Hi, been a while since we had a chance to touch base with you... We hope you and your family are safe and healthy!  We know that each of us have been impacted differently by this pandemic, and want you to know that we are here if you need/want to talk...


This past year, while we haven't been able to perform live shows, Gary has utilized his time writing new songs... he has amassed quite a few (over 50) and is now in the process of fine tuning them so he can choose which to record on his next album.  He has also used this down time to attend to some health issues, such as getting the much needed surgery on his left hand (the one that goes on the guitar's fret board) to repair the carpal tunnel issues that had gotten bad.  He had the surgery at the beginning...

Bushmaster featuring Gary Brown had the pleasure of performing at Clyde's Willow Creek, Ashburn, VA on Friday 3/13/20. When other musicians have had their shows cancelled due to the virus scare, we feel blessed to have been able to perform, and thank those who worked at the venue for providing a clean environment, both for us, and for those who came out to support live music... we appreciate you!!!

I have been away from home for a month, so I hadn't gone through my mail. But I found this treasure in the pile of the usual crap; 'Dancing in the Belly of the Beast". I finally had a chance to listen to Brother Gary's amazing new album. I can't remember the last time I heard such an incredible record.

It's as...

Translated (using google translate):

Bushmaster - Dancing In The Belly Of The Beast
Format: CD / Label: Gem Records
Release: 2019

Text: Peter Marinus

This fourth album from the Bushmaster band from Washington, DC, can be classified in the category "very pleasant soul blues". A versatile album on which soul, blues and funk go hand in hand, but where shouting Jimi Hendrix influences can also be found.
The band consists of singer-guitarist Gary Brown, bassist Justin Kimball, drummer Justin Pinkney and keyboardist Tim McDonald.

Translated (using Google translate): "Gary Brown (guitar, vocals), Justin Kimball (bass), Justin Pinkney (drums, percussion), Tim McDonald (keyboards), Daniel Weston Cohen (slide guitar) and vocalists Tracy Nelson and
Vickie Carrico together form the Bushmaster band. The funky opening song "Profile" recently won an HMMA (Hollywood Music In Media Award). But that could just as well have been reserved for the exciting 'Ajax And Hot Wax' or the blues rocker 'A Song For Freddie Gray'. The sexy guitar riffs and the pounding drum parts also color the tracks 'The Blues' and the slow 'Nowhere To Stand', with its handsome Hammond B3 organ parts. With the funky 'Mushroom', 'Miss Sexyfine' and 'Pressure Cooker' it is damn hard to sit...
