For Baltimore born brothers Ryan and Sam Weber, the last decade has been a whirlwind. Leaving for Canada straight out of high school for a chance to join one of rock music's most legendary bands, they have since traveled the world, recorded eight albums, and shared the stage with rock royalty including Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Kris Kristofferson, Jeff Healey, Ronnie Hawkins, Leon Russell and Derek Trucks to name a few.
They've built quite a reputation for their high-energy live performances, undeniable musical ability and have been called the "torch-bearers" of rock and roll. In October 2012, the brothers were invited to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame American Music Masters Tribute to Chuck Berry in Cleveland where they shared the stage with Merle Haggard, Lemmy Kilmister, Darryl "DMC" McDaniels, Rick Derringer, Joe Bonamassa, Earl Slick, Steve Jordan and the father of Rock and Roll himself, Chuck Berry.
This February, the Weber Brothers return to their native land from the great white north for a string of shows.
"Music has taken us a lot of places, but there's nothing like coming home again," said Sam Weber. "I'm looking so forward to seeing some old friends, making some new ones and doing some catching up. Very excited to show our old stomping grounds what we do now.we have never been so inspired and ready to deliver, we're playing better than we ever have, and we are coming to town in a big way! We don't make it home that often, it's always such a great time when we do, this time will be the best yet."
The Weber Brothers will be appearing at the Shepherdstown Opera House Thursday, Feb. 7. Visit www.operahouselive.com for ticket information.
