Brent Berry
Bio : While kicking a bass drum, playing a guitar, blowing a harp and singing or shouting about love and war. Songs about old ships and giving to much to the oars, street lights and snowy nights. Switching styles and language's as the night people give up their colors. "Some roads you just gotta strut down." The Brent Berry Band combines folk, reggae, bluegrass, blues and Latin music into one whirlwind, genre-defying show after another. It's a copious buffet for the ears, and it's made by an equally nontraditional instrumental line-up. The group features a kick drum; a mandolin; percussion; bass; and native son Berry's pulsing, rhythmic classical guitar lines. Using these tools, the group moves gracefully from a Toots cover to a grooving Cuban version of "Guantanamera." Somehow, it all holds together beautifully. "All of the music we play is roots music," "It just comes from different geographies." Still, it takes a certain degree of skill to whip it all together while whipping crowds into a frenzy. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- From Lawrence, Kansas to Long Island, New York, St.John,Virgin Islands to Taos, New Mexico ,the lovely streets of Amsterdam and Cadiz .
