Brook Adams

- My mom was wrong! She said I should...
"find something to fall back on when music doesn't work out".
But whenever I'm out of a job, I go and find a gig. Sorry Mom!
- Sublime and stupid come from the same place.
Joni Mitchell said, "...laughin' and cryin' you know they're the same release".
Ray Stevens said, "...Let's hear it for the monkey!".
This describes my songs pretty well.
- Music should be fun.
It want it to move my feet, free my mind and break my heart.

Miller Brothers Band

The Miller Brothers Band of Eugene, Oregon play Soul, R&B and retro hits from their debauched collective youth. Their rich vocal harmonies and powerful groove is fun for dancing. Formidable frontman Steve Miller (not the famous one) sings like a mix of Wilson Pickett and John Fogerty. Steve's brother Tim plays bass and acts as the responsible adult for the group. Groove-meister Jeff has played with a host of popular local bands in Eugene and is indispensable on vocals. El Borko on guitar...

Who is El Borko?

Last years' office football pool required some kind of name... So I chose "El Borko". Then one night at a take out place they asked for a name and I said, "El Borko" and I like the way it sounds. So you can still call me Brook but if you see "El Borko" is playing somewhere, it's me! Let's try it...

EL BORKO has performed at: New York Ukefest, Portland Ukefest, Wine Country Ukefest (Napa Valley, CA), Oregon Country Fair (Eugene, OR), Seattle Folklife, Ukulele Club of Santa Cruz, Berkeley Ukulele Club (Berkeley, CA), Gorge Ukefest (Hood River, OR), Reno Ukefest, Omaha Ukulele Hoopla, West Coast Ukulele retreat (Monterrey, CA), Columbia Gorge Ukulele Band Camp (Portland OR), Port Townsend Ukulele Festival, Eugene UKEtoberFest (Eugene, OR), Oakridge Ukulele Festival (Oakridge, OR).
