HomeBrewed is very excited to introduce our new drummer Cameron Gray. Cameron is a current dental student and has been playing percussion since the age of 7, mainly playing in school and church bands. His favorite genre of music is indie rock and likes to collect records in his free time. Cameron will be sharing drummer duties with Jacob as schedules allow (for some reason dental school seems like it can be a busy time!). We appreciate the willingness of both Cameron and Jacob to share their time and talent for others.
MUSIC WITH A MISSION!
.......to our Iowa City-based band "HomeBrewed". We are having a blast playing Rockabilly, Rock and Blues for receptive crowds to whom we are indebted for their support. Having fun is key as we play tunes from the likes of Johnny Cash, Elvis, Stray Cats, Keb Mo, LIttle Walter, Queen, George Thorogood, Eric Clapton, Sonny Boy Williamson and Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats. We love all kinds of music, thus we have chosen to play music that goes back to the intersection of blues, gospel and country and play the songs that led to rock and rock and roll. We use our music to also give back for all of the blessings we have had in life and play primarily for fundraisers for charitable organizations. Please let us know if you have a fundraiser in the Iowa City area that would benefit from having live music.
