“…sounds like the Red Hot Chili Peppers with a Mr. Bungle enema…this shit is hilarious…spastic and funky as hell with all types of changeups that range from funk to metal on the drop of a dimebag.”
-Metal Maniacs Magazine

Culminating a weird mutant sound through rapid juxtapositions between rock, metal, punk, funk and experimental, the shape-shifting entity known as DOWNTOWN BROWN has forged a diverse sound that is as fully developed as well as it is broadly enjoyable. DTB has hypnotized thousands throughout the country with their highly-entertaining live show, long pursuing a grassroots mission to unite the people of the world in an environment where “no man shall feel stupid for wearing a giant foam cowboy hat.” Their quest has hammered on since 2001, with numerous independent albums to boot – all of which garnered strong reviews from both international and local publications, most notably METAL MANIACS and PIT MAGAZINE.

2002 marked the release of DTB’s first full-length album, “Moist and Ridiculous” Since, DTB has released a total of three full-length albums, a live album which captured the fury of their live show and two feature-length DVDs. This media was all released on the band’s own imprint, CHOCOLATE STAIN RECORDS, selling thousands of copies nationally and internationally.

DTB adopted a rigid tour schedule early on, firmly establishing themselves first in the Midwest and then throughout the entire US through several self-booked national tours. These jaunts took them from coast to coast playing such notable venues as the KNITTING FACTORY in NYC and the VIPER ROOM in LA. The band was also personally invited by WARPED TOUR founder Kevin Lyman to play multiple dates on both the ‘06 and ‘07 tours. In their travels, DTB has shared the stage with numerous industry mainstays including SLIGHTLY STOOPID, PEPPER, ANDREW WK, HORSE THE BAND, MC CHRIS, THE PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, THE AQUABATS, ME FIRST AND THE GIMME GIMMES and the late WESLEY WILLIS.

“It’s not easy,” states singer/guitarist Neil P, whose sole creative vision has been the lifeblood of the band since its inception. “Putting out records and touring the country with absolutely no label support or monetary backing is stressful to say the least, especially when your band is impossible to categorize. But after every show, we stand alone as the most unique and entertaining band on the bill. It is our duty to provide the public with something different.”

…and something different is undoubtedly what DOWNTOWN BROWN provides.

"DOWNTOWN BROWN is a hip, entertaining and addictive mix of everything from balls out metal to funk to punk rock, all with a healthy dash of smartass humor ...DOWNTOWN BROWN is not musical anarchy or lame silliness ...these guys know exactly what theyre doing, and prove it by maintaining their own unique sound and attitude."
-Pit Magazine
