Whether traveling to gigs on horseback or by tour bus, Americana mavens The Brothers Comatose forge their own path with raucous West Coast renderings of traditional bluegrass, country and rock ‘n’ roll music. The five-piece string band is anything but a traditional acoustic outfit with their fierce musicianship and rowdy, rock concert-like shows.

The Brothers Comatose is comprised of brothers Ben Morrison (guitar, vocals) and Alex Morrison (banjo, vocals), Steve Height (bass, vocals), Philip Brezina (violin), and Greg Fleischut (mandolin). When they’re not headlining The Fillmore for a sold-out show or appearing at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, the band is out on the road performing across America, Canada, Australia, and hosting their very own music festival, Comatopia, in the Sierra foothills.

April of this year is finding the band touring Latvia and Lithuania as cultural ambassadors for American Music Abroad, which is run by the US State Department with the goal of sending American artists all over the world as a cultural exchange program. The band toured China in 2018 under the same program.

Based in Los Angeles, this old-timey punk rock revivalist band goes by the name of Water Tower. They  released their debut album “Fly Around” on March 27, 2020.

This is the sixth album for founder Kenny Feinstein, but the first since kicking the bucket (band was formally Water Tower Bucket Boys). The album is a ten-track collection of songs rooted in bluegrass and folk, indie rock and a dash of electronic landscaping. This album represents a transition for Feinstein and the re-birth of the band in its neighborhood of Echo Park in Los Angeles. The new album manages to blend psychedelic and punk influences weaved into their traditional love of Bluegrass and Americana instruments, creating their mixed bag of branded music.

Feinstein has teamed up with Joe "Juice" Berglund and Tommy Drinkard and Jesse Blue Eads as the formal tour line-up. They each play multiple instruments (fiddle, banjo, guitar, lap steel). They all share the same amount of passion for traditional bluegrass as well as punk and indie music.

You can find them performing at festivals with multiple sets of old time bluegrass like songs like that of Flatts & Scruggs, Dr. Ralph Stanley, Bill Monroe or the Carter Family. (Huck Finn Jubilee 2022, Topanga Banjo Fiddle Fest 2022, Picking in the Pines 2022) Then again you catch them at a local pub performing their versions of the Germs, Rancid and Lou Reed Songs. You will however, always get some Water Tower originals which are fan favorites and you'll hear what is "coined" as Feinstein's song-crafting, that music that keeps fans coming back for more.
