The Weber Brothers
There are bands for which rock and roll is a lifestyle, and then there are bands for which it is life. To many, The Weber Brothers are the baddest band in the land. To many others, their story sits like an ancient volume in an old bookstore, dust covered, tucked away behind hundreds of newer, shinier books. Untouched. Waiting to be discovered. Regardless of what side you’re on, there’s an undeniable truth. In the rough and tumble world of rock and roll, The Weber Brothers have been around the block. Over the past 16 years they’ve recorded 12 independent albums and toured extensively throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe. In October 2012 the brothers were invited to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame American Music Masters Tribute to Chuck Berry in Cleveland where they shared the stage with Merle Haggard, Lemmy Kilmister, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, Rick Derringer, Joe Bonamassa, Earl Slick, Steve Jordan and the father of Rock and Roll himself, Chuck Berry. 2016 saw the release of “Before We Arrive: The Story of The Weber Brothers”, a feature length documentary chronicling the pair’s musical journey, which the Toronto Independent Film Festival dubbed “Best Documentary” for 2016. Also known for their talent as studio musicians, the brothers have recorded on dozens of outside projects, including work with Gordon Lightfoot, Kris Kristofferson, Ronnie Hawkins and Willie Nelson.
