The Chili Brothers
It’s Now Officially Mardi Gras Season – ALL YEAR ‘ROUND!
From the New England music scene come five veteran musicians dedicated to the fine art of “Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler”.
“Let the Good Times Roll” is what an evening with the Chili Brothers is all about.
Their idea of a good time includes:·
• Groovinated favorites from artists like The Neville Brothers, Dr. John, The Band, The Meters, Professor Longhair, Lee Dorsey, et. al.
• Funkified interpretations of classic jazz and blues standards to fire up your suppressed inner mojo
• Origilicious tunes straight from the Brothers’ subconcience that will knock you out, wake you up, then knock you out again!
Separately the “NEW” Brothers have sanctified the muse with Tom “Bones” Malone of the CBS Orchestra (David Letterman’s house band); Rick Danko, Levon Helm, and other former members of The Band; Dr. John; Toni Lynn Washington; Hot Tuna; the Jerry Portnoy All-Star Band; Stones keyboardist Chuck Leavell; jazz legend Alan Dawson; the Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra; the Santo Christo Portuguese Marching Band – even a CLOWN BAND for criminy’s sake!
As a band the Chili Brothers have performerated in countless venues in New England, New York, Canada, and Europe. From the famous Lone Star Café in NYC, to the Wetlands in Soho; from the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto, to Joyous Lake in Woodstock; on these and many other stages the Brothers have left their trademark scorch pattern. The Brothers de Chili have been featured at the famed Kinsale Fringe Festival in Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland for the last four years runninThe Chili Brothers are:
