Scott Sharrard & The Brickyard Band
"Gregg Allmans secret weapon."- Glide Magazine
This is old school rock & roll, soul and blues in the tradition of early Steely Dan, The Allman Brothers, Joe Cocker's Mad & Dogs and Englishmen and James Brown. Its bedrock is the original work of guitarist/singer/songwriter/producer Scott Sharrard and Moses Patrou. Their new album "Scott Sharrard &The Brickyard Band" was engineered, mixed and co- produced by sonic wizard Charlie Martinez (Steely Dan, Keith Richard, Donald Fagen) and features some greasy horn arrangements by Amy Winehouse/Sharon Jones alum, Ian Hendrickson-Smith. Featuring Scott Sharrard/Vocals/Guitar, Jeff Hanley/Bass, Diego Voglino/Drums, Ben Stivers /Hammond B3 Organ/Keys, Moses Patrou/Drums/Percussion/Keys/Vocals
"One of the best guitarists in the country... - Larry Flick, Billboard Magazine"
What do a couple of IBM-ers, an orthodontist, a former roadie for Prince, and a handsome young fellow with actual talent have in common? Not a thing. Somehow they started playing music together in Krumville NY. Folk, rock, blues, a bit of country, and an occasional polka, this band defies strict definition. In fact, they prefer Webster's Dictionary version: "Band: a flat, thin strip or loop of material put around something, typically to hold it together or to decorate it." Come! Listen! See if you agree.
