The Ries Brothers (pronounced ”Rees”), a duo from St Petersburg, FL, blend rock, blues, jam, funk, and reggae into a soulful-sophisticated sound. Older brother Charlie (27) sings lead vocals while simultaneously playing drums and keyboard bass giving the band its unique and full sound. Younger brother Kevin Jordan (24) completes the band’s “sonic creativity” on guitar, ukulele, and melodica, and provides background vocals. The band started playing the Florida bar circuit as young teenagers where they were discovered by the band Chicago and taken out on two regional tours prompting them to leave school and focus on music full-time.

The Brother’s inimitable live performances have captured fans across the musical landscape leading to marquee support slots and major festival bookings.
