Additional Info:
Them Vibes’ roots run deep through the veritable ground of music; influences ranging from the gritty rock of The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin, the rhythmic sway of The Black Crowes and Tom Petty, and the intimate harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel and The Band. The songs themselves vary from the ballistic to the intimate, but throughout, runs a through-line of raw, unapologetic honesty. Currently residing in East Nashville, Them Vibes are doing what they love most; playing live and letting the music do the talking. You can probably find the songwriters, Alex Haddad and Larry Florman (Brother Love) by the bar somewhere. Have a drink with them, ease back, let yourself go, and take a ride with Them Vibes.


The Mulligan Brothers are: Ross Newell (lead vocals, guitar); Gram Rea (fiddle, mandolin, viola, harmonica and vocals); Ben Leininger (bass and vocals) and Greg DeLuca (drums and vocals). Via Portland is the second album for the band from Mobile and Baton Rouge that took a name that means second chances. When we made the first album, The Mulligan Brothers, we didn't know we were making an album people would be so passionate about or that we would be so proud of, Via Portland has been equally well received, debuting at #18 on I-Tunes singer songwriter chart, reaching #7 on the Relix/Jambands chart , #12 on Roots Music Report Alt. Folk Chart and making the Alternate Roots Top 50 Albums for the first half of 2015.


Armed with a violin, acoustic guitar, drums and an upright bass fashioned from two old suitcases, the Mulligan Brothers, a quartet from Mobile, Ala., stand dead center at the crossroads generally defined as Americana, the music is a blend of Folk Rock and Alt. country. The easy Americana flow of music uses traditional textures without falling into a fake rootsiness, balanced against lyrics that are often sharply contemporary, The Mulligan Brothers gently weave heartfelt tales of love and loss into a complex yet comforting combination that will leave you nostalgic for something (or someone) that you can’t quite put your finger on. With a remarkable universality, the band’s self-titled debut album features songs that you could as easily imagine spilling from the mouth of a storied, laugh-lined old man as his teenage grandson grieving his first heartbreak. The Mulligan Brothers sing and play about where they’ve been in a way that makes us all realize we’ve been there, too.


They have performed at festivals across the country including two appearances at New Orleans Jazz Fest and have been invited to perform at the renowned 30A Songwriter Festival in Florida in 2016, followed by a string of dates in Ireland, The Netherlands and Belgium.
