The Felice Brothers Folk it Up at The Taft Theatre

The band is well-known for their raucous, bring the house down kind of shows that have amassed them a cult like fan following. Consequence of Sound said their live show "pack enough energy to wow first time concertgoers and keep their diehard fans sated.” SPIN hailed them as "the new stars of Americana" and NPR have been ardent supporters - covering them since the beginning of their career.  

The Felice Brothers released their latest full length Favorite Waitress via Dualtone Records and garnered praise from Rolling Stone and American Songwriter. This album finds them returning to their folksier roots after recording at Mike Mogis and Conor Oberst's Arc Studios in Omaha, Nebraska (first time they properly recorded in a studio).

We caught up with The Felice Brothers prior to the show on Sunday October 12th at The Taft Theatre!


Give us some background on The Felice Brothers…
Five guys from New York's Hudson Valley. Been together playing music for more than eight years, traveling around the world sharing our songs with people like you. We have a new record out called 'Favorite Waitress' and give mostly excellent hugs.  

What can we expect from a live show?
We expect you to enjoy yourselves immensely and leave with a smile on your face.  

Any advice for local musicians?
Play every day. Music gives back what you put into it, I think.  

What is next for The Felice Brothers?
European tour! And then, Thanksgiving with the family. That's the extent of our plans for the year.
