Some A$$-Kickin’ Rock from Travers Brothership
If you’re looking for an excellent mix of funk, rock, soul, and blues, look no further than the Asheville quartet Travers Brothership. These men have been out playing for years, and yet somehow twin brothers Kyle and Eric Travers are only 25. They really shook the (figurative) house at Suwannee Hulaween with their dynamic set:
I had intended to get to Flying Lotus, but I was truly knocked out by Travers Brothership, the Asheville quartet anchored by twins Kyle and Eric Travers. It was Kyle’s prowess on guitar that jolted the crowd packed around the Campground Stage as they worked through songs from new album Let the World Decide, slow blues, an Isley Brothers cover (“It’s Your Thing”), and one wicked instrumental that began with a shortcut to the “Soul Sacrifice” drum solo and then emerged as a tremendous “Stratus.”
They have a few more dates on their extensive fall tour, starting tonight, December 4, at the Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte with The Main Squeeze. The two bands will pair on shows through Saturday. There are three more shows on the fall run, including the Holidaze for Habitat show at The Orange Peel.
After the new year, they will head to the Northeast for shows in New York, Massachusetts, and D.C. Their Valentine’s Day show and the following night at The Pour House Music Hall & Record Shop in Raleigh will be a live album recording. And they just were added to the lineup for Electric Forest in June!
Travers Brothership are: Kyle Travers, guitar, keyboards, vocals; Eric Travers, drums, harmonica, vocals; Ian McIsaac, keyboards, percussion; and Josh Clark, bass, vocals.
