Adam Brown & The Triple Crown Band:

All About The Experience

By Johnny Griffith

Adam Brown is in love with music and wants his fans to feel that love. Born in 1989, he began his love affair with music when, at the age of four, he saw an old performance of Stevie Ray Vaughn on TV. At the age of five, his mother gave him his first guitar which had belonged to his father who had passed away when Adam was only two. He’s had a guitar close at hand ever since.

Growing up in East Texas, Brown’s mother not only encouraged his love of music, but helped him get gigs at the ripe old age of 10, constantly exposing him to different types of music and musicians. This education allowed him to start his first band by the age of 17 and a year later, Adam opened up for Candlebox at a show here in East Texas.

Always persistent and always learning, Brown has since started a project called Adam Brown and The Triple Crown Band and they are performing all over the area as well as working on albums and videos along the way. Motivated by his love of the music, a solid work ethic, and his young daughter…Brown expects big things to happen and is doing his part to make sure he and the band have those chances.

Johnny: When did you decide to take music past the hobby level and try to make it more?

Adam: I think I always kind of knew that I wanted music to be my life and my career choice. After the first time I saw the enjoyment in people’s faces that watched me do what I loved so much, I knew this was what I was meant to do.

Johnny: Who makes up the Triple Crown Band and where did that name come from?

Adam: The Triple Crown Band is made up of Roy Hufstetler on bass guitar and backup vocals, Eric Dobbins on lead guitar, Gary Henson on drums, and myself on lead vocals, lead and rhythm guitar. The name sort of came to us right after our first practice back in 2011. I was always a big Crown Royal fan and it had a good ring to it so it just stuck.

Johnny: How would you describe your music?

Adam: That’s one of the hardest questions to answer – to describe my own music, but I would definitely say it’s Red Dirt country with a lot of rock and blues influence in there as well.

Johnny: Have you and the TCB done any previous recording work?

Adam: We have an album out right now with 10 tracks on it called “Close Your Eyes” that we recorded at Rosewood Studios in Tyler. We still sell hard copies at our shows and it’s also on any music download app for purchase. We just put out a new single that is currently playing on 105.7 KYKX called “At a Bar Somewhere in Texas” and we will have the new album out by the middle of this year.

Johnny: About how many shows a month are you guys currently playing?

Adam: As much as we can! When we are not focused on recording the new album, we practice and play every chance we get. Make sure to follow us on social media – we are constantly booking new shows.

Johnny: What have some of the biggest challenges been to devoting more time to playing gigs and traveling?

Adam: It’s all about the cashflow baby! Just like everybody else, we have bills to pay: car payment, rent, etc. and have to put food on the table so we have to do that first and then everything else goes into the music. I would say juggling between to the two and keeping life at
a happy medium is probably the biggest challenge there is, not just in music but with anything you love.

Johnny: What has been your support base through the journey?

Adam: We definitely couldn’t do this without our family, friends, and fans. Through the good times and bad, we wouldn’t be as far as we are if not for their love and support.

Johnny: What has been your most memorable gig to date?

Adam: I’d have to say Billy Bob’s in Fort Worth was probably the coolest place I’ve been able to play so far because there have been so many greats on that stage and to be able to follow them – standing in the same place as them – was just amazing. As cool as that was though, I believe the most memorable shows are yet to come.

Johnny: What’s your proudest accomplishment so far in your career as a musician?

Adam: Without a doubt, recording my first album was a great accomplishment, and my first big dream was to be able to hear my song played on the radio so when that happened, I was pretty excited. Kind of on that same line was when we heard a bar full of people sing one of our songs for us. There just isn’t anything that can adequately describe the sight of other people singing something you created.

Johnny: What’s your favorite cover song you do that nobody else is doing?

Adam: You know, I don’t think we worry so much about playing a song no one else is playing right now…so much it is that our sound, and show, is unique to us. Even if we’re playing the same cover tunes as other bands, when we play them, it will sound completely different. To us, it’s all about just playing – our sound and our way. The rest will work itself out.

Johnny: Okay, let’s say I’m out on the weekend looking for a live show to enjoy. What sets you guys apart from the other options I have?

Adam: Well I think what sets us apart is that we do such a wide variety of music from Red Dirt country to R&B to Hendrix and all the best old classics thrown in the middle. Throw in all of our original music and that gives you a show you won’t be able to hear anywhere else.

Johnny: What’s on the horizon in 2018 for Adam Brown and the TCB?

Adam: We’re looking forward to a full schedule of shows this year, both acoustic and full band. Also, promoting our new album that we can’t wait for you all to hear. We are also excited about working with our new management company. They are adding a new dynamic to our growth as a band including new videos, which are in the works as we speak. We look forward to sharing them soon with all of our fans. We’ve got a lot of great things for the new year in store. Look out, here we come!

Feb. 17th: Tony Ramey at The Old Firehouse

blue-coral-pools-tyler-tx-728x90

The Old Firehouse Presents:

Tony Ramey in Concert

The Old Firehouse in Edom hosts great acoustic concerts in the only “listening room” in the area. The Old Firehouse is located at 8241 FM 279 in Edom. The Old Firehouse is an intimate, smoke-free, and alcohol-free “coffeehouse” music room. For tickets, go to theoldfirehouse.net or call (903)852-ART1 (2781). Doors open at 6:30pm with “Schmooze Hour,” and the music begins at 7:30pm.

February 17th – Tony Ramey

With music that reflects his real life, real people, and the landscapes shaping their destinies, Tony Ramey embodies the substantive American soul.

Tony Ramey grew up in West Virginia on bluegrass and Bill Withers, found Willie, Waylon, Cash, and Kristofferson at eleven (who fueled an already fiery passion to write songs), then he heard Steve Earle whose songs convinced him to move to “Guitar Town” (Nashville) to hone his craft. He would eventually leave for Texas when the road called him out again.

With the release of his eleventh album, Ramey has the respect of industry folk, and keeps growing his audience with his undeniable prowess as a singer/songwriter. His tour schedule and his passion for performing are evidence that he prefers the troubadour life-style.

Tony’s daughter Savannah will be opening.

Admission is $18 at the door. Advance admission is $15 until 3pm Friday before the concert.

Other concerts include:

  • March 10th – Rupert Wates
  • March 24th – Sofia Talvik
  • April 14th – Ryanhood
