4/8/2014, 3:18 p.m.
The Holmes Brother, legendary performers known for their non-stop touring and bringing audiences to their feet night after night will perform at Gypsy Sally's in Washington D.C. on April 11. The band’s new Alligator Records album, Brotherhood, which dropped April 1, is another stellar chapter in The Holmes Brothers’ storied and still-evolving history.
For 35 years, The Holmes Brothers’ joyous and moving blend of blues, gospel, soul, R&B, rock ‘n’ roll and country has been captivating audiences around the world. Originally from Christchurch, Virginia, the trio's spine-tingling three-part harmony singing, blues-soaked guitar solos and church-inspired piano playing expertly blends Saturday night’s roadhouse rock and blues with the gospel passion of a Sunday morning service.
Rolling Stone says The Holmes Brothers play “impressive, fervent country soul.” From winning multiple Blues Music Awards to sharing stages and recordings with Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, Joan Osborne, Willie Nelson, Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel, Merle Haggard, Al Green, Ben Harper, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, Levon Helm, Rosanne Cash, Odetta, Marc Cohn and The Jungle Brothers, The Holmes Brothers have seemingly done it all. USA Today says that band is “glorious...full of soul and surprises.” The New York Times declares The Holmes Brothers “deeply soulful, uplifting and timeless.”
