Brothers Keeper, featuring John Popper and other special guests, will take the stage at Havana New Hope on Tuesday, Nov. 4 at 8 p.m.
The core trio features Scott Rednor on guitar, Michael Jude on bass, and John Michel on drums. The three East Coasters east have moved on to the Vail and Roaring Fork Valleys in Colorado for both the mountains and the music. For the past 15 years, Michael and John have steadily played with the John Oates Band and many other world renown musicians, while Scott has been involved in recording and touring projects on a national level for more than 20 years.
Rednor met Popper at the HORDE festivals in the mid-90s and they toured together. Jono Manson is from New York City and helped pioneer the Nightingales/Wetlands uprising that spawned Phish, Blues Traveler, Spin Doctors, and many more successful bands. Rednor had opened up for High Plains Drifter, which was a super group of sorts, fronted by Manson, featuring members of a few of these bands.
After that first show in which Popper and Manson joined Brothers Keeper, Popper brought into play the idea of doing a project together, which led the band to write and record the album Todd Meadows. This debut from the band is an “Americana/Rock n Roll” album, featuring five lead singers and a wide range of musical styles. Other guests on the album include Jason Crosby (Phil Lesh and Friends), Glenn McClelland (Ween), DJ Logic, Joel Guzman, and Rob Eaton Jr.
The band kicks off their show at Havana at 8 p.m.; ‘Doors Will Call’ at 6 p.m.. Tickets are General Admission Standing Only, must be 21 or older, $25 in advance and $30 day of show
