The Balkun Brothers with Greco live at The Hummingbird
May 12, 2017 @ 10:00 pm - 2:00 am| $5
After coming onto the music scene with their powerful brand of psychedelic rock n’ roll, Balkun Brothers are creating a style of music all their own in the USA and worldwide. Founding members Steve Balkun (guitar/vocals) and Nick “The Hammer” Balkun (drums/vocals) are gaining followers across the world, becoming known for their high-energy live shows. Balkun Brothers bring a fresh mixture of funk, rock, blues, and intense improvisation that has been impressing crowds from Paris to Amsterdam to New York City.
Balkun Brothers have been featured alongside acts such as Johnny Winter, Joe Bonamassa, Iggy Pop, Gogol Bordello, Vapors of Morphine, Motley Crüe, Slayer, Eric Sardinas, Dopapod, James Cotton, and many more.
Their new album is due for release in Spring 2017 on the French label, Dixiefrog Records. The band recently completed their 3rd European tour this fall which will be followed by a full East Coast United States tour.
Hailing from Athens, GA Greco’s musical touch is summed up in four words: Sing. Dance. Sweat. Sex.
You’ll want to do all of these things while listening to their unique style of rock and roll. Their blend of modern hooks layered over rock & roll lyrics we’ll make you understand why your mama warned you about boys like these.
Greco connects to the audience through common experiences, sung & belted out over blistering riffs, while giving the crowd a chance to jump in a wild and morally ambiguous party. Their latest stage show reflects their breaking out of the stereotypical pop rock genre, and touching the dirty bits of life that happens to everyone and relating to how we all can keep pushing on.
