Morrison Brothers Band to Shake Up Lincoln Center and The Living Room

Southern Rockers to Appear With Jazz Legend Wynton Marsalis at Private Mid-town Event, and in Concert on the Lower East Side

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 05, 2013) - The Morrison Brothers Band brings Nashville to the Big Apple by-way-of-Washington this weekend. The band joins jazz legend Wynton Marsalis at Lincoln Center on Saturday for an invitation-only performance. But the public can check them out on Friday at 10:30 p.m. at the Living Room on the Lower East Side. It's their sixth show in Manhattan, but their soulful Southern rock sound remains the same.

It's a sound that has made a name for the band in their hometown, Washington, DC. Since brothers Willie and Truman Morrison joined forces with fellow brothers Matt and Kevin Nolan in 2008, they've released three full length albums, and conquered every premier venue in the capital city. In July, they returned to Washington's 9:30 Club, ranked #1 on Rolling Stone's list of "The Best Big Rooms in America," to premiere their latest album, "State of the Union." The album's first single "Little Miss Whiskey" is receiving extensive air play on DC's top country station, WMZQ 98.7 FM.

But the two sets of brothers aren't alone -- former Nashville Star contestant Alyson Gilbert holds her own on the microphone, and fills the room with sultry, Southern vocals. Adding multi-instrumentalist Dave Benson to the fold in 2012, the band's sound is captivating an ever-growing audience of fans.

Concertgoers can expect jamming guitar riffs and room filling rock and roll as The Morrison Brothers Band brings the Mason-Dixon Line a little closer to Manhattan.
