Franklin Brothers Band

About the Franklin Brothers Band

Hailing from New London, CT, the Franklin Brothers Band consists of brothers Jay Franklin (keyboards and vocals) and Carl Franklin (guitars and vocals) along side an always killer line-up of impeccable local musicians. The current configuration includes a 4-piece horn section (affectionately known as the "Brassholes"), the inimitable Amie Coffey on lead and backup vocals, Ty Coleman on drums, Kevin Carey on bass, and sometimes precussionist Che Cartafalsa. All in all there are 23 rotating members.

The music is all about the groove. Just listen.

In the press:

"Sophisticated, polished, intelligent pop music. If you were separating the genetic twine of their music, you'd find cellular imprints of Steely Dan, Toy Matinee, Atlanta Rhythm Section and Toto along with a sneaky, evocative dash of New Orleans seasoning."
- Rick Koster, Peter Huoppi. The New London Day

"The Franklin Brothers blend big production pop; ala Billy Joel's piano soaked soul, with the rootsy rock n' roll sounds of bands like The Eagles. The songs are clean, crisp and clear and completely inoffensive to the ears. This is an exercise in song craft and musicianship not of pushing sonic boundaries."
- Adam Wujtewicz. Wailing City

"Had I heard this disc [Been a While] in 2013 (the year it was released) it might very well have made my 'best of the year' list. It’s that good."
- - G. W. Hill, Music Street Live.

"I don't do as many sideman dates anymore. But Carl's funk/jazz/pop stuff is interesting to me. He's really good, and the guys in his band are really good."
- John Scofield, quoted in New London Day
