The People Brothers Band is an 8-piece Rhythm & Soul powerhouse whose only desire is to get you moving on the dance floor. Since they formed in 2009 they’ve been doing just that, and they have the record to prove it. They won a MAMA (Madison Area Music Award) in 2013 for Blues Album & Blues Song of the Year, a WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) Award in 2014 for R&B Band of the Year, and another MAMA in 2015 for Pop/R&B Album of the Year. It should be no surprise that they are being nominated for 2 more MAMAs this year. More important than any award though, you can just see their love for music and playing together every single time they perform. They play material with influences ranging from Bluegrass to Hip-Hop, and even throw in their own take on some cover songs. All of this comes together into an act that is very hard to follow.
The People Brothers Band have produced, hosted, and headlined their own grass-roots music and camping festival since their first summer together. Every year for three days, music lovers and over 25 local and regional bands from Madison and across the Midwest come together for an unforgettable gathering.
