CBGBs meet the Grand Ole Opry. Hailing form New York, the six-man, one-woman band blends bluegrass, country, rockabilly, and a sucker punch of punk for a rubber-meets-the-road roots sound. Many of their songs tow a thin line between serious and satire. But dont let irreverence fool you. These accomplished musicians create artistic arrangements that feature harmonies worthy of Gram and Emmylou, and a virtuosic chicken-pickin guitar that belies their geographic origin.

THE BROTHER BROTHERS (ADAM AND DAVID MOSS)
Rich harmonies and thoughtful songs accompanied by guitar, cello, violin and banjo as only a group like the Brother Brothers can offer. Already established players and composers in a wide spectrum of genres throughout the NY musical circuit, they are finally teaming up to bring their individual experiences together.
Brooklyn based fiddler and songster Adam Moss musical career can most easily be characterized by the variance of his influence. Adam loves and plays in the Klezmer, Bluegrass, Old-time and swing traditions which lends itself to a very unique and innovative style in performance setting. He is actively touring with Bostons Session Americana, Brooklyns The Defibulators, Ana Egge, and has formerly toured with Anais Mitchells Hadestown, and Texas 3 Redneck Tenors.
I dont know how you can put this on your website and make it look complimentary.
Adam Moss, regarding a not so complimentary New York Times review about David (2015)
When David Moss sings you his songs he rips your heart out, throws it on the ground and stomps on it, then picks it up and gently places it back in your chest...then he punches you.

MORE on the Defibulators
Described as everything from Hee-Haw on mescaline to Carter Family-meets-Ramones, The Defibulators unique brand of country has made them pioneers in the Brooklyn country music scene.
The band is currently touring on the heels of their latest LP release, Debtll Getem. Co-produced with Brian Bender (Langhorne Slim, Jose James). The album is a striking, au courant take on classic country, channeling the frenetic energy of their legendary live shows into tight, punchy hooks and foot-stomping sing-alongs.
From Pay For That Money, a pedal steel and fiddle lament about debt, to Let Me See That Ponytail Run, a dreamy ode to beauty just out of reach, the album is full of gorgeous harmonies and razor-sharp wit. Everybodys Got a Banjo is a biting, swamp funk-inspired nod to the instruments recent ubiquity (If you dont know how to play it, well it still looks cool), and Cackalacky is the tongue-in-cheek story of an Appalachian musician who moves to New York City to make it big in roots music.
The bands infectious energy and originality earned them a nod as one of Brooklyns best emerging bands in VICE Magazine, and a devoted following in a city not known for its love of country. Its fun to play for people who dont think they like country music, says singer Erin Bru. Guitarist/singer/songwriter Bug Jennings agrees, adding, Theres something about the fast-paced, frantic, neurotic energy of New York that fuels our sound.
