The Brother Comatose

SEE EVENT DETAILS
at Moe's Alley (see times)
Moe's Alley welcomes back The Brothers Comatose for a Saturday night of live Bluegrass, Americana and Roots music. Don't miss one of the hottest in the Bay Area for this special intimate show. The original members of the quintet with brothers Alex and Ben Morrison, bonded at the Morrison family acoustic music parties before taking a youthful foray into punk and rock bands and ultimately before circling back to the music they learned in that living room. They credit both beginnings for the attitude of their current music. and As a testament to their skillful energy; they have already played the major festivals including the esteemed Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, The Strawberry Festival and High Sierra.

As for the name, only a brother could pick it out by observing his sibling. Guitarist and vocalist Ben said when brother Alex Morrison goes into a trance-like state while playing his banjo. It's certainly not indicative of their music, which doesn't have any of the indulgent noodling breaks characterized by other string based bands -- though the musicianship is solidly there, it's given with a communal and inclusive spirit to sing and dance along to. Now, at live shows, the San Francisco band is known for handing out chopsticks to the audience for participatory percussion on whatever surface is closest.
