If you saw them at last years Jazz and Blues festival you probably havent forgotten the funky Brickhouse band and the great impression they made on the dancing cheering crowd
– The Times
“Brickhouse is the epitome of 'Live Music Rules'. These guys played our 2007 festival and definitely *knocked 'em dead!* They played a huge part in making this the most successful festival we've ever had. What a headliner. Leave room for people to dance, you won't be able to keep them sitting. For a guaranteed draw and a happy crowd, it's a 'lock' with Brickhouse.”
– Keith Alexander, Artistic Director Edge of the World Music Festival
2004 Best Canadian Live Band/All Genres”
– Real Blues Magazine
Brickhouse is an original band with a vision. A vision that one day live music will rule the dayagain!! For 12 years, fans have hummed, sung and even lived the songs that bring them back time and time again. Singer Rob Bracken invites you into the kitchen, where sights, smells and sounds are tossed on a groove and served on a platter. Never without a house gig, always a good time.
Dubbed as Vancouvers busiest band (Storman Norman, Rock 101 Sunday Blues) Brickhouse has won the respect among musicians as a band that makes a difference, where the song is the focus, accompanied by individual inspiration. On any given night, old and new friends share the stage to play their part in the classic Brickhouse experience.
With a list of original material that rivals the number of keys on a full size piano, Brickhouse delivers a message that attracts the young at heart. With over 200 shows a year, its no wonder fans choose the set list before the band does.
Now a six piece ensemble, the sounds are forever evolving into a groove thatll knock your socks off!!
