November Rain Guns N' Roses joins the ranks of many rock bands that "simply vanished" at the pinnacle of their careers. November Rain began with the thought of filling the huge vacuum that still remains years after GNR's breakup. November Rain meticulously recreates every visual and musical nuance of the Guns N' Roses experience. Each and every November Rain show is a sensory overload of the music, power, and energy of Guns N' Roses.
Shut Down Brown Shut Down Brown bridges the gap between classic 90's R&B and its predecessor, 70's soul. They are a live funk band with big horns and tons of energy. Rarely is there a show played where the funk-step isn't organically busted out by the band, the crowd or both. They thrive on the raunchy grooves that make ya move. They take after The Greats with copious improvisation and on-stage communication. "Big time, Good time" is their all-in-one motto, mission and mentality.
