In over 20 years of touring and gigs, Brickhouse has established itself as Vancouver’s tightest and funkiest representatives of rhythm & blues. A party on stage, Brickhouse has been dubbed as "Vancouver’s busiest band" (Storman Norman, Rock 101 Sunday Blues), and for good reason. With their devotion to bringing across the genuine emotion behind classic and original blues funk music, Brickhouse has won respect among musicians as a band that makes a difference.
Brickhouse is a six-piece band with not only great playing and singing 'chops' but also lots of personality, as exemplified by the charismatic founding member and infamous front man, vocalist, and harmonica player Rob Bracken, who can often be found mingling and joking with the crowd on and off stage. The fun nature of the band does not negate the fact that they include some of Vancouver’s highest caliber and hardest working musicians, qualities that helped to earn them the spot as house band at the legendary Yale Hotel blues bar for over 10 year.
With a list of original material that rivals the number of keys on a full size piano, Brickhouse delivers a message that attracts the young, and the young at heart. With over 200 shows a year, it’s no wonder fans choose the set list before the band does.
