Brother Bagman

Brother Bagman

 Kansas City, Missouri, USA

"It's unusual to find a freshman group with this focus, especially when influences too often keep aspiring artists from spreading their own wings - but these brothers apparently know their bag, man." --John Kreicbergs, The Pitch, KC, MO Groove heavy, funky, rock and roll that is easy to dance to.


Brother Bagman is Kansas City's current representative for original, feel-good, groove-driven soul rock. 2013 starts with the release of the groups third full-length album, "Scenic Route". The head swayin' groove that was apparent in their first recordings has grown another grin with age and experience, loosening and tightening in just the right places. Strollin' and struttin' on top of the groove is the southern rock soul of Landon Leist's smooth, growling voice.His heavy, rich electric guitar playing combines to lock the audience into a place of understanding and appreciation. The Rythym section pairs bass player Cliff Moore and Drummer Cole Harvey for an "air-tight" foundation. Last, but definetly not least, Damon Parker joined the band in 2011 on keys, organ, and vocals. Parker has really brought alot to the table, allowing the band to stretch out and push themselves further than ever before. The songs keep the listener close and involved and the tight vocal harmonies of Cole Harvey and Damon Parker help to fill the arrangements perfectly.
