In just a few short months, Alex Carruthers & The Rhythm Brothers have begun to assert themselves as one of the top fresh faces on the local music scene. Alex is by no means a new comer – he’s the drummer in the explosive and popular instrumental band Red Rows as well as the experimental improv outfit Star Trek: The Band. But he’s making a louder impact away from the skins – as the frontman for Alex Carruthers & The Rhythm Brothers (his seat behind the kit is filled by the more than capable Adam Bombardier from Surdaster).

Drawing on a wide array of influences, Alex and his Rhythm Brothers create music that is at once recognizable (there is one song that gets dangerously close to “Five to One” by The Doors before going off in a direction that is anything but Doors-like) but fresh and hip, with an infectious energy that enthralls whomever is in the room at the time. They were added last minute to December’s FunnelFest line-up after an impressive live debut not a month prior, and immediately turned a lot of fickle heads with their charisma and musical passion.

This Wednesday, they’re taking their show from some of their usual comfort zones – such as Phog Lounge and The FM Lounge – to The Manchester Pub, for a showcase all their own. There is no cover at the door, so this is a great chance to check out one of Windsor’s latest bands on the rise. And make no mistake – these guys are not only passionate about their craft, they are true students of the game as well. They get better with each performance and convert new ears every show, to the wonder that is Alex Carruthers & The Rhythm Brothers.
