Jeremy Brown - Keyboard
In 2021, Jeremy celebrates 55 years of rock and roll, having played his first paying gig in 1966. Since then, he has always been playing in at least one band.
He recorded his first album in 1969 with a blues band called Catherine’s Horse in which he played a Farfisa organ.
in 1980, Jeremy moved from rural upstate New York to Boston to pursue rock and roll fame.
He played in a well-known folk-rock band, Inside Straight, and then helped form a rock and roll band called Big Sixteen, which was very popular with musicians in Boston.
In 1983, Jeremy accepted an offer to join The Stompers, the most popular band in the region, which had a record deal with Mercury/Polygram. In the summer of 1984, The Stompers toured as the opening act for Billy Idol at large venues, including Saratoga Performing Arts Center, New Haven Colosseum, Philadelphia Spectrum, and more. The Stompers consistently sold out big clubs and opened for many well-known bands including Aerosmith and the Beach Boys.
In early 1990, Jeremy moved to Antrim, New Hampshire where he discovered the legendary Rynborn Blues Club. By 1991, he was a member of the Rynborn house band with local legend, Mississippi Skippy Philbrick.
The Skip Philbrick Blues Band had a glorious 28-year run.
For two tears in the late 90s, Jeremy played with two-time Grammy award-winning Luther “Guitar Jr.” Johnson and the Magic Rockers.
Jeremy considers the highlight of his musical career to be his involvement in the Blue Hill Kickers, a country band that won New Hampshire, New England, and national "Band of the Year" awards, plus many other awards and accolades over a few short years. In 1994, Jeremy won Instrumentalist of the Year on the piano in a national competition in Las Vegas. Incidentally, the Blue Hill Kickers (country) held the record for bar sales at Rynborn (a blues club).
Jeremy's also played with a New Hampshire-based Americana band, Otis and the Elevators for over 20 years.
Meanwhile, The Stompers play four to six gigs per year - selling out every show.
Jeremy moved with his family to Asheville in 2019. Now fully vaccinated, he's looking to play - and play a lot.
