This Is Where You Wanna Be
The Brawner Brothers is a dynamic jazz -funk group that infuses Blues, R&B and Latin elements into it's extensive repertoire. The group has been highly acclaimed over the years by audiences and critics, while performing at some of the most prestigious music venues around the country. Kenny Brawner, a keyboardist, vocalist and composer leads the group, which includes his brother Everett Brawner on bass. A guitarist, drummer and percussionist round out a very strong rhythm section that is complimented by a powerful but fluid and smooth horn section. Kenny plays his own distinctive style of Jazz, Funk, R&B and Blues. John Wilson of the New York Times once described his style as rich, romantic with bold striking figures and a strong stomping beat. Curt Davis of the New York Post described Kennys writing, playing and singing as strong and assertive. For nearly a decade he led and composed for a jazz-funk recording band called Raw Sugar. During that period, one of his compositions was chosen, Showstopper of the Week, on WBLS, in New York, and another production collaboration with Onaje Allan Gumbs achieved a large degree of success. The Brawner Brothers have appeared in recent years, backing up B.B. King in a Wendys Hamburger commercial and have regularly worked in Kings clubs around the country backing up Stanley Abernathy the lead trumpet player in Mr. Kings band. They have also appeared regularly at the St. Nicholas Pub and Mintons Playhouse two of Harlem's premiere jazz venues, at Smoke, an upper west side venue known for it's high quality jazz and at Terra Blues and The Cutting Room, two of downtown Manhattan's renowned music clubs.
