At 13, Rich Brown studied guitar under Nashville session player Ken Carlson, concentrating on playing Country, Rock and Folk Rock in solo performances until discovering his passion for the blues in the 1980’s. He played in Gurus of Blues (still active in Chicago) in the 1980’s and 90’s.
In the 2000’s, Brown studied under BMA winner and Country Blues Master Paul Rishell. Then struck out on his own, playing Delta, Piedmont and Country Blues in the New England area. Brown’s 2009 CD Beach Blues and 2013 Down A Good Road are collections of original pieces rooted in traditional Country and Delta blues styles, still getting radio airplay around the country.
Since 2013, Brown has been performing from Florida to New England and out to the Mississippi, playing primarily solo and duo until forming the Rich Brown Trio in 2015. The Rich Brown Blues Band formed in 2016. Brown describes the Band as a transformative project. Along with decades of experience as a solo performer, Brown brings life experience to his audience, his fascination of the Blues rooted in the Delta, Piedmont and Chicago styles, incorporating the history of Blues into each performance, allowing the audience to connect on a deeper level with the tunes he chooses. Over the years, the music stirred, now the band has added heat, flavor and a damn good time!
The Rich Brown Blues Band is a tasty musical gumbo, a four piece band that fits together naturally. The band features Vince Trimboli (guitar), Monty Harp (vocals, bass), Marcos Noriega (drums), and Rich Brown (vocals, guitar). The band is picked up regularly and playing clubs and venues in the Space Coast area, and has an interest in booking festivals for 2020, as well as out of area shows! This Band is HOT!!!
