The Shoemaker Brothers

Shoemaker Brothers Think all four brothers from Shelton can do is drain halfracks? Think all bands that call Pullman home probably evoke a mix between Sublime, the smell of walking by Abercrombie and Fitch at the mall and the sound of dry heaving? Think again. The Shoemaker Brothers, four siblings originally from Shelton that found their way to Pullman, are the exception. Strings and honesty galore with this band â€" think folk rock pounded out on a cello and violins. Think real musicianship. Think about the possibility you’ve probably never experienced quite anything like the Shoemaker Brothers before. Amidst all that thinking, send a positive thought to the Shoemaker Brothers’ mother, who along with pushing all four of them out into this world, managed three more â€" for a total of seven Shoemaker children. I guess we should just consider ourselves lucky this band isn’t hitting town in a multicolor school bus with Reuben Kincaid behind the wheel. No, far from it. These Shoemaker Brothers should soothe the weary Doyle’s Thursday night crowd like a clean shot of Jameson. And they’ll sound impressive doing it.
