EntSun - Apr. 18, 2015 - NEW YORK -- Balkun Brothers: is an American blues-rock band hailing from Hartford, CT. Originally formed in 2010 by brothers Nick and Steve Balkun, Balkun Brothers has been described as "… Spectacular torch-bearers for rockin' American blues… The band brings a raw, soulful and energetic personality that is a fresh sound for blues and rock 'n roll." -Theday.com.

Mixing traditional styles of delta and electric blues, with heavy modern rock and funk grooves, the Balkun Brothers are crafting a unique sound and style all their own. The band is fusing the past with the present and pushing the sonic bounds of blues into the future. Though the band's sound is deeply rooted in blues tradition, Balkun Brothers draw from a vast range of influences. The band's live shows and in-studio recordings seamlessly transition between blues, rock, funk, jam, psychedelia and everything in-between.

Founding members Steve Balkun (guitar/vocals) and Nick "The Hammer" Balkun (drums/percussion/vocals) are gaining followers across the world with their gritty hard-rockin' swagger. Balkun Brothers are becoming known for their explosive live shows and are quickly evolving into one of the United States' premier blues-rock acts.

Balkun Brothers was voted the 'Best Blues Band In Connecticut'  two years in a row, in 2013 and 2014, by CT.com and the Connecticut Music Awards. The band was nominated in three categories in 2013 and five categories in 2014 at the Connecticut Music Awards (a CTMA record). The group also won the 2014 Connecticut Blues Society Band Challenge and the 2013 Massachusetts Blues Society Solo/Duo Competition. As a solo act, Steve Balkun was named the winner of the 2012 Connecticut Blues Society Solo/Suo Competition, as well as being a grand finalist at the 2013 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. Steve, was also hand selected by blues-rock great, Joe Bonamassa, as a top ten finalist in the 2013 Guitar Center Bluesmasters Competition and played with Joe Bonamassa and his band in Los Angeles, CA. http://balkunmusic.com/
