$1500 - $7500 per event
unBrothers play the best Vintage Rock/R&B. As recording artists & songwriters, with international touring experience, they put their unique spin on Vinyl-era classics and mash it up with the odd current hit & original songs.

The band formed around Hammond organist John Freund. A multi-instrumentalist, John's Hammond playing gives the unBrothers their old-school authenticity. He also sings lead and back-up vocals. John has two CD's as bandleader with 'Bigger than a Breadbox', and has recorded or appeared with Paramore, Mike Jackson and the Soul Providers (later known as the Dap Kings), Rod Morgenstein, Deep Banana Blackout and well-known NYC-based bands The Healers, and Xmembers. Very few people are capable of John's level of expression and ability to work the Hammond into any setting.

Lead vocals and guitar are in the highly competent hands of John Alden, a long time band mate, and music school friend of Mr. Freund's. John performs over 200 shows a year, with vocal chops on a par with the greats. He is known for his range & versatility. His latest, self-penned, CD release is Dreams Don't Lie. John runs the talent agency, Alden Entertainment.

Dave Gellis has been playing lead guitar for Blood, Sweat & Tears since 1985. During several hiatuses, he has toured and/or recorded with Meat Loaf, Stanley Clarke, Chuck Negron (of Three Dog Night), Phoebe Snow, David Clayton-Thomas, Pieces of a Dream, Roger Glover (of Deep Purple), Dave Valentin, Angela Bofill and many others. This includes numerous television appearances as well as touring throughout the Far East, Europe, Australia and nearly 50 states. He is the featured soloist on Roger Glover's 1984 release, "Mask".

Jeff Gellis has been playing bass for the past several decades, a pursuit that has taken him all over the world. Playing in the house band at Preachers in NYC with harmonica virtuoso Will Galison, the club would regularly be filled with the likes of Paul Butterfield and Jaco Pastorious. Later Gellis became house bassist at SOBs in NYC. Along the way, Jeff was playing with Phoebe Snow, members of the Saturday Night Live band, Steely Dan, Jackson Brown, Ronnie Spector as being leader on a number of projects. In the late 80's, Jeff teamed up with brother Dave Gellis as the rhythm section for Blood Sweat and Tears, touring all around the globe and appearing in major venues and TV programs including Top of the Pops. The Tonight Show, Joan Rivers Show, and many others. Jeff also plays double bass, is a producer, writer and arranger.

Dave Hirschberg has been a drummer for over 30 years. Coming from a family of accomplished musicians, music is in his blood. A groove drummer with a style blended from jazz, blues, rock and metal gives him a unique sound but what sets him apart is his ability to sing lead in almost any style of music. From soul to blues to good ole rock n roll. Dave continues to play all around the NY/NJ area with Shaved Ham, blues guitarist Steve Johnson as well as NY Blues Hall Of Famers Dave Fields and Nikki Armstrong just to name a few. Dave is also an accomplished snowboarder, graphic artist and 4 time Emmy Award winner.
