About: The Famous Brothers hail from the mining town of Monkey’s Crevice, West Virginia, where they created a unique three-part harmony style and wrote most of their memorable song list -- featuring titles like “I Got Twenty Ways to Kill You With My Swiss Army Knife”. Their critically-acclaimed revue HERE COME THE FAMOUS BROTHERS! ran for five months at Chicago's Royal George Theater and resulted in a cast album of the same name; they've since put out two other cds, INBRED TALENT and BORN FAMOUS. Their series of concerts at the Lakeshore Theater garnered them a “Critic’s Choice” in the Chicago Reader.
