THE BAND IS BOND is a collective of musicians playing the music, theme songs, and soundtracks from the timeless and ongoing library of the James Bond franchise. Each show will be a different journey through the secret agent's world with each musician giving their own spin to the music. With the Bond franchise stretching over 50 years there are few limitations to where this party can go. THE BAND IS BOND covers all eras of Bond music with but with emphasis on the 60's and 70's soundtracks. While the theme songs from the movies will be the crux of the repertoire, the instrumentals will be a sizeable portion of this creation.
For this special Brooklyn Bowl live debut, THE BAND IS BOND is encouraging attendees to come 'DRESSED TO KILL' as their favorite Bond or Bond Babe. Tuxes and evening dresses will make tis evening a SPECTREclee.

And more jam band superstars.
Music fans are familiar with Humphreys from his years leading North Carolina faves Dillon Fence and Hobex. With songs influenced by the best in pop, funk, soul, R&B, and rock n' roll, you might find Greg Humphreys Electric Trio in the same idiosyncratic corner of the big Americana tent where you'd find Alabama Shakes, Chris Stapleton, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, or the North Mississippi Allstars.
Humphreys formed his Electric Trio in New York City with Drummer Keith Robinson and Bassist Matt Brandau. Robinson brings Texas flavor, having toured and recorded with Marcia Ball and Charlie Robison. Brandau has backed up Elvis Costello and Joan Osborne.
"Humphreys is building his reputation cautiously but deliberately… his good fortune is all but inevitable." — Lee Zimmerman, No Depression
"All of Humphreys’ musical projects have shared some common elements: His distinctive soulful rasp, channeling Sam Cooke by way of Rod Stewart; his tight, imaginative guitar work; and his gift for writing melodic, catchy, deceptively simple tunes." — Eddie Huffman, Winston-Salem Journal
"Lucky Guy, the first release with his Electric Trio, reflects the optimism of a man who’s made the right moves." — David Klein, Indy Week
