With a background as diverse as New York City itself, The Boomer Brothers are a multifaceted band that really just want you to have a good time!
As a trio of Donnie on guitar, Jeff on piano and Rob on drums each member sings lead as well as harmonizing. With their love of all music they perform cover songs in their own unique way.
