The Neighbours are a band you are sure to hear more from. Their style blends the sound of classic rock with a youthful energy, eager to push musical boundaries. Their ability to tastefully explore the horizons of musical improvisation while also focusing on song writing results in an accessible musical style that is as unique as the members of the band. Based out of Ithaca, NY, their originality thrives from the diversity within their music and their band. With all the members growin up in different parts of the northeast, the band was not formed until meeting at Ithaca College in 2003.

The backbone of the band lies within drummer, Brendan Woodard. At just 16 years old, Brendan joined a professional blues band and has been playing music with various groups ever since. While growing up in the Catskills of New York state, he became friends with Australian-born bassist, Madhava Hansen. Once at Ithaca College, the two friends met their next door neighbour, Tim Kelly. A native of Poughkeepsie, NY, Tim plays guitar for the group. He and Madhava quickly proved to be the prominent song writers and vocalists of the band. The all encompassing sound that the band has created is one capable of touching all of the different emotions. Looking to reach new levels of musical experience, Tim, Brendan, and Madhava sought for new sounds for the band. The perfect compliment was found in keyboardist Peter Joseph, originally from the suburban Boston area. Peter's passion for music combined with his enthusiastic playing style embodies Rock n Roll. Completing the bands sound is the most recent addition to the band, lead guitarist Kurt Krumme. While growing up in Utica, NY, Kurt found music at an early age. At the age of six, he began training in classical guitar, a style he would continue to pursue until he discovered the genius of rock guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix and Jerry Garcia. Things changed for good right then and his distinctive musical style took form. Ever since the fist time they played together, it was clear that Kurt fit right in with the band.

The bands influences are rooted in blues and early Rock n Roll artists such as The Band, The Beatles, Cream, and Taj Mahal, while also clearly reflecting more recent artists such as Alice in Chains, Beck, Cake, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Phish. This unique blend of influences has lead to a contemporary rock sound that has met high praise from music fans of all kinds, spawning a following that continues to grow.
