Biography

The Brandos are probaly the best live rockband of the USA. They’re music is a mixture of roots-rock, american-civil-war-folk, irish folk and with their new album - Over The Border (2006) - also mexican folk. It has been nearly eighteen years since this New York quartet - featuring original members Dave Kincaid on vocals and guitars and Ernie Mendillo on bass, along with later additions Frank Giordano (guitar, vocals), and former Del Lords’ drummer Frank Funaro - unleashed their trademark guitar-rock sound to the world. The band’s 1987-released debut Honor Among Thieves was received with enormous critical and public acclaim. That same year, The Gavin Report dubbed them “Best New American Band”, Rolling Stone ran a full-page story praising their talents, and Time Magazine clinched it with their quote “THE BRANDOS roots run deep and offer great nourishment.”—
