California country, what could be better? Brawley is a mix of San Diego-based working musicians with decades of history and music projects, including the Hacienda Brothers, Smith’s Ranch Boys, The Forbidden Pigs, and Rancho Deluxe. Their original songs blend seamlessly with country classics, and while being throughly modern, the influence of honky-tonk heroes like Faron Young, Merle Haggard, Ray Price, and Buck Owens is clearly there. Melodic harmony vocals by Nena Anderson and Adrian Demain are accented by the expressive pedal steel work of David Berzansky. For dancers, a solid rhythm section keeps things rocking! Brawley will make you smile while you’re crying in your beer and have you signing up for those two-step classes you always wanted to take.
