The Brothers Comatose: a Benefit for The Schoolbox Project w/Sam Chase (solo) & The Highway Poets
Expansive, uplifting, and just downright beautiful, “City Painted Gold” is one of the most anticipated records of the coming year – certainly amongst the loyal fans The Brothers Comatose have won while touring across the country in support of their past two releases. Infused with a sense of relaxed, experienced confidence, The Brothers Comatose offer a southwestern-tinged, rowdy string band sound that might just make this your new favorite record before you turn it over to side B.
With bassmaster Gio Benedetti and stellar accompanists Philip Brezina on fiddle and Ryan Avellone on mandolin, their high energy, audience engaging shows have caught fire with fans from San Diego to Seattle to Salt Lake to Silk Hope, NC and beyond.
“It all sort of started before we ever picked up instruments” explains Ben. “Our mom was in a folk quartet that sang beautiful songs in harmony. The brothers learned a mess of classic rock covers, playing casually in their living room and around campfires (and at those famous Morrison music parties) for the next few years. Eventually their genre of choice drifted to broad stoke Americana and a buddy asked them to come record a few tunes in his garage.
The Schoolbox Project is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides mobile, trauma informed education, art and play to children in refugee camps throughout Greece. Our volunteers come from around the world to go through our specialized training on how to work with children who have been through trauma and are living in a camp environment. Children in our programs are never excluded or punished for difficult behavior or for disabilities. They are instead given 1:1 support at school and at home (tent, sidewalk squat, wherever is "home") to promote full inclusion and healing, while also avoiding retraumatization The Schoolbox Project operates out of converted shipping containers that can be solar powered and can be set up or relocated in just one day.
