Ries BrothersBlues, Rock
The brothers completed a summer headlining tour, highlighted by a performance at “The House that Les Paul Built,” the legendary Iridium in NYC. Here is a review of the show by The Huffington Post:
The Ries Brothers recently toured 5 states opening for the legendary Butch Trucks (Allman Brothers) & The Freight Train Band. They have twice toured nationally with the iconic band CHICAGO. Their first 10 city tour with CHICAGO included a performance at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. They recently sold out three headlining shows at Ruth Eckerd Hall’s Murray Theatre in Clearwater, Florida. The Ries Brothers have also opened for David Cook, Daughtry, Los Lonely Boys, REO Speedwagon, Little River Band, the Edgar Winter Band & The Family Stone among others. They have also appeared at the House of Blues & Viper Room in Los Angeles.
Older brother, Charlie, handles the lead vocals while simultaneously playing the drums and keyboard bass. The duo’s full sound is a result of Charlie’s unique ability to do this. Kevin plays guitar, provides background vocals and is the co-writer on many of their original songs. In the summer of 2013, the boys were 2 of only 25 performers ages 14-21 selected from the state of Florida to participate in the exclusive Los Angeles Grammy Museum’s Music Revolution Project. In the summer of 2014 the boys were part of the Van’s Warped Tour in Florida. The Ries Brothers were recently named by The Tampa Bay Times as one of their favorite artists of the past year.
