We are from Augusta, Ga, the same town as James Brown. We have played with many of his long-time musicians, and have shared the stage with the Godfather of Soul himself.
JJ won the 2005 Ohio Drum Battle, held in Akron, OH, winning the title Ohio’s best drummer, and receiving a mention in DRUM! magazine. He was a member of several All-State and All-County marching, jazz, and symphonic bands in high school, as well as the Atlanta Olympic Band and University of Georgia Redcoat Marching Band.
Levi won the “Favorite Bass Player” at Augusta’s Lokal Loudness Music Awards. He is highly respected in the bass playing community. He is known as “a bass player’s bass player.”
After Brandon lost the tip of his finger of his fretting hand in a freak accident, he continued to play guitar with three fingers for more than a year. After a successful reconstructive surgery, Brandon was eventually able to play with all of his fingers again. Another fun fact…… The severed fingertip ended up in Levi’s freezer for many years, and would often be periodically pulled out and put on display!
Brandon was the #1 artist in the country on the singer-songwriter chart for ReverbNation for over a month, and was featured numerous times on the front page of http://www.reverbnation.com/artist_1746159/bio.

Brandon Bower is not someone you want to miss!! He’s by far one of the most talented musicians I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Any time you can catch his performance is a time you will be thoroughly entertained. You’ll still be singin’ & stompin’ your feet after you get home!!! Really!!! -Erik Hargrove, Drummer for James Brown, Bootsy Collins, Sister Hazel
