The Darnell Boys
(Click on the photo to download a larger, high-resolution version of it)
As the name implies, The Darnell Boys are a bona fide family band.
Siblings Caleb, Gus, and Austin play a steadfastly authentic blend of blues, country and other such traditional sounds,
taking cues from legends like Howlin' Wolf, Ray Charles and Otis Redding to create a uniquely soulful sound.
At the heart of the music is a shared history that cannot be substituted with any amount of outsider talent.
Austin Darnell on vocals, harmonica, and rhythm guitar;

Elijah Neesmith on bass;
Patrick Weise on misc. percussion and singing saw.
