The band that launched the career of Janis Joplin, recorded ‘Cheap Thrills’, one of the greatest albums of all time and were pioneers of the San Francisco sound in the time of the Summer of Love now features two original members, Peter Albin,(bass and vocals)and Dave Getz,(Drums. Peter founded the band in 1965 and Dave joined in March 1966. They have been playing together as Big Brother since then.
Big Brother’s lead singer, Eileen Humphreys has the mind-blowing vocal ‘chops’ that are required to do all of the Joplin classics with total authority and feeling. She is truly one of the great Janis interpreters and blues singers who can stand up to the inevitable comparisons (They know there will never be another Janis) without being an imitator.
Tom Finch, guitar/vocals and Kate Russo, violin/keyboard/vocals are both dynamic, exciting and virtuoso musicians who bring their energy, style and perfect understanding of the music to complete the mix.
