The BBQ BROS make original music without taking themselves too seriously. With influences from Johnny Cash to REM, the Beatles and Wilco, some call their sound dusty-road, jangle rock. It's vintage rock with a modern spirit. Upbeat, relaxed and gritty, they're perfect for a backyard party or club.


The BBQ BROS make original music without taking themselves too seriously. Drawing on artists from Johnny Cash to REM and
Wilco, they've created a sound that some describe as "dusty-road, jangle rock." In other words, it has the fire and drive of vintage rock'n'roll matched with the creative spirit of a progressive band. Upbeat yet relaxed, humble yet gritty, the BBQ BROS are the perfect band for a backyard party or the club stage.

Home based in Charleston, SC, the BBQ BROS are accustomed to audiences who love live music. The band reciprocates in kind with a high energy show full of movement and crowd interaction.

Veterans of the Charleston music scene, band members have toured nationally playing in SQZZBXX, Grayman, the Dellortos, Book of Lies, and as solo artists.


CDs by members of the BBQ BROS. include:
