The Mulligan Brothers to bring Alabama sound to AMU
On Friday, March 13, Music Bach’s Concert series will host indie folk band The Mulligan Brothers. From 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., the band will be filling the Atrium of the Alumni Memorial Union with meaningful lyrics and engaging tunes.
Admission will be free and community members are invited to attend. Lunches may be purchased in The Cave or individuals may pack a lunch.
The Mulligan Brothers perform quality music with lyrics that tell great stories through solid songwriting, soft vocals, mournful fiddle-playing and soothing guitar. An upright bass made out of vintage suitcases will also be one of the stars of the show.
The up-and-coming band based out of Mobile, Alabama features members Ross Newell, Greg DeLuca, Gram Rea and Ben Leininger. They play an original mix of Americana, folk rock and country. The group’s first album, “The Mulligan Brothers,” was voted “Alabama Album of 2013” by readers of Mod Mobilian. Their latest album, “Via Portland,” which addresses topics such as murder and longing, lends an additional depth to their melodies.
The Mulligan Brothers’ sound is predominantly acoustic, reflecting old, timeless music with a modern contemporary twist that’s all their own.
With original lyrics and sound, the Gulf Coast band strives to make their music enjoyable for album listeners and for those who have been able to catch a live performance. Each song is a carefully crafted melody with an intricate story. String player Gram Rea stresses the authenticity of the sound, saying, “If we can’t play it live, we didn’t play it on the album.”
