BUSHMASTER BLUES FEATURING GARY BROWN
Gary Brown, lyricist, composer, guitar player, and vocalist for Bushmaster, is in an energetic, enthusiastic, and natural performer. Born in Washington, DC, and growing up in the DC suburbs of Palmer Park, MD, along with the record collections of his parents, Brown was surrounded by the sounds of such local artists as Chuck Brown, Bobby Parker, Danny Gatton, Roy Buchanan, Link Wray, and others too numerous to mention. As a teen Brown learned guitar by jamming with other local talent and musicians. In 1992 Brown took the leap and formed his own band, Bushmaster. The band's funky, guitar-centric, blues-rock music enlightens as well as entertains. You can hear the influence of such artists as Funkadelic, and Jimi Hendrix among others in their music.

Switch Fu will rock, sway, and mesmerize your soul. No rules. No limits. No boundaries. No single definition. The band is a pantheon of emotions that define music.

Their combined 100 plus years of blues, funk, soul, and gospel center their sound whether they play punk, country, Motown, or something closer to the vest. As individuals, they have recorded and performed in four countries and recorded music in five decades. Switch Fu is a new experience weaving a tapestry made of the passion of four members: Eric, Jay, Bill and John.
