Grab Brothers Band
The Grab Brothers Band hails from the musical hotbed of Boston/Cape Cod.
Original Quartet (Acoustic & Rock).
A powerful 4-piece rock and roll outfit with an equally potent penchant for hook-laden rockers, and riveting excitement to their most infectious ballads. There is a vital chemistry at the core of their gutsy musical style. It encompasses an intriguing blend of a Jethro Tullish celtic taste as well as a hard driving Metallica old school, raw down and dirty rock-n roll! "These guys not only have the ability to give you hard driving no-nonsense rock, but also can slow the pace to eloquently strum a few acoustic gems! And when the brothers sing together, their vocal harmonies are just amazing!"
