Bredrin Daddys Review From House Of Blues Show.

Why would a venue such as the House of Blues not open doors for a show til 10:00???? Your guess would be as good as mine I suppose. But when the bill is weighted with the Bredrin Daddys (LINK!!!!) and Badfish (LINK!!!!) it is still well worth the drive.
First to bat, Brokedown, I know nothing of this band, so didn?t have an idea as to what we were in for. For an ?unknown? I must say, Brokedown sounded up and running to me. Of course as a 4 band bill that doesn?t start until 10:30 their set was cut to what seemed to be only 20 minutes??????!!!???? So, this review can?t be to in depth. But I can tell you to watch for these guys in the next few. Their music seemed completely original, and it is obvious from their live sound that they understand the importance of rehearsals. Very tight set, I can?t wait until I have the opportunity to view a full set.
Next, another band unknown to my ears?Sunken city?on this night, it seemed if you took a bathroom break, you missed the set. As soon as these boys were just warming up, they were removed from the stage. I think I get it now, someone in charge of that night must be in a band himself, a crappy band it must be. Everytime he felt threatened by the talent on stage, he unplugged them. No that couldn?t be right, for Badfish and the Bredrin Daddys were still due up?.or were they?? Hmmm??
Ok, WHEW!!! Suddenly, the room darkened, and with the first few notes, Badfish was on!! And what a song to begin, ?Don?t cry? fitting as these shortened sets made us want to. But if Ruben is telling us it?s o.k., then everything is alright. Badfish is one band I could never tire myself from watching. The emotion conveyed through their music is unlike any, the way they can blend reggae and hip hip with the class they do is remarkable, unbelievable even. Even on a night that bummed the house, Badfish, as usual, found a way to ease our pains delivering a (short) tight, energetic set helping us forget all wrongs. It is always such a treat to get lost in the Badfish ways.
Next up?the Bredrin Daddys!!!!! I still don?t see how I have only recently stumbled across these guys. It makes me wonder how much longer I would have been deprived had Sense Boardwear Mike (LINK!!!!!!!) not been so gracious as to lend me their cd last month. As I have already come to expect, the Bredrin Daddys came out and immediately seized the attention of each member of their audience. The energy these boys shell out exhausts me even. In my second viewing I have already learned not to take my eyes off the stage in fear of missing something. Never before have I seen such professionalism and crossing of styles done so well. One thing for sure about the Bredrin Daddys is that they are definitely in a class of their own. I don?t simply mean the way they hold stage, but their musical style is like none I have heard, for they are definitely impossible to label. Naming them as a hip hop band would be a little off, as well as hard rock, or reggae. I have heard them described as hardcore hip hop, but even that is too generic a name. so let?s just say, see them for yourself. And when you do, you will understand why I feel they are far above classification.
Check out Badfish and the Bredrin Daddys Saturday October 25 at the long beach marina



Review from one of the U.K's largest review sites.

The Bredrin Daddys ? ?Monkey Business?

1. Cant Hold We Down
2. For The People
3. When Kingdom Comes
4. One To Follow
5. Daydreamin?
6. Who?s Your Daddy?
7. As I Grab The Mic
8. Look Alive, Kid
9. Gimmie The?
10. Long Beach Stylee
11. Family Affair Part 2

The Bredrin Daddys are not only one of America?s best kept secrets. They are also one of the front runners of the reggae / metal crossover genre headed by bands such as Insolence that are really starting to come into the limelight once more. Perhaps this could be the new trend? We can only hope so! Their latest record finds them injecting a further metallic power to their mix of styles creating a nicely undulating record filled with a blend of laid back songs for summer evenings and heavier cuts to pump up your car stereo.

Opener; ?Can?t Hold We Down? (featuring members of Long Beach Dub Allstars and Chapter 11) is the flag bearer for the laidback camp and represents accordingly. The track is filled to the brim with melody, beautifully complimentary vocals, a glistening guitar solo and one hell of a bass line! So what happens when the band inject some riffs into the mix? Well the intricate and lyrically intelligent; ?When Kingdom Comes? is what happens. A song that tells of a grass roots love of music in the face of a harsh industry and despite a watery, disappointing chorus the song?s verses more than carry it. It is with songs like this and ?One To Follow? that the band really touch on greatness, especially with regard to their crossover style. Unfortunately this style requires an expert touch and depth when it comes to guitar production and in many instances this strongly independent band was just unable to attain it, at least not on this release.

Luckily, the album is solidified greatly with the production friendly reggae numbers such as the wonderfully memorable; ?Daydreamin? and the hugely catchy Tippa Irie enhanced ?Who?s Your Daddy??. There are hints of familiarity throughout especially the Crazy Town esque ?For The People? and the Insolence/Beastie Boys esque ?As I Grab The Mic?. They lay down a darker style on ?Look Alive, Kid? and for the most part it works very nicely with crushing percussion and the strongest guitar presence on the album.

The Bredrin Daddys are definitely a band of consistent quality to watch out for because from this album on it is full steam ahead for these guys and they mean business. With a worthy career already in their wake, the only way is up and hopefully the production issues on ?Monkey Business? will be addressed on their next release making it just that bit more essential than it?s predecessor. For now though ? if you are not familiar with the band; this is one great place to start.

Standout Tracks: ?Cant? Hold We Down?, ?When Kingdom Comes?, ?Daydreamin? & ?As I Grab The Mic?.



Bredrin Daddys review from Live Magazine: By Dustin Phillips

There's nothing like a concert that pleasantly surprises you. My buddy Damien said I had to get to this show, and although I
didn't believe him at the time, he was right. A Saturday night of reggae rock amongst friends can turn out to be more fun then
your brother's bachelor party. Four bands were on the bill at The Galaxy on September 27th: Badfish, Thinking Aloud, Bredrin
Daddys and Chapter 11, who were celebrating their new CD release.

With so much reggae-rock on tap, it's hard not to think back to the good 'ol party days of Sublime. Brad and his crazy LBC
gang paved the road for this new generation of stony rockers, and to this day Sublime's music still maintains a powerful
influence over the Southern California music scene. The challenge for these new reggae-rocking bands is carrying the torch in
a manner that proves they are creative and not ripping off the Sublime style, while at the same time staying true to the musical
roots by which the band provides itself an avenue to be successful.

This show proved that some bands can rise to the challenge, while others are simply copycats. The duo, Thinking Aloud,
spun up reggae dubs between each of the bands sets, providing marginal background noise until Badfish (a long-time San
Diego favorite) took the stage. Badfish played a standard set, but nothing seemed too special about the performance. But
when Long Beach locals are in the house, it is probably a wise decision for Badfish not to steal the show. If you're a Badfish
fan, you walked away happy anyway. I may have enjoyed the set more, but I was a little distracted: Our lazy waitress never
came back to our table to take the order for the next round of alcohol. For the record, she came to our table once the entire
night. (She's so fired!)

The Bredrin Daddys took the stage next amongst an antsy and buzzed twenty-something crowd. Honestly, before the show, I
had never heard a single note from the Bredin Daddys and their entourage of members. How quickly Damien's
recommendation turned into a pot-o-gold. This IS the best reggae rock band on the local scene. They sling a fury of upbeat
reggae beats around so loosely that all of the sudden you are hearing a furious low-tuned hard rock sound reminiscent of the
rock/rap you hear blaring from every hard rock station in Southern California.

Herein lies their genius. Sublime transfused elements of reggae, rock and punk to near perfection; so for any band to try to do
it again would be a feeble attempt at trying to make the same thing work twice. But the Bredrin Daddys have taken Sublime's
recipe for success and updated it for the new and ADD-esque (attention deficit disorder) tastes of today's younger audience.

Leftover Sublime loyalists will listen to the Daddys and revel in the notion that the Sublime style still has a stronghold on the
local music scene, while younger rap/rock enthusiasts will think they have found an original local band that makes them
sound cool when they talk about them over lunch break. Rapping, hard rock reggae is something I never thought I would
hear, so maybe "original" is a good description. And, the Bredrin Daddys are indeed good. But, just as Elvis is the King of
Rock, Sublime is the Godfather of Reggae Rock. With a strong reggae and rock following in Southern California, I would be
surprised if the Bredrin Daddys don't break corporate music's concrete barrier into radio airplay.

Finally, Chapter 11 took the stage to celebrate the release of their new CD, Long Short Story. They too play a lazy, yet upbeat
reggae-influenced rap/rock sound, but in no way did they compare to the energetic face-paced set of the Bredrin Daddys.
Although the band definitely impressed the remaining audience, following the Daddys performance was a little too much to
ask of Chapter 11.

Hit up all of these bands websites if you are a fan of reggae, rock or rap. That way you can say you heard of all of them before
your friends did. Kinda like the days when Sublime finally made it big. Isn't it interesting how some bands have that effect?

Feeling a bit camera shy


The Bredrin Daddys began out of a bedroom studio in Long Beach CA. Selling out clubs instantly and pushing the limit of styles that they love. They have shared the stage with such acts as System of a Down, Tribe Called Quest, Linkin Park, Papa Roach, Kottonmouth Kings, Hed Pe, Zebrahead, The Wailers, Tippa Irie, Pato Banton, Eek-A-Mouse, Pepper, Slightly Stoopid, Sublime, Third World, Isreal Vibrations, The Alkoholiks, The Pharcyde, Static X, Kid Rock, Guttermouth, Bad Brains, Fishbone and many others. Just recently making it to the L.A. finals and finishing in the top 12 of 400 bands that entered in the "Bodog Battle of the Bands, they continue their run as one of Long Beach's, and possibly Southern California's best unsigned bands.
The Bredrin Daddys just inked a licensing deal with Japanese label Surfrock Inernational. Look for the re-release of their last full length LP "Monkey Business" on March 21st, 2007.
