For those unfamiliar with the Hudson Valley blues scene, it can be surprising that the region has been home to such renowned blues talent as Bill Perry, Popa Chubby, Murali Coryell and Little Sammy Davis, among others. But it was under the tutelage of these master bluesmen that Dan Brother began his guitar-playing and singing career. Since his teens, Dan Brother has been performing in venerable blues clubs throughout the region. Having shared the stage with mentors like his, it’s no wonder Dan picked up a little of everything along the way – from protest-era psychedelia to straight-up blues; classic era soul to southern rock and Texas twang.

Having turned all that early on-stage learning into a sound all his own, Dan’s high-energy performances are drawing fans new and old to an increasing number of gigs and venues every month. Dan’s fans expect a mix of blues, soul, rock & roll, and the band accommodates, with sets that go from low-down monstrous slow blues to booty-grooving ecstatic funk.

If you love blues music, then you will really love what Chris Raabe brings to the stage with his own unique flair. Some may say it’s a lost cause trying to make blues relevant with the younger crowd; that older music falls upon deaf ears; that it only appeals to more seasoned crowd. The stronger belief is that this genre will live on because of, and through our youth; that they will ultimately search for something more than what is played over and over (and over…) on the radio. What is most rewarding to Chris is getting through to the ones who appreciate the music for what it is - and for the emotion it evokes.

One of his main influences in the beginning, and still to this day, is Angus Young of AC/DC, a classic rock band that started out on the bluesier side of rock. Over the following years, Chris was in several bands playing everything from heavy metal to rock and many styles in between. As he matured, so did his taste in music. He was now drawing inspiration from blues greats such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton & Stevie Ray Vaughn. Since Chris started playing, he has continued to pursue his great passion as a musician and a writer.

Chris has been part of the Hudson valley music scene for several years now. He has had the privilege of jamming with blues legends like Bill Perry, Popa Chubby, Slam Allen and others. He also had the pleasure of warming the stage for the late, great Leon Russell at the Towne Crier.
