40TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION
GBKR, a family band that goes back 6 generations into their musical roots, has performed in all 50 US states, Canada, and Europe extensively since being formed in 1980. Today, 3 generations of Brewers, (Gary, his dad, and two sons) along with a banjo player, take the stage performing Bluegrass originals, Country music classics, foot-stomping Old-time Mountain Music, and good ole Gospel hymns; offering a little something for everybody. Gary has stamped their style of music as “Brewgrass”.
During his music career, Gary Brewer has recorded for multiple major record labels including Copper Creek releasing 29 studio albums and a double live album (recorded on one of his European tours). Now, he has launched his own label called SGM Records (Stretch Grass Music). He has released an additional 20 albums on his label. GBKR’s most recent release, “Vintage Country Revival” brought great success charting at #1 on the Global Country Radio Charts and receiving 2 nominations in the
61st Grammy Awards (for Best Americana Album & Best American-Roots performance).
The entire Brewer clan has come by their musical talents honestly. They have true respect for their roots that reach back to the 1920s including third-generation Brewer, Finley J. “Pap” Brewer Sr., performing with the Original Carter family. Because of such a great love for music being passed down for generations, Gary is a strong traditionalist. He has toured alongside many Bluegrass music legends throughout his career. (Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin, J.D. Crowe, Uncle Josh Graves, and many more) (...read more)
