History Of Brewgrass
Since the early 1800′s, music has been an integral part of the Brewer family. The tradition continues in the talents of Gary Brewer. Gary exemplifies the new generation of bluegrass artists who have a deep respect for the roots of bluegrass and old time mountain music, but are willing to put their own personal stamp on the music.
Gary Brewer has worked hard to put the ‘Brewgrass’ stamp on his music, becoming known as a singer, guitarist and songwriter to be reckoned with. The determination and hard work have paid off, as Gary and the Ramblers have appeared on the Nashville Network, plus numerous television and radio shows all over the country, including an appearance at the Lincoln Center. Gary and the band are currently touring 30 plus states on a regular basis. Since 1988, they have performed over 300 show dates a year, an achievement in any genre, but astounding for a bluegrass group.
Gary has been noted as one of the finest lead singers to come along in a quite a while, receiving high praise from major reviewers and national stars in the music business. His guitar picking is creative and powerful, with the ability to go from rock solid rhythms to smooth, tasteful yet powerful solos.
Gary comes by his talent naturally; his Grandfather, Finley J. Brewer Sr. of Roan Mountain, Tennessee, was part of the original Carter Family troupe in the late 1920′s.
Gary’s father, Finley J. (Jim) Brewer Jr., has been playing music since 1950 and has become a special attraction on Gary’s live show dates as well as Gary’s son’s: Wayne and Mason. When they join the Ramblers on stage, a special thing happens, whether they sing a good ol’ gospel quartet number or a hard driving ballad, it always leaves the crowd wanting more.
In addition to Jim’s musical talents, he has a full workload with Gary and the Ramblers as Road Manager and personal bus driver. Jim also assists Gary in bookings and personal management.
Gary’s determination and hard work have earned him a great deal of respect, with fellow musicians, fans and promoters. As a prolific composer, Gary’s songs have become an important part of his career and success in the industry.
