People’s Blues of Richmond – Echoplex 2016

Light Beer Drinker Loves PBR

Fuzzy blues riffs with emotion driven bass lines (Matt Volkes) and a kick ass drummer (Neko Williams). I love the groove mixed songs and the voice of Tim Beavers II. I was first motivated to see PBR after I heard “Quit or Die” with it’s infectious drum beats and lyrics – this song sounds like Gogol Bordello and Jack White’s love child. Then “I Understand” makes the entire crowd smile and spill drinks – they can’t stop moving. There are plenty of dark, blues-inspired tracks on Quit of Die (the band’s third studio release) with PBR. This trio is loaded with talent, you will find yourself mesmerized by Neko’s drumming, he is a virtuoso, a prodigy on the skins! As I get older I am amazed at how talented and worldly bands like People’s Blues of Richmond seem. It’s like they have already lived more than a lifetime and soaked up enough musicianship and heartache, thus enabling them to spawn amazing albums. I can’t wait to see what they do next!

    I love a good IPA but when PBR is in town and on tap it’s a no brainer!
    Glad I had the opportunity to catch my friends on the west coast, no matter what stage these guys play on you can always bet on leaving with a smile on your face!
