The Owens Brothers BandBorn to a music-teaching mother and a librarian-turned-Congressman father, the Owens Brothers could be a classical ensemble – each Owens brother plays a stringed instrument and has sung choral music. But… they like to rock. Therefore, there is now OBB – The Owens Brothers Band.
OBB blends original melodies and rhythms with topical lyrics, hot solos and harmonies to create powerful and memorable pieces. Songs like “Man O’War,” “If A Woman Had Made The World”, “Love Is The Way” and “Poverty Sucks” are compelling and danceable social statements.

Solidarity Singers“We are a street chorus, not a concert choir. Our preferred venue is a picket line. We try to lift the spirits of people engaged in struggle and help them to carry on. Only a few of us know how to read music, but we all know which side we’re on.”
Over the past twenty years, the Solidarity Singers have appeared hundreds of times on picket lines, at rallies for labor and other progressive causes, and in occasional concert settings, including the annual May Day celebrations at the Botto House/American Labor Museum, and many others.
