Brandon Tarricone
New Orleans funksters Brotherhood Of Groove are back on the scene with their hottest national tour yet, featuring some of the country's heaviest hitters. The Brotherhood of Groove's brand of funk, jazz, rock, and reggae has earned them popular acclaim within the competitive New Orleans music scene, as well as throughout the country. Most recently, the band was nominated with Galactic and Papa Grows Funk for "Best Funk Band in New Orleans" by Gambit Weekly magazine and the Big Easy Awards foundation. Offbeat Magazine honored the band with their award for 2002 "Best Emerging Funk/R&B/Soul Band in New Orleans." The bands album Pocket Full of Funk was rated in the "top 10 Louisiana releases of 2002" by Gambit weekly, New Orleans, LA. Their high energy and extreme grooves continue to find new fans as founder Brandon Tarricone ( Top 10 Guitarists of 2001) brings another group of talented musicians on the road.

This round will feature a few new cats that have been made part of the family. The phenomenal alto saxophonist Sam Kininger, known for performing with Soulive and Lettuce, will be leading the horn section, along with Geoff Vidal on tenor and flute. Special guest tenor man John Stuart from The Motet will be joining the band for the Denver, CO show. The new BOG rhythm section is simply mind blowing: John Massing on the funkiest drums to hit the Rockies and Stewart McKinsley on eight, and ten-string fretted and fretless basses have been pushing Tarricone's virtuoso guitar playing to new heights. The tour will wind through the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana over 20 nights. This is the BOG tour you don't want to miss, so come on and check it out.
