From Weddings  to backyard barbeques

Bob’s Brother’s Band started inconspicuously in August of 2004. While planning for the Avon Corn Festival, someone mentioned that Bob’s brother had a band that could fill one of the slots at the festival. That left it up to John Barrett (Bob’s brother) to gather some musicians and play at the festival. John didn’t let little things like not actually having a band from preventing him from taking the gig! Learn More

From a Community Fundraiser

WOW!!! We loved every minute of Saturday evening, Feb. 5th Bob’s Brother’s Band performing for our fundraiser for the Geneseo Teresa House Comfort Care Home. 185 people danced the night away for a great cause… we could not have done it without you… THANK YOU, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! Your generous, high spirits are contagious… until next year, same time, same place… With Best Regards, Kate Kingsley and all your friends at the Teresa House

From a Wedding

Nick and I wanted to thank you personally and your band for the most PERFECT wedding that we ever could have imagined – it was absolutely wonderful and we owe it all to you and the band! The music was phenomenal and we will truly treasure these memories for a lifetime. Thank you for making our wedding day complete, it was a dream come true!! Best regards, Abby

From a Summer Festival

Pure Joy! Amazing food, totally sated without gastronomic overload. Perfect weather- 70’s, breeze, distant storm brewing- excellent! After dinner, many delicious treats in the tasting room. Then- to my surprise and utter delight- the band that performed whilst we sipped our Jammin Red was AMAZING!!! Started with seriously Old WHO music- Substitute, Can’t Explain, and ended with Uptown Funk! Best part? TOTALLY nailed all of it! Wow! If this is what I work for all year, I shall joyfully keep working! Lisa Michelle Waters Commenting on Glenora Wine Cellar’s 2016 Leaves and Lobster event
