The Westcott Brothers Band represents the "New Breed" of young artists that are emerging on the blues scene. As two-time International Blues Challenge semi-finalists, the WBB will be a "not to miss" act at the January IBC gathering in Memphis.

Biography

If you are looking for a blues band that features a bunch of old Delta cats plunking around on beat up resonator guitars and moaning about bad whisky, cheatin’ women and the IRS, then you’ve found the wrong band. The Westcott Brothers Band is a kick-ass group of young men that are redefining the progressive blues and jam/rock genres by combining killer guitar, bass, organ and percussion work with original vocals and a funk that they call “PsychoMojo.”

When Westcott brothers Andrew and Philip were growing up, the only music they heard around their house came from artists with names such as Stevie Ray, The Neville Bros, and Allman Bros. The brainwashing worked.…it all sank in and created a brother act that was recently described by Phoenix’s BARC Productions as “If Johnny Lang and John Mayer were kin...they would sound exactly like the Westcott Brothers".

The uniqueness of the Westcott Brothers Band has been the focus of a number of newspaper articles nationally including the Washington Post and the IBC/Memphis which said of the band "wonderful act, these guys are really going somewhere.”

The band can be heard on various blues oriented radio and specialty shows and continue to perform at blues fests across the country including the Baltimore Blues Festival, King Biscuit (AR), Bele Chere (NC), and the Western MD Blues Fest.

Currently the band can be seen throughout the U.S. at local club and concert venues, festivals, and at music halls sharing the stage with artists such as Delbert McClinton, the Holmes Brothers, Southside Johnny, Joe Bonamassa and Bo Diddley.

The Westcott Brothers Band debut release of “Bottom of the Hole” on Indie label PsychMojo Records was released in January, 2005.
