7/30/2012 9:03:00 AM Boston band The Brew to perform at Sound Bites Grill
Since their inception, the members of The Brew have shared a common vision: transforming their urgent and unapologetically artistic musings into song. As childhood friends from Boston in their mid-20s, they have traveled afar singing of romance and tragedy with their haunting
and original voices.
You can see this up and coming band at Sound Bites Grill on Saturday Aug. 3, 8-11 p.m.
True musketeers in their friendship- Kelly Kane, Chris Plante, David Drouin,and Joe Plante- bring their passionate and full-hearted performances night after night, with a fierce sense of family. Together they create a purely original sound that marries the majesty of Queen with the nuance of Steely Dan, as their unbridled energy pulls more and more listeners into their world of songs.
The Brew, hailing from the Massachusetts North Shore suburb of Amesbury, exemplifies the youthful exuberance of a group of teens coming together to play music. The quartet consists of Chris and Joe Plante (keyboards/lead vocals bass), Dave Drouin (guitar) and Kelly Kane (drummer.
With each release, the music of The Brew gets sharper, stronger and more pure,
with an increasing emphasis on their burning and poignant lyrics. An honest music from
a band concerned with real expression. Their success continues to build, hitting one benchmark after another while remaining humble and unified. They are quickly grabbing the ears of heavyweights in the music industry and listeners alike as they traverse the world on a mission.
With three CDs already recorded, the quartet has now released Electric Opera, a concert DVD recorded at Portsmouth Music Hall. The high-definition cameras provide rich, crisp footage while the matrix audio recording boasts a loud, clear sound. Highlights include the upbeat, piano laced melody of "Chance Reaching," the more progressive rocker "Slipping Through The City"-which features eloquent vocals and blazing, wailing guitar solos-and the gorgeous yet heartbreaking dirge "Poison Stone." Electric Opera brings the concert experience of this young but well fermented band home and offers a grand introduction for those not yet familiar to this frothy, progressive rock quartet.
The Brew has blossomed into one of the Northeast's finest improvisational rock groups over the past few years.
