The CD 'Acoustical Bookends' is a collection of songs recently released during the summer of 2004. The CD has a mixture of beautiful harmonious songs and instrumentation as well as some kicking fun rockers! Some of the songs on this CD are waiting for approval to be released in an International Film! This CD has something for everyone. Enjoy It! Bio The Grab Brothers Band hails from the musical hotbed of Boston/Cape Cod. Original Duo and now featured as a 'Power Trio' (Acoustic & Rock). A powerful 3-piece rock and roll outfit with an equally potent penchant for hook-laden rockers, and riveting excitement to their most infectious ballads. There is a vital chemistry at the core of their gutsy musical style. It encompasses an intriguing blend of an early Genesis infused with a Jethro Tullish Celtic taste and a bit of The Grateful Dead influence. Just catchy straight out rock-n-roll! 'These guys not only have the ability to give you hard driving no-nonsense rock, but also can slow the pace to eloquently strum a few acoustic gems! And when the brothers sing together, their vocal harmonies are just amazing!'
