Consistently creating and then breaking the mold, Brother Bean became a Florida live music tradition. What started as theme music to a never-ending party quickly matured into a viscous, cosmic soundscape that unfolds on stage in a patient, organic display. Brother Bean altered the reality of what is possible with 3 instrumentalists, weaving sonic tapestries with the capacity of bands twice their size. AURA Music Festival and Brother Bean have a very special relationship, beginning when AURA Music Events founder Daryl Wolff first began running sound for the band in 2008. Brother Bean went on to headline the 1st Aura Music Festival with a set that is still talked about by many, where the band remained on stage until daybreak. Russ Neidhardt, Eric Flint, and Patrick Livezey walked away from the stage that morning, but their music lived on among the ever-expanding "BB family". It is only fitting that Brother Bean makes their official return on the AURA 2012 stage. We hope you will join us in welcoming them home.
