The New Yorker: Listening Booth: The Alvin Brothers Dave and Phil Alvin, late of the band the Blasters and longtime mainstays of an American roots-rock scene that absorbs elements of rock, folk, country, and blues, have always had a contentious relationship. Dave’s departure from the band, in the mid-eighties, ushered in a period in which the two brothers kept their distance from each other; Dave pursued a solo career while Phil occasionally reformed the Blasters. Last year, the brothers reunited to record material for “Ghost Brothers of Darkland County,” a musical project masterminded by Stephen King, John Mellencamp, and T-Bone Burnett. And now they have extended the revived partnership with an entire album, “Common Ground: Dave Alvin + Phil Alvin Play and Sing the Songs of Big Bill Broonzy” (YepRoc).

DDave Alvin and Phil Alvin earned a GRAMMY® nomination for Best Blues album yesterday for their widely acclaimed Common Ground: Dave Alvin + Phil Alvin Play And Sing The Songs Of Big Bill Broonzy. Their first album together in 30 years, “the brothers shine” (New Yorker) on Common Ground: Dave Alvin + Phil Alvin Play and Sing The Songs Of Big Bill Broonzy, which heralded high praise from press including, “rare and special” (Hollywood Reporter), “blew our minds” (Wired), “A joyous, loving tribute” (Electronic Musician), “Akin to Dylan on steroids” (Uncut).

Friends of Bob is a not-for-profit cooperative that brings great music to Lafayette. Please consider becoming a dues-paying Friend of Bob

2014 dues are $10, though if you 'd like to donate more, that would be great. (Since we are a registered 501 [c][3] organization, donations above the $10 level can be tax-deductible.) Before each show, we publish a newsletter giving background information -- membership dues pay for the printing and mailing of these newsletters. Plus, our affordable admission prices in small venues sometimes fail to cover expenses, so membership contributions provide us with a safety net for such occasions. Friends of Bob is a not-for-profit all-volunteer organization that works to bring outstanding live music to Lafayette. A membership form can be found by clicking on the How Can You Help button at the top of this page.

Please support this cooperative effort to bring fine music to Lafayette.
Friends of Bob -
bringing great music to small venues, for early shows at affordable prices.
