Brewster Moonface

Friday - November, 23 @ 8:00pm

In a world of auto-tune and laptops on stage, Brewster Moonface stands in stark contrast with its vocal driven blues and minimalist nail driving rhythm section. There are no meat suits or disco balls here, just plain honest roots, blues and soul.

Led by Julie, whose vocals have been described as a combination of Janis Joplin and Big Mama Thornton, Brewster Moonface is backed by Jim on guitar, Andrew on bass and Justin on drums.

Founded in New York City, Brewster Moonface set out with the simple mission of bringing the blues back to the mainstream and pushing it a step further. Since forming they’ve been regular guests on City World Radio and Harmonica Joe’s Back Porch and has been featured on Dan Herman’s Radio Crystal Blue, Dennis Has a Podcast and Relix Magazine’s Women Who Rock.  They’ve toured throughout the country and are a regular feature on the Make Music New York, The Cosmic Blues and the Ultimate Louisiana Party Festivals. They are regular performers at the TCS New York City Marathon.  In addition, Julie has been named a Singer Universe featured vocalist and a Women of Substance Radio winner. But most importantly they have been featured in the dimly lit clubs, alleyways and street-corners of world always on the mission of “Bringing Back the Blues!”
