The Brothers Comatose is a five-piece bluegrass band based out of San Francisco, California. The band consists of brothers Ben and Alex Morrison, who play guitar and banjo, respectively, along with Gio Benedetti on the bass, Philip Brezina with the violin, and Ryan Avellone on the Mandolin. Born in Petaluma, California, frontman Ben Morrison along with his brother, Alex Morrison began playing guitar and singing songs at age 12, taking a liking to Rock and Roll. The brothers grew up around music, hosting music parties. “The Morrison house was a gathering place for local musicians – everyone would bring an instrument, call out tunes, call out changes, and just play for hours” says Brothers Comatose bassist, Giovanni Benedetti The band began with the two brothers doing arrangements of songs by bands such as Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, and Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Somewhere in the Wasatch Mountains, during the cold winter months, a rowdy group of ski bums and hippies gathered in the belly of a warm house. Drawn together by a common love of snow, fun, and bluegrass, they set out to howl at the moon and dance through the night in hopes of shaking a storm loose from the heavens to cover up the the stones and ice, and to wash clean the filthy air in the Salt Lake Valley. They sang and danced until they were drenched in sweat and their bodies ached. They sang songs from The Grateful Dead. They sang songs from Michael Jackson. They sang Katy Perry. They sang Lady Gaga. They sang Creedence Clearwater Revival. They sang Taylor Swift. They sang The Talking Heads. They sangUsher. They sang Avicii. They sang Britney Spears. They sang Aretha Franklin. They sang all the songs they knew and then they sang songs they wrote. They sang songs about wandering the desert. They sang songs about drinking whisky. They sang about the lies they've been told. They sang about the love they've lost. The love they've gained. They sang about the endless destruction that they simply don't understand. They sang about Chickens. ... And from that night a new style was born... The style of Partygrass. Pixie and The Partygrass Boys
