Founded by twin brothers who have been playing together in various formats for 35 years, Brian (guitars, lead vocals) and Erik (keyboards, backing vocals) have been making music together since the age of 12. They have joined forces in several projects including 1881 which produced two full-length albums and played extensively throughout Wisconsin between 2001 and 2010.
The Deep Blue Crew draws inspiration from the likes of:
Blues/Rock: Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, Albert King, Little Walter, Freddie King, Magic Sam, Jimi Hendrix, Santana, Tab Benoit, Greg Koch, Morphine, and many more
Surf: Chantays, Link Wray, Ventures, Dick Dale, Trashmen, Bel Airs, and many more
Reggae/Island: Bob/Ziggy/Stephen Marley, Stick Figure, Harry Belafonte, Peter Tosh, Slightly Stoopid, and many more
Eddie Van Halen made Brian pick up the guitar at an early age. Stevie Ray Vaughan made him pick it back up later with a vengeance. Discovering he was Blues-Infused from the beginning, he's realized his passion and it shows in every note.
Brian's twin brother Erik is a shredding keyboardist, excellent singer, composer, recording engineer, and all around mega talent. Come witness the twins in action!
Charlie "The Clock" brings high energy and nuanced rhythms to every drumming performance, effortlessly picking up any song you throw at him. He's been there, done that and is ready for more.
Influenced by rock, blues and jazz, David began playing in bands by age 15. Ever since, he has been performing and collaborating with some great musicians throughout SE Wisconsin and winning several “Battle of the Bands” contests in the process. A highly versatile player, David is always looking to expand his musical horizons and is excited to be a part of the The Deep Blue Crew.
A true veteran of the instrument, John's sax playing adds depth and dynamics to the The Deep Blue Crew's sound. He trades solos with the Molstad brothers and fits into the rhythm with ease. John is a must-see!
