Neighbor: What’s Good in the Neighborhood, Part Two

We were thrilled to meet our new Neighbor at Suwannee Hulaween. We said:

Neighbor, one of the skyrocketing “new” jam quartets, were killing at The Campground. The vocals were excellent, and their psychedelic rock game was tight. They played an interesting tune built on “Loose Lucy” and rocked non-stop. Somebody called a request, and out came “Two Tickets to Paradise”! Which they nailed! Neighbor shut the set down with a shitkicker rave-up called “Trippin’ in the Van.” (“Bed”?)

Neighbor was formed when Richard James (vocals, keyboards) of Pink Talking Fish and his childhood neighbor Lyle Brewer (guitar) began playing music together. The quartet’s dynamite rhythm section features by Dan Kelly (bass) and Dean Johnston (drums, The New Motif).


Neighbor return to action  supporting Twiddle for four shows in December. From there, they make a southern swing including an appearance at North Beach Music Festival. They play Sony Hall December 30 to put the wraps on 2022.

The quartet come out swinging in January with six shows, two supporting Umphrey’s McGee and a three-night stand at Nectar’s. And their festival dance card is beginning to fill up, scheduled so far at Backwoods at Mulberry Mountain, Rooster Walk Music & Arts Festival, and Floydfest.

Lots more to come!

“Won’t you please, won’t you please?

Please, won’t you be my neighbor?”
