MUSIC WITH A MISSION!
Hello from our Iowa City-based band. We are a fun filled, mixed generational group, playing Bluesy Rock and Roll and Rockabilly, mostly in support of non-profit organizations who are helping the less fortunate in society. We play a mix of tunes: from classics by the likes of Johnny Cash, Stray Cats, Keb Mo, LIttle Walter, and, Eric Clapton, to current bands such as Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, Kaleo, and JJ Grey and Mofro as well as some original songs. We love all kinds of music, thus we have chosen to play this variety that respects the roots a of the blues while introducing our audiences to some new music to which they might not be familiar. We use our music to also give back for all of the blessings we have had in life. Please let us know if you have a fundraiser in the Iowa City area that would benefit from having live music.
A HomeBrewed Benefit for the Greatest Small City for the Arts Campaign
FilmScene and The Englert Theatre are in a capital and programmatic campaign to help strengthen their local historic arts venues, expand into new venues and programs, and evolve the ways in which we connect the arts to all of the cultures that make up our community. At its heart, their campaign is about deepening partnership and collaboration in our area and they hope to write an important chapter in the overall vision of Building the Greatest Small City for the Arts. HomeBrewed is an all-star Iowa City rock band that most often dedicates its shows toward raising awareness and funds for nonprofit institutions and efforts. Suggested Donation: $10 adults, $5 kids Information Tables about the Campaign will also be on site
