Barrel 135 in Williamsport, PA, is a fun spot to get a great pint of brew and some of the best local music... Please join us Saturday, August 11, 2018, as this fun venue brings the funky-blues-rock original music of Bushmaster featuring Gary Brown (duo version) to the stage from 9pm till 11pm. Hailed as "Best Up and Coming Blues-Rock Artist" by Rock Over America Magazine, this is one show you don't want to miss...
"...His passion for guitar and the pursuit of a good tone has reached across a wide range of countries via the radio, earning him positive reviews. Although he is humble with compliments, his stage presence is the complete opposite bursting with emotion and energy. ..."

Musically, Brown and his crew draw upon influences ranging from the obvious (Jimi Hendrix, for example) to the sublime (world beat, Latin rock, and – oh yeah! – Funkadelic). Lyrically, Brown seems to be influenced heavily by hip-hop revolutionaries Chuck D [Public Enemy] and KRS-One [Boogie Down Productions], adding a much-needed kick in the backside to the very concept of the blues..."
- the Impaler, The Impaler Speaks
"...a fifteen track effort that is appealing and confounding, rough cut and poignant, political and literal. If you like blues, muddy rock or juke joint jive, Bushmaster's the ticket... Their sounds make you want to go see them live and experience the talent first hand and witness Brown impromptu..."
- Navajo Slim (aka: Greg Hasty), Lit Magazine
