BroadBand is a four piece band playing a variety of musical styles from Americana, through Rock, Country and some original material.

The band combines lush harmonies with nuanced and tasteful musicianship. No guitar shredding, no drum solos, no screaming – just great music performed at sensible volume.

Not the usual Brevard County Bar Band…….
