Downtown and the Feelers assembled in 2003 by four guys who were playing together in a cover band but wanted to play all original music. Since then the band has put together an impressive list of original music, which have been influenced by rockabilly, traditional rock and blues. They write about life, old relationships, new relationships, and about love in different circumstances. The band has been performing between Sacramento and Redding for the past 5 years, where they play new songs with a familiar groove.
Downtown Ricky Brown, although hearing impaired, plays a dynamic and soulful lead guitar. Blueroad Bob does most of the writing and vocals and plays a mean rhythm guitar. Killaking Curtiss Johnson plays bass for the band but is an accomplished drummer and guitar player as well. He sold his cow to buy his first guitar. Tim “The Pocket” Marcum, the drummer, has been banging away since he was nine, when he set on a gig featuring Wanda Jackson, one of the Queens of Rockabilly, at Panther Hall in Ft Worth, Texas.
The band has a web page at https://www.tradebit.com. They are also featured at https://www.tradebit.com where their song “In God We Trust” held the number one position for six weeks in the Blues genre. The band has finished production of a new CD, Strange Things Happen, to be released late 2008.
