Weber Brothers Band back to rock with Brooke Wylie

E-mail Print PDF

The Weber Brothers Band returned to rock the Geomatic Attic, Monday, May 6. I only caught the end The Weber Brothers wind up their May 6 show. Photo by Richard Ameryof their set, which was full of old school ’50s and ’60s ish rock and roll including a lot of originals and a couple new ones.

 But I arrived in time for them to bring up Brooke Wylie, who they have been touring with and her back-up singer/ bassist Sol James.

 “Oh my God, the Weber Brothers  have invited me up on stage to play with them,” enthused Wylie who took command of the shadowy stage to croon a lovely country number from her CD, which the Weber Brothers also play on.

  An audience member called out a request for  “Left Right, Left Right,”  the title track from their double CD a few years ago. Guitarist Sam Weber grinned “We’ll get to that.” Which they did eventually after letting every one have their solo including frenetic  keyboardist Shai “Cookie ” Peer bouncing between his two keyboards  in the shadows.

 Their drummer Marcus Brown came to the front of the stage to add a third vocal harmony before returning behind the drums.

They wound up their set with a trio of popular hits including  a hot version of blues classic “Who Do You Love,” on which  Sam WBrooke Wylie joins the Weber Brothers in stage. Photo by Richard Ameryeber jumped on top of  R his brother Ryan Weber’s stand -up bass and and played  a solo while balancing on it.

 They returned for an encore of  “Roll over Beethoven,” then brought  Wylie and Sol James back on stage for a sweet version of Paul McCartney’s “Maybe I’m Amazed,” featuring Brooke Wylie on vocals, Sol James on bass and Ryan Weber taking over one of the keyboards.
