MARCH 2015 BAND OF THE MONTH
Brynn Arens— Vocals, Guitar, Songwriter
The self-proclaimed “oldest new band in rock” got together simply for
their shared love of rock & roll. The four members of The Oddfathers are
all veterans of the Minneapolis music scene, and all knew of each other –
and occasionally worked with each other – but never actually all played
together before. Vocalist and guitarist Brynn Arens made Flipp a household
word in the Twin Cities (and literally a household band with numerous
garage gigs) in the 90’s. Drummer Tom Cook toured the world with The
Magnolias and has been a go-to drummer for any number of bands and genres.
Bassist and vocalist Krys Barrato was stage left for numerous Sunset Strip
bands and artists in the 90’s, before returning to his native Minnesota.
And lead guitarist and vocalist Casey Gooby is not only renowned for his
fretwork, but also his amp work – his business Gooby Amps repairs and
restores classic guitar amps for guitar players around the world.
