Are you connected with us through social media yet?  Here's a fun reason why you might want to be - we put up video and photos and other fun things on social media that are not always shared on our blog... Last weekend's shows on 5/1/15 at Hershey Family Restaurant, 5/2/15 at a private party in WV, and 5/2/15 at Brewer's Alley are a perfect example of fun that you could have seen earlier if you were connected with us on Facebook , Twitter , Tumblr , Instagram , Google+ , YouTube , etc. (click on each link and friend/follow/connect with us now... while you're thinking about it  :-)  )....  Here's some of the fun that you may have missed...

Kicking Festival Season off right - and more!

Posted by Trudi Brown on April 29, 2015. 0 Comments

Saturday 4/25/15 was a blast - kicked off this year's festival season with a bang as Bushmaster performed at Battley Harley-Davidson's Spring Open House from 11:30am till 2:30pm - then we entertained from 7pm till 10pm at one of our favorite venues, Lost Rhino Brewing Co.   We were thrilled to have long time friend Al "Bundy" Austin sit in on guitar at Battley, and our friend (and boss for the night) Chris Drummond sit in at Lost Rhino, he even surprised us by asking that the band sign his bass drum head/memorabilia art at the end of the night...  Here are some pictures and videos from the day's activities... Do you have some pictures or video that you took that day (or other performances) that you can share too?  We'd love to see them...

New live album available - get your digital copy today!

Posted by Trudi Brown on February 11, 2015. 4 Comments

"A Bushmaster show featuring the guitar virtuosity of Gary Brown is always exciting. The excitement increases when you know the blues band is filming a DVD. This is the recipe for the exciting Bushmaster show tonight at the Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club. The show is scheduled to start at 7:30. Come watch one of the best blues band in the Mid Atlantic region return to the Washington area where his musical career started..." - Mike Spain, Examiner  (read full article here)

This is how this night of music was anticipated to occur... Yes, the band performed, they had a great night... Yes the people came, danced, had a blast... Yes it was all recorded... The audio came out GREAT, the video not so much...  

So here's to making lemonade... 

This live album captured the sounds, energy, and fun from that night's performance.  Available for digital download only......
