Here for the Good Times
The Bronk Brothers, fronted by the brother duo of Heath and Brian Bronk, began their music journey in 1997. They best describe their show as a 'Rockin' Hillbilly Extravaganza'-an out of control, pedal-to-the-metal, in-your-face musical journey. The duo uses a mixture of classic country, new country, and classic rock to create their own original music and sound. When these influences are mixed together, the result is the unforgettable 'Rockin' Hillbilly Extravaganza.' The Bronk Bros have performed with over 60 of Nashville's biggest acts. They have opened shows for new country artists like Phil Vassar, Dierks Bentley, and Chris Cagle. In addition, the band has opened for veteran hit makers like Colin Raye, Mark Chesnutt, Tracy Byrd, Joe Diffie, and the legendary The Oak Ridge Boys. In the summer of 2007, the Bronk Bros released their first original single to country radio. Entitled "In The Eye Of The Beerholder," the song was quickly added to the play rotation by radio giant B-93.7 (WBCT) in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The listener response to "Beerholder" earned the group a slot at the "B-93 Birthday Bash" in Ionia, Michigan where they performed to 65,000 attendees. In May, 2008, the Bronk Bros high-energy show culminated in an opening slot for LeAnn Rimes and the legendary Kenny Chesney at a sold-out Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids. Currently, the band is pushing their new single "Here For The Good Times" to other markets in the hope of gaining more radio airplay as well as new friends, fans, venues at which to perform, and landing a recording contract. The Bronk Bros are both vocalists and songwriters. Heath Bronk also plays lead guitar, while Brian Bronk specializes on the harmonica. The brothers are backed on stage by a rhythm section that has played in bands together for seven years: bassist Woody T. Bridges, drummer John "Dutch" Fulling on drums, and most recent addition lead guitarist T-Rex Bell. The Bronk Bros continue to work hard to perfect the 'Rockin' Hillbilly Extravaganza' by keeping performances unpredictable and exciting. The group also strives to be fan-friendly by performing over 125 live shows per year, developing new music, marketing it's own merchandise, and sending out weekly newsletters via email to fans. In addition, the band also utilizes the internet through myspace and other related music sites.
