The Avett Brothers are a folk-rock band from Concord, North Carolina. The band is made up of two brothers, Scott Avett and Seth Avett, who play the banjo and guitar respectively, and Bob Crawford who plays the stand-up bass. They are often joined on tour by cellist Joe Kwon. Risen from the ashes of Seth and Scott's former rock band Nemo, the Avett Brothers combine bluegrass, country, punk, pop melodies, folk, rock and roll, honky tonk, and ragtime to produce a sound described by the San Francisco Chronicle as having the "heavy sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the light pop concision of Buddy Holly, the tuneful jangle of the Beatles, the raw energy of the Ramones." The group itself eschews labels, feeling that "none would do the music the justice. It's simply left up to each person to extract his or her own account from the Avetts' music."Content: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Avett_Brothers
This was the first time that i have had the pleasure to see the Avett brothers live. Such an outstanding show from the first song through the encore. The band is so incrediably tight and in tune with one another, so much skill and inovation in thier music. They truly are an all american band!
Awesome as always, so full of energy, you just can not get enough. Much better sound in this theater than in the Fox Theater in Oakland the previous night, which was too loud and distorted. The band always gives their all. Hope that they keep enjoying what they are doing and come around again and again.
