The Band’s Back Together!

During high school and some of college, I played in a band with my best friends. We played in 12 different states to audiences as big as 7000 and as small as 7, and everything in between. It’s been 20 years now, but at Christmastime, we were all in town to visit family, so we decided to play a private show for our families – a small reunion show. It went really well, so we thought, maybe we should start collaborating again on new music.

In 2020, collaboration on music is a great possibility through technology. In times of “social distancing” it becomes even a greater opportunity. So we are working on some new tunes. But as many others have done during this COVID-19 pandemic, we are starting to put out the live performances from this reunion concert.

This first offering is a fun song called, “Palm.” It’s got a “That Thing You Do” sort of vibe to it. In a moment where there’s a lot of uncertainty, and news is bad, we hope it’s something that can bring a smile to your face. Check it out… and follow “Brother John” band on Facebook and Instagram!



Andrew Osenga- I’m on your side

September 3, 2011 Leave a comment

A while back my friend put some footage on an external drive for me to edit together. He said he didn’t have time to do it, so naturally like a can’t-say-no type of guy, I said that I’d do it. Well, it’s taken me a long time to produce this first song, but here it is. I liked obscuring the title. That was fun!

It’s Andrew Osenga- “I’m on your side.” I’ve been a fan of Andy O since the days of The Normals. My buddies and I would always catch them in concert when they were within a 250 mile radius from us, I’d say. Some of those friends of mine were the ones shooting this video.  Since those days, Andy has played with a host of others including:

Jars of Clay, Andrew Peterson, Jonny Diaz, Sarah Kelly, Katie Herzig, JJ Heller, Bebo Norman, Matthew Perryman Jones, Emily Deloach, Derek Webb, Jon Troast, Ben Shive, Jill Phillips, Laura Story, Adam Agin, Christopher Williams, Shaun Groves, Indelible Grace, Caedmon’s Call

I love his solo stuff. I’m hoping to book him some time for a concert. The guy’s got some skills. Here’s his new project in the works.  You can check out Andy on: For now, enjoy this song!
