Summer Tour  

The time has come again to get off the rock and head north. Taking some time off and away from Key West has proved to be an important balance in my life helping me to maintain my health and sanity. I am very much looking forward to taking a drive, spending some time with family, reconnecting with old friends, making new friends and playing music in many locations, surfing, paddle-boarding, and kite-boarding...

First stop will be Ocean City, MD where I will play 2 dates (7/26&27) at Princess Royale Hotel on the beach.

Then to the Jersey shore to play a few dates with Vince Bergamo and Ginger Coyle.

Then home to Bethlehem, PA for Musikfest (http://musikfest.org/).

Then August 14th, Back in OCMD at Madfish, and the 2 more dates at Princess Royale.

Then out to Lignum, VA for Mustafa Akabar's Memorial Mustock Festival (8/23, 24)

Then out to Outter Banks, NC for Labor Day weekend, 2 dates at Waterman's Grille at REAL Watersports Kiteboarding Resort.

September in Charleston Area, Folly Beach, SC and possibly Myrtle Beach, SC as well...

Looking to pick up gigs and fill in my calendar with work along the way. If you are interested in booking me as solo, duo or maybe even full band, or if you have any leads on booking, please email Ross@RossBrownMusic.com.

Northeast Tour 2018 

The time has come to leave Key West for the summer. I will be playing 5 dates at Mojito Bay tiki bar in Put-In-Bay, OH. Then meeting up with my family in PA. We are heading to the Delaware seashore for a long-weekend family vacation. Then back to Bethlehem, PA to spend some time with family and friends and to enjoy and perform at the Bethelehem Musikfest (http://musikfest.org) with The Philadelphia Funk Authority. Sometime in the third week of August, I will be headed south. Perhaps some gigs in the Wilmington, NC are TBA. Then further south toward the Charleston, SC area where I hope to find a place to stay in Folly Beach. Looking forward to plenty of surfing. Hoping to play as many gigs as possible, break into a new market, and make some new connections in the greater Charleston area. Please reach out if you know anyone in these areas who would like to book me as a solo. If the opportunity arises, we may even line up a mini-tour for SOUL BUSH.
