Brothers Gow
Brothers Gow
The San Diego quintet Brothers Gow combines rock, funk, jazz and reggae influences with thoughtful lyrics, deep grooves and an ear for improvisation that keeps each show fresh and unique. With more than 500 shows under their belts, this well-seasoned band started off in Flagstaff, AZ, and since moving to Southern California, has developed a more dynamic sound, adding strong vocal harmonies and complex arrangements to their guitar-driven rock. Add to this mix an awe inspiring light show, and you have a recipe for a memorable concert experience.

The more evolved sound of Brothers Gow can be heard in Reflections their 4th studio album, that runs the gamut from arena rock and uptempo dance grooves to more musically and lyrically emotive tracks and some fan-favorite intrumental compositions that showcase Brothers Gow's tight arrangements.

In addition to their hard work getting people on the dance floor, the band has also demonstrated their commitment to making the world a better place for all of us. The Brothers Gow Foundation for Music Education was launched in 2014, and in its first charitable event raised enough money to put a stringed instrument in all 18 classrooms at OB Elementary (San Diego), and has plans to continue these efforts to support youth and music education.

Brothers Gow is:
Alex Gow Bastine (keyboards, vocals)
Carson Church (bass guitar)
Kyle Merrill (guitar, vocals, trumpet)
Ethan Wade (guitar, vocals)
Nathan Walsh-Haines (drums, vocals)
