A live BR show can be like a trip to a smoky honky-tonk, where the beer is cold, the neon lights are bright and the music digs deep into the roots of country and western. With the April 4 release of Coast to Coast, the band's fans will be able to take that experience home with them via a live project recorded last summer while the band was on tour with the Brian Setzer Orchestra.
We're still out there humping the road, coming to your town and making sure the party is there. BR are well known for having a vibrant live show. The band is almost single-handedly credited with reviving Sad But True - Apocalyptica - Apocalyptica waning Lower Broadway music scene with a series of performances at Robert's Western Wear, a combination western-wear store and bar Even If Its Wrong - BR5-49* - Coast To Coast Live served as BR's home before they signed with Arista.
Since then, the group has released a self-titled sophomore recording and their third album, Big Backyard Beat Show. It's BR, which is dirty, edgy and raw, which is what we love. The songs were recorded in a variety of venues during the Setzer tour.
After honing its skills at Robert's and then taking its act cross-country in support of its Arista projects, Mead says the band's musicianship has improved. BR will be hitting the road again this spring and summer with promotional backing from a famed distillery. Though life on the road has dominated BR's career, they performed at Robert's several times while they were recently in town.
