Balkun Bros - Recent & Upcoming Shows @ Blue 5
 Balkun Bros 10/20/2017
Balkun Brothers is a psychedelic blues-rock band hailing from Hartford, Connecticut. Originally formed in 2010 by brothers Nick and Steve Balkun, Balkun Brothers has been described as, “Spectacular torch-bearers for rockin’ American blues… The band brings a raw, soulful and energetic personality that is a fresh sound for blues and rock ’n roll.” -Theday.com. Mixing traditional styles of delta and electric blues, with heavy modern rock and funk grooves, the Balkun Brothers are crafting a unique sound and style all their own. Drawing from a vast range of influences, the band’s live shows and in-studio recordings seamlessly transition between blues, rock, funk, jam, psychedelia and everything in-between. Balkun Brothers are becoming known for their explosive live shows and are quickly evolving into one of the United States’ premier blues-rock acts. Balkun Brothers was voted the ‘2015 Best Overall Band In Connecticut’, along with ‘Best Blues Band In Connecticut’ three years in a row, in 2015, 2014 and 2013, by CT.com and the Connecticut Music Awards. The group also won the 2014 Connecticut Blues Society Band Challenge and the 2013 Massachusetts Blues Society Solo/Duo Competition. As a solo act, Steve Balkun was named the winner of the 2012 Connecticut Blues Society Solo/Suo Competition, as well as being a grand finalist at the 2013 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. Steve, was also hand selected by blues-rock great, Joe Bonamassa, as a top ten finalist in the 2013 Guitar Center Bluesmasters Competition and played with Joe Bonamassa and his band in Los Angeles, CA. As Balkun Brothers continues to grow and progress, their following has expanded and an impressive touring schedule has featured them alongside well-know artists such as Johnny Winter, Joe Bonamassa, James Cotton, Popa Chubby, Eric Sardinas, Dopapod, Melvin Seals and JGB, The Mike Dillon Band and many more. The band released their first full-length studio album, “ReDrova”, in January of 2015. The Brothers released their 2nd studio album, entitled “Balkun Brothers”, on October 13th, 2015 on Dixiefrog Records. The album was produced, recorded, and engineered by Popa Chubby.
