Born of the same mother and different fathers, The Bastard Brothers play music with roots as diverse as their bloodlines.
Bastardizing all forms of music equally they use three part harmonies, fast pickin'
and a wicked sense of humor to play a variety of songs from many different genres with a bluegrass/country twang.
You are likely to hear songs by Pink Floyd, Frank Zappa, AC/DC, The Beatles, Tom Waits, Talking Heads as well as
originals, old-time music and some cuban tunes; all without loosing the foot stompin' vibe that bluegrass fans crave.
