Larry Brown has been many players in the world of music from lead and backup vocals, bass, rhythm guitar, and keyboards. Now being the smartest of the bunch, Larry presided over 99.9 % of the booking and buisness dealings with not only the band but with the bars and restaurants as well.
On the off stage side he is a master electrician while also mixing it up with local groups around SE and central Texas including The Line Up, Gold Rush Mountain Band and Guns and Oil.
Recently reconstituted, Larry and younger brother Bobbe are performing in the Austin area as a duo.
Bobbe started his career in 1965 with The Brown Brother's Band. They played up and down US 61 from Memphis to New Orleans for 4 years. Disbanding and going their separate ways, Bobbe moved to NE Texas, where he started working studios at the age of 20. While at Robin Hood Brian's Studio in Tyler, TX, he met Mickey Gilley whom he later played guitar for in Pasadena, TX. While there, he played many recording sessions, including 1981 Grammy award winning Best Country Instrumental of the Year for "Orange Blossom Special" performed by Gilley's Urban Cowboy Band. After leaving the Gilley organization, he reunited with his brothers (Jimi, Larry and Johnny) in Galveston, TX to reform the Brown Brothers Band.
