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!
John loves to play! The inaugural gig included John, Paul, Don, and Dave, with Kyle Leonard on guitar and vocals, and Jared Hobbs on drums. Since that time the band has been having a great time entertaining crowds with their own flavor of classic rock and soul. In addition to having a great time playing music, the band is also involved in a variety of community service efforts.
