An indefatigable live act known for their hard-partying ways on the road, JEFF the Brotherhood continue to let it all hang out with marathon sets on tour.
JEFF THE BROTHERHOOD IN CONCERT:
Brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall grew up in Nashville surrounded by music -- their father Robert Ellis Orrall is a successful producer and songwriter who's penned hits for Reba McEntire and Lindsay Lohan. In high school the pair formed JEFF, and in 2001 they released their crowd-funded debut album I Like You to critical acclaim. After gaining notoriety with several side projects like Be Your Own Pet and The Sex, the brothers moved to Chicago to focus their energies solely on JEFF, which they renamed JEFF the Brotherhood. Following several limited-release albums and extensive touring in the mid- '00s, the band scored a breakthrough in 2009 with their fifth album Heavy Days. The record was a huge critical success, leading to a collaboration with Jack White and a deal with Warner Music Group. Their rise continued in 2012 with Hypnotic Nights, a Dan Auerbach-produced album that was streamed on NPR Music and landed the band on late night TV shows including Letterman and Jimmy Fallon. A vigorous live act known for their unbridled enthusiasm in concert, Jeff the Brotherhood continue to rock fans on their jam-filled tours.
