NEWS UPDATE – 11TH JUNE 2017.


BROTHERHOOD WILL PLAY SPLENDOUR FESTIVAL AS A FULL BAND.

We are excited to announce that our Splendour Festival appearance on Saturday 22nd July will be as a 5 piece band.  We have adopted 3 new brothers to make the band line-up with us, allow us to introduce them to you:
 
              

 
From L to R:  Graham Alexander, Bass & Backing Vocals:  Matt Walters, Drums:  Kev Beal, Guitars & Backing Vocals
 
Here is a short biog from each of the band members and links to find out more about them:

 




GRAHAM ALEXANDER, Bass Guitar & Backing Vocals.
 
Graham has known and worked with both Ant and Matt long before Brotherhood started, Graham has always been involved in one way or another with them. He really is their 'Brother from another Mother' 
 
Having been Ant (and Kev's) bass player in their original heavy rock band 'Saigon Kiss' in the early 1990's, Graham has continued to play in many acts both on the club circuit, cruises, and the tribute scene which has seen him perform all over the world including Las Vegas, USA, India, Croatia, Bahrain and Abu Dhabi to name but a few!
 
Grahams high energy stage presence and powerful bass style will give Brotherhood’s sound even more drive and it is his immense pleasure to be of service!
 
Graham can be found and followed on Facebook:   www.facebook.com/Gee.33 
 
 
MATT WALTERS, Drums.
 
Matt started playing on the pub & club scene when he was 17 with Ready Steady 60.
 
Rock-steady and intuitive, Matt started drumming from an early age in church/gospel, school and show bands. While learning to play, Matt was heavily influenced by the rock grooves from bands such as Led Zeppelin, AC/DC and Nirvana, however you will often hear jazz and funk cleverly integrated into his playing style.
 
Currently, Matt plays in the band 'Part-E' with his brother Tom and their two friends Katie and Chloe performing hits from the 60s through to modern day.
 
You can find them on Facebook:  www.facebook.com/parteband or on www.parteband.com
 
 
KEV BEAL, Electric & Acoustic Guitars & Backing Vocals.
 
Kev is a Guitarist, Singer, Songwriter with over 3000 live performances to date.  He has done all kinds of shows from Holiday Camps to Festivals such as Pentrich Rock & Blues and Americana . 
 
He is currently working the Pub & Club circuit in the Glam Rock tribute ‘Near Az Glam-It!’ and as the solo artist ‘Max D’Lux’.
 
Kev has written many songs and was delighted when Brotherhood chose to co-write with him ‘A Love That Should Be’ on their current debut original album ‘Occupational Hazard’
 
Kev’s association with Ant & Matt goes back way before Brotherhood began, he has performed with them at past concerts when they have required a session guitarist and is ecstatic to be ‘The Chosen One’ to play live with Brotherhood at Splendour Festival – It is going to be absolutely awesome.
 
Find out more about Kev on Facebook:  www.facebook.com/NearAzGlamIt

 



Brotherhood are currently in rehearsals for Splendour and it is sounding AMAZING!!!  You don’t want to miss this opportunity to catch most of the songs from ‘Occupational Hazard’ performed as a full band.

BROTHERHOOD WILL PLAY ROCK CITY’S MAIN STAGE ON SUNDAY 7TH MAY 2017.
 
FREE TICKETS & FREE ENTRY – WE NEED YOU THERE!!

 
Hey guys, huge thanks and congrats all round, we made Rock City’s Main Stage together, and not only that, we finished the public vote in 1st place with the highest number of votes ever received thanks to you.
 
We are down from 67 initial entries to the last 6 and we all battle it out in the Final in the Main Hall of Rock City on Sunday 7th May. 
 
The winner will be announced on the night and they will then go on to perform at Splendour Festival in Wollaton Park, Nottingham with Kaiser Chiefs, Busted and many other big names on Saturday 22nd July.
 
WE STILL MASSIVELY NEED YOUR HELP, NOW MORE SO THAN EVER. 
 
How the vote works in the Final is a mixture of public reaction (how loud you cheer & how many there are of you, a decibel reading will be took several times throughout the night to create an audience score) 5 top record industry judges will also be scoring separately. 
 
The audience & judges scores will be combined to create a final score.  We cannot stress how important it is for us to cram as many Brotherhood fans and friends into Rock City as possible, so we ask you all to come, bring ya friends & family and go absolutely mental with us!!  Anyone over the age of 14 can come, but no under 14’s are allowed.
 
Rock City is bang in the middle of Nottingham City Centre, there are no tickets needed for the Final and it is FREE to get in, so just turn up.  Doors open to the public at 6.30pm and the first finalist will be onstage at 7pm prompt, so don’t be late.  There will be no running order announced so we don’t know exactly what time we will be on, but just be there in the mosh pit ready to go nuts when we hit the stage.
 
There are loads of hotels in Nottingham City Centre just a stones throw from Rock City (Travelodge, Holiday Inn, Britannia) just Google it as there are some really cheap hotel deals, come and make a proper night of it with us.
 
Win or not on the night, we are still going to have the after party of all after party’s and ask anyone that comes down to join us around town for drinks afterwards until the small hours, so if you can and want to party with us make sure you book Monday 8th off!!!  If you do have work the next day, we would still love your support in the Final and it will all be over by 10pm(ish) so please still come down to Rock City and give us some much needed support!!!

Please come along and help us in one final push, we can only do this TOGETHER…..there’s strength in numbers!!

Once again a massive thanks for your support on voting for us in ‘The Future Sound Of Nottingham 2017’ to give us the opportunity to play at ‘ ROCK CITY ’ Nottingham in the main hall!!  The same stage that has held epic concerts by Rock & Pop royalty over the years…..the likes of ‘Ed Sheeran, Guns’n Roses (The original line up on the Appetite For Destruction tour!!), David Bowie, U2, Oasis, Nirvana, Iron Maiden, Green Day, The Goo Goo Dolls, Foo Fighters, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Blur and 1000’s more and we ain’t talking tribute acts here, we’re talking the real deal!!!
Rock City is still Nottingham’s premier music venue and still continues to host huge concerts today with the likes of Busted, Rag N Bone Man, Stormzy, Sam Smith, The Kooks, the list goes on and on and on.  So to tread the same boards as some of the legends that have performed there would be amazing.
But have we done enough, did we get enough votes??  It was looking great 24 hours before voting finished and Brotherhood were over 600 votes ahead of 2nd place (you only need to finish in the top 4 to secure a place in the Final at Rock City).  The voting then went blind for the last 24 hours, so nobody knows the final results yet, not even us.
So, when will we find out you all keep asking and we can now reveal this is how to find out who has made the final.
New Music Podcasts, The Results of who has made the final and who will be performing at Rock City, Nottingham are announced exclusively from 11am Monday 10th April 2017 by listening to the podcast at the link below....
We will of course announce here eventually, but we won’t be announcing the results on our website or social media pages until a few days after, so please have a listen to the podcast!!
