Live@ Studio 64 ( presented by Overtime Beer Works) will be hosting the Doggone Brothers band for a bluegrass concert in the Studio on June 3 at 8:00 pm.

If you are a devoted bluegrass fan or new to the genre then the Doggone Brothers are for you.

“ these fellers are doggone entertaining “ - festival goer at the Shady Grove Bluegrass Festival 2021.

It’s the unplanned things that make live music fun : enter the hillbilly stylings of the Doggone Brothers. This Kootenay-based duo is Clayton Parsons ( The Good ‘Ol Goats, The Parsons) on banjo and dobro, and Michael Hepher (Craig Young Band, Redgirl, As The Crow Flies) on mandolin, octave mandolin and guitar.

Homey, approachable, irreverent and uplifting are all words that describe the Doggone Brothers well. Both seasoned musicians in their own right, Clay and Mike crossed paths at a mutual friend’s birthday party and ended up jamming the night away. That night of jamming turned into a regular thing: The Doggone Brothers. The music is distinctly grassy, with a dash of old country and a side of old time music throughout their set of originals and hillbilly cover tunes. They are sure to entertain as they duel back and forth with their respective axes- carving a unique sonic experience into any traditional set.

Known for their spontaneous laughs, cheeky banter, and all-in stage presence, the Doggone Brothers round out their sets with incisive breaks, blood-style harmonies and thoughtful tunes. This doggone duo and friends brings a unique flavour to any stage, festival or street corner. You never know what you are going to get from the Doggone Brothers, but you can count on it being a doggone good time!

The concert is presented by Overtime Beer Works on June 3 in the Centre 64 studio.
