2009, born in a basement tucked into the NJ Pine Barrens, Black Brant materialized. Comprised of longtime friends Pat Seiler (Guitar and Vocals), Mike McCabe (Bass and Vocals) and Shawn Latham (Drums), Black Brant scavenged every back yard they could find, modestly covering acts from Led Zeppelin to Pink Floyd with a jam-style mix to break the redundancy of typical covers. Backyards grew into bars; bars grew into festivals. Now, with a repertoire of nearly 100 songs ranging from the 1950s to present day, as well as having an EP of their own, Black Brant continues to mix Rock, Blues, Alternative, and Reggae to create a commanding sound to make you dance, space out, and anything else in between.
