Village Take the Stage at Downtown Summer Nights on June 27th
Village (a.k.a. The Village Musicians) is a three-piece band made up of three brothers and a drummer. They have been performing together for over just over four years and in that time completed four full album releases and have toured internationally. Things aren't slowing down for the guys either as they have recently recorded a new EP in Hollywood, CA with producer Warren Huart of The Fray, Howie Day, and Aerosmith fame (just to name a few) entitled, "Dear Destiny EP" which has only been released digitally. Warren says of Village:
"The Village Musician's are a genuine band of Brothers. The band features 3 teenage brothers and a best friend, they are the perfect antidote to the slick, soulless music that is spoon fed to the kids of America. Not a Product of Media Moguls, this band of easy going, honest, hardworking musicians all sing, write all their own songs and play all their instruments. A breath of fresh air in an auto tuned nightmare of teenage puppets! The Village Musician's are career artists and they're just beginning their journey, expect greatness from them!"
They're music tastefully flows between funk, rock, reggae, and folk as the band continually pushes the envelope of their musical creativity and works hard to keep things exciting. R-Dub Big Beats (the oldest brother on the band) and Rob Gnarly (the second oldest) are both songwriters and lead vocalists for the group. Gnarly contributes the introspective and folk-reggae style, R-Dub the rock and roll. Sometimes working co-op and other times individually on their songs, which adds another dimension to the sound of the band. They have toured extensively in the NW and have ventured down as far as Hollywood, CA. The band has also traveled to Lima, Peru and toured through out the Peru nation. Needless to say, they are young, passionate and ready to press into the full career that stares them in the face.
