MMC 2016 Showcase Performance

Posted by Trudi Brown on February 19, 2016. 0 Comments

Each year Harrisburg, PA, hosts the Millennium Music Conference (MMC) - this critically acclaimed multi-day event brings together the full range of folks from the music industry - from artists and bands to engineers, label executives, radio technicians, etc... folks come from all over the United States and throughout the globe to network, learn, share ideas, and work with each other...

Part of this fun event includes SHOWCASE PERFORMANCES - a chance for attendees to perform for industry executives, and other musicians...

BUSHMASTER featuring Gary Brown is one such band - This critically acclaimed band and it's front man, Gary Brown, have been hailed as "Best Up and Coming Blues Rock Artist" by Rock Over America Magazine, and Living Blues Magazine said, "Brown’s high-energy anthems of outrage and liberation are effective on their own terms, but he hits hardest when he hits most gently." Finding out what a band sounds like can be as easy as reading a well worded review from an unbiased music publication, such as The Impaler, who wrote this: "Two key aspects of the Bushmaster sound set them apart from the average modern blues-rock band. Musically, Brown and his crew draw upon influences ranging from the obvious (Jimi Hendrix, for example) to the sublime (world beat, Latin rock, and – oh yeah! – Funkadelic). Lyrically, Brown seems to be influenced heavily by hip-hop revolutionaries Chuck D [Public Enemy] and KRS-One [Boogie Down Productions], adding a much-needed kick in the backside to the very concept of the blues..." Mike Spain from the Examiner wrote this about the band, "Bushmaster featuring the vocals and stellar guitar of Gary Brown... If you like blues, rock, and funk served with a great rhythm section and cool guitar then you will love Bushmaster..."
