The Ries Brothers, a duo from Tampa Bay, FL, blend rock, blues, funk, and reggae into a soulful-sophisticated sound. Older brother Charlie sings lead vocals while simultaneously playing drums and keyboard bass giving the band it’s unique and full sound. Younger brother Kevin Jordan completes the band’s “sonic creativity” on guitar, provides background vocals and co-writes many of their songs. They have twice toured nationally as the opening act for the iconic band CHICAGO. Their first 10 city tour with CHICAGO included a performance at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Last year they did a 15 city tour opening for the late Butch Trucks (Allman Brothers) & The Freight Train Band.
Late last year the brothers completed their first headlining tour, highlighted by a performance at “The House that Les Paul Built,” the legendary Iridium in NYC. The Ries Brothers have also opened for David Cook, Daughtry, Toby Keith, Los Lonely Boys, REO Speedwagon, Little River Band, The Edgar Winter Band & The Family Stone among others.
In the summer of 2013, the boys participated in the exclusive Los Angeles Grammy Museum’s Music Revolution Project. In the summer of 2014 the boys were part of the Van’s Warped Tour in Florida. The Ries Brothers were named by The Tampa Bay Times as one of their favorite artists and by Creative Loafing as a 2016 Breakout Artist. They have released 3 EP’s and a Live Concert DVD. Their first full album will be released this coming fall.
