Returning to Thomson in 2020 will be the Bros Landreth. This newest version of the combo, led by Canadians Joey Landreth on guitar and his brother David Landreth on bass, is out touring behind a new disc, “87”. They opened our show a few years back in trio format and we’re excited for them to return. An early Rolling Stone review praised the band’s “quiet storm of slide guitar solos, blue notes, three-part harmonies.” Additionally, one of their lifelong musical heroes, Bonnie Raitt, was equally impressed after hearing a set from one of the early versions of the band, saying “I haven’t liked a band as much as The Bros. Landreth in a long time. To hear this kind of funky, southern style rock played with such originality and soul will knock you out.”
We’ve had the Joey Landreth Trio and last year we had Ariel Posen, who played in the early version of the band. To get the Bros Landreth on our bill…well, come hear ‘em on May 2 and we’re sure you’ll see what we are excited about.
