Bio

Brother Wanamaker came about from relationships built at the Northern Kentucky University Music Department. With all members attending NKU at the same time and living in the Cincinnati area, it was easy for them to start jamming together. Chris(guitar) and Zac (drums) played jazz gigs together in the past and the Wanamaker brothers wanted to start a high energy soul/ funk band. They all loved the older funk groups like the Meters and Booker T and the MG's and newer bands like Soulive and Galactic. Though they are influenced and cover songs these groups Brother Wanamaker definitely have their own sound. Often taking popular tunes like Oh Darling (the Beatles) and Crosstown Traffic ( Jimi Hendrix) and playing them as fun instrumentals. Like the Meters they like to connect songs and have sag ways to keep the show going strong. Some of the original songs have a more modern rock/ jam band feel but still have a thumping groove. Chris Wanamaker also plays Keyboard on some songs giving the band double key sound that very original. With grand piano, clavinet, Rhodes, Wurlitzer, and organs sounds; the double keyboard songs rarely sound alike. One last thing, they are good at reading and reacting to a crowd. With a wide range a music, they can play almost anywhere and get a great reaction.
