ROCK - Classic Rock
From the barrios of Bilbao to the Windy City (of Chicago), this power trio emerges with a rocking unusual force that only those who have been playing rock music since early teenage hood can exhibit. Its name takes after Gov’t Mule’s famous song ‘Broke down on the Brazos’ with the purpose to capture the flavor of southern rock.

The CD is a tribute of 10 covers to their classic influences in blues and rock music that range from “Big Joe” Williams to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Presently, the band is working on their second album “Welcome to Los Bra
