Band Of Brothers - Our Mission
As a band of brothers we are in this for many reasons, but mostly because we feel led to explore and share our passion and talent with others. It's not just a fun idea or a passing urge...it's what we were destined to do before we came here. We believe a family is given this kind of powerful tool for a purpose. And our mission is to find out why and not look back.
Although we are just as dedicated to this goal as anybody, we won't follow the crowd just to get in the right doors. We are not able to hit the clubs every night and we refuse to just barely scrape by. We are not willing to put our own desire for personal success in front of our responsibility to provide stability for our families. We can't hit the road for weeks leaving little to no time for our families. And we will not get lost in the cut-throat game that can be the music business. In a very real way, we are already at a disadvantage for taking this stance.
But still we do. We have put deep thought into this and we have decided together that there is a way to enjoy the positive aspect of the music world without the negative effects that are almost always attached. And it all comes down to doing things a little differently. We know we won't be able to devote nearly as much of our time, energy, and resources to the pursuit of a place in the music spotlight as 99% of serious bands do. But we are convinced that because we are willing to take a stand for the MOST important things in life first, we will be blessed with opportunities and open doors that would normally be reserved for those who can "live the life" fully. In no way do we belittle artists and groups that pour blood and sweat into the pursuit... in fact we greatly admire them for their tenacity. We simply say that we are in a different place and that we are committed to doing it our way. If we can not achieve what we strive for in music without first giving due attention our basic responsibilities, then we are content that we are not meant for that goal and will happily go on playing music however we can.
None of us can picture doing this without the bond that brothers have. It just wouldn't mean the same, wouldn't feel the same, and definitely wouldn't sound the same if it didn't come out of the mouths and fingers of brothers who have been singing and playing together in every setting imaginable for as far back as we can remember. We are naturally competitive but also fiercely protective and supportive and frankly we just have a blast when we hook up. We've enjoyed moderate success from year to year but now are hitting a whole new commitment level to making this happen.
To get where we know we can go we need fellow believers on our team. If you subscribe to the thought that things don't always have to be done the "expected" way to actually come to life... If you value, over anything else, the innate responsibility that moms and dads have as sole providers, teachers, and protectors of their children... If you know deep down that it's just right to pursue a dream that can bring fulfillment and purpose to your life... Then help us spread our music and mission and together we'll make wildly cool things happen.
