Coffeehouse to welcome experienced performing trio

March 23, 2014 by  

Next weekend, The Elderly Brothers will be performing at the Stone Church Coffeehouse at the First Congregational Church in Bristol, Rhode Island – across the Mount Hope Bay from Fall River.

Most likely, the Coffeehouse is using flyer printing and poster printing to let those in the area become aware of this performance in a venue that’s family-oriented and accessible for the handicapped.

The Elderly Brothers come from Newport, Rhode Island and have been together for 25 years. Harry Spring, Jack Casey, and Bill Thomas started the group as an occasional musical hobby and they were joined in 2007 by bassist Mark Gorman and later by Ed Ledwith as lead guitar and vocals. They have now become one of the most popular acts in the area. Their lighthearted stage antics and tight three-part harmonies entertain local audiences.

Their music takes inspiration from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s and they add some current tunes as well. Songs of the Everly Brothers, Crosby Stills and Nash, Roy Orbison, The Beatles, and Neil Young make up some of their repertoire.

Jack Casey, keyboardist and vocalist, commented that the name of the group helps to market them, and gives the audience an immediate idea of what the group sounds like.

The event will take place on Saturday, March 29, at 7:30 pm, with doors opening at 6:45 p.m.
