Brook Adams plays retro pop music on guitar and ukulele. His skillful playing and soulful whiskey voice evoke a timeless groove where the sounds of Bakersfield, New Orleans and the heartland coalesce. His songs are like undiscovered classics, whimsical, emotional, memorable. A surprising range of covers includes Beatles, Marvin Gaye, Clapton, Spirit, and other cool stuff.
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.
