After coming onto the music scene with their powerful brand of psychedelic rock n' roll, Balkun Brothers are creating a style of music all their own in the USA and worldwide. Founding members Steve Balkun (guitar/vocals) and Nick "The Hammer" Balkun (drums/vocals) were born and raised in Hartford, CT and are gaining followers across the world, becoming known for their high-energy live shows. Balkun Brothers bring a fresh mixture of funk, rock, blues, and intense improvisation that has been impressing crowds from Paris to Amsterdam to Los Angeles including appearances at famed venues such as BB Kings Blues Club in New York City and Cabaret Sauvage in Paris, France.
After being voted 'Best Blues Band in Connecticut' at the Connecticut Music Awards for 4 years in a row (from 2013-2016), the band was most recently awarded 'Best Rock Band in New England' at the 2017 New England Music Awards.
The Balkun Brothers return to their rock and blues roots on the power duo's latest album, The Sun Studio Sessions. The brothers pay tribute to their musical forefathers with songs ranging from fast, up-tempo rock anthems to dirty, sweat-covered, backwoods delta blues.
