ABOUT

Brian Gross (BG) is a professional performing musician/band leader/vocalist and guitar teacher with 40+ years experience. I recently moved from the Washington DC Metropolitan Area to Wilmington NC. I'm looking to reform my longtime blues/swing/rockabilly band, BG & the Mojo Hands. I have performed as a country acoustic blues solo/duo act with harmonica player/vocalist. I'm also interested in opportunities for joining other bands.

Produced three CDs:
BG & the Mojo Hands Live at Blues Alley
BG & the Mojo Hands, I Don't Believe
Brian Gross Solo Acoustic Blues,
