During the past few weeks, Brothers Past has been performing at some of the biggest festivals in the country. In many ways, our set at Bonnaroo Music Festival last Sunday marked a high point for us. It was absolutely exhilarating to watch the size of the audience swell with each passing song, until the field in front of us was teeming with people. So if you were there, if you were watching at home, or if you've tracked down a copy of the webcast of our set, thanks for listening!
After years of performing together, the band will be undergoing a metamorphosis this summer. Our drummer, Rick Lowenberg, has always been interested in law and environmental activism, and the time has finally come for him to pursue his other ambitions. We hope he finds success in his chosen career, and we know that ultimately he will go on to help make the world a better place to live in. Thank you, Rick, for the wonderful years you devoted to the band.
There are two shows remaining under the band's current lineup. On Friday, June 23, the band sets sail on the Big F'ing Boat IV in NYC for our only full two-set performance of the summer. Tickets are still available, but going fast. This will obviously be a historic show. We are also pleased to announce another big show to end the first half of 2006. On Wednesday, June 28, Brothers Past will open for the Dave Matthews Band on the second stage, at the Tweeter Center in Camden, NJ. Our set begins when the doors open at 6 PM, and it will run approximately an hour. Gomez will follow, before the headliner, on the main stage.
July begins a new era for the band and we are very excited about the future. On July 13, at All Good Festival, Ilya Stemkovsky will make his debut as Brothers Past's new drummer. The band is thrilled about finding a player of his caliber and commitment available. Ilya is a well-accomplished, powerful drummer, who was the driving force behind the OM Trio. He's been hard at work learning the band's music, and after playing with him, there is plenty of reason for optimism and the chemistry was apparent. All Good promises to be an evening to ring in the new, and there is more in store. In keeping with the spirit of the night, we will be performing a second, specially-themed Radiohead/Pink Floyd set, in between performances of Radiodread and Dub Side of the Moon. We look forward to seeing all our friends and fans there on this exciting night.
