Brandon Bower will keep the AT&T Summer BrewFest TGIF crowd rocking ‘til the sun goes down. Hailing from Augusta, Georgia, where funk and soul seems to run in the water, Brandon Bower dove in head first, sunk to the bottom and came back up with an undeniable force. He draws from such inspirations as fellow Augustan, the Godfather of Soul himself, Mr. James Brown. In fact a local radio personality said it best "If Elvis Presley and James Brown had a child, it would be no other than Brandon Bower". He captivates audiences with relentless passion for the sake of the message. He has honed his craft of performing and writing through ten years of gigging and touring. During that time he has shared the stage with James Brown and the Soul Generals, Jennifer Nettles (currently of Sugarland), Colonel Bruce Hampton and The Code Talkers, Tim Reynolds, Chris Barron of the Spin Doctors, Guitar Wizard Monte Montgomery, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, John Michael Montgomery, Twila Paris, and the list goes on. In conjunction with performing, Brandon is a distinguished songwriter of over 50 originals and has co-written with Charles Kelley, frontman of the chart topping trio, Lady Antebellum.
A portion of the beverage sales will benefit the The Noblemen. The Noblemen is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based out of Virginia Beach, Virginia which includes eight member chapters located throughout the Hampton Roads region. The Noblemen mission is to identify and perform Noble Deeds for great local kids who are in need of help. Visit them at www.thenoblemen.org and learn how you can "Be a Part of the Solution"!
