The Almost Brothers Band is a smokin' Southern Rock tribute band that performs the music of the Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, ZZ Top, Marshall Tucker, Charlie Daniels, Gov't Mule, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Blackfoot, The Black Crowes, and more.

In the past three years the band has performed at many major festivals, numerous corporate events, Harley Davidson dealerships and bike runs, dozens of Chicagoland clubs, and venues too numerous to mention. The Almost Brothers Band has rocked events such as the Naperville Ribfest; the Woodridge Jubilee; Rockford's On The Waterfront festival; Peoria's Budweiser Grand Nationals; the Mid-America Vette Fest; Tribute-a-Palooza; the Schaumburg Flyer's Alexian Field; Sierra Club, Children's, and Cancer Research benefits; major university alumni parties; union parties; HOG chapter events; and much more.

The band played to 10,000 as the opening act for the Little River Band in Peoria during the 2009 Budweiser Grand Nationals; headlined the 2008 Illinois State HOG Rally and the 2008 Illinois Freedom Run, and supported Charlie Daniels and .38 Special at the Wisconsin State Fair. Other notable performances include the 2007 Rockfest in Cadott, Wisconsin, and supporting gigs with KISS, Three Doors Down, Tragically Hip, Third Eye Blind, Hinder, Gov't Mule, Chicago, Eve 6, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Blue Oyster Cult, Heart, and Collective Soul.
