The Morrison Brothers Band
The Morrison Brothers Band are hometown heroes when it comes to country rock. Since brothers Willie and Truman Morrison got the band started back in 2008, they've released three full-length albums, and conquered every premier venue in the capital city. In July, they returned to the 9:30 Club, ranked #1 on Rolling Stone's list of "The Best Big Rooms in America," to premiere their latest album, "State of the Union." The album's first single "Little Miss Whiskey" is receiving extensive air-play on DC's top country station, WMZQ 98.7 FM.
Pants Velour originated at Cornell University before relocating to New York City. The band fuses hip hop, rock, and soul sensibilities to form a sound that has been likened to the Beastie Boys, The Roots, and Black Eyed Peas, or in the words of the Washington City Paper, "party-ready hip-hop." The sharp lyrics, catchy melodies and sophisticated arrangements give the music a feeling that is distinctly its own and makes for a dynamic and energetic live show that keeps people coming back for more.
The band has headlined many respected venues across the Northeast, as well as opening for artists such as Anti-Pop Consortium and Talib Kweli. PV is...emcee Josh Raff, vocalist Niki Darling, hype-man Eli Northrup, guitarist Sam Coe, drummer Rajiv Ravishankar, bassist Larry Zipf, and keyboardist Jordan Battiste.
After forming in the summer in 2004, Flow Tribe started to come together and live shows soon followed. Following the dual adversities of Hurricane Katrina and drummer Russel Olschner's deployment to Iraq, the Tribe regrouped in 2006 to growing popularity and local acclaim. In 2009 Flow Tribe was selected by the reader's of Gambit Weekly as the #3 Best New Local Band. Constant touring throughout the Southeast earned Flow Tribe the reputation as one of the hardest working bands with the most high energy live show. From New Orleans to the slopes of Colorado and everywhere in between, Flow Tribe brings the funk each and every time. We make backbone cracking music, plain and simple.
