Mix MC5 with early Black Keys and you’ve got it. B.O.B. has toured to the tune of nearly 300 dates in the last 3 years, received critical acclaim, played both Third Man Records locations, & pumped out more vinyl than one can imagine in the last few years on 6 different labels. Brother O’ Brother released their new EP “Monster Truck” on Romanus Records in 2018. They are working on dem new tracks for 2020. 


“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.
