The Felice Brothers Talk About Their New Album and Being Compared to Bob Dylan
Hailing from upstate New York, the Felice Brothers are no strangers to Connecticut clubs. Or clubs anywhere else in the country, really. They get around. Before they started the band in 2006, they didn't even know how to play musical instruments, but they decided that being a band is what they wanted to do, and they stuck with it and learned the ropes until it became a reality. They played in New York subway stations, farmers markets and restaurants to get started, built a following and moved into the clubs. They played the Newport Folk Festival in 2008 when the power went off, so they took their instruments into the mud and played acoustically. They were willing to do whatever it took to create good times and memorable music, and the fans sensed this and began multiplying.
