock that has an almost religious fervor. -IMPOSE

Best Local Rock Artist/Group Indianapolis: You definitely, definitely love Brother O' Brother, the rock n roll duo who drop of ton of vinyl, win prestigious awards like the Battle of Birdys, are regulars on bills all over town, are a favorite of our Barfly, & more. Like the Black Keys? You'll dig Brother O' Brother. Hate the Black Keys? You'll probably still dig the, this band is just that good. - NUVO
