About The Como Brothers Band
Matt and Andrew Como are songwriters and musicians that value organic music, and songs with original integrity. All of their songs are credited as written by Matt and Andrew Como. Music is not a hobby of the brothers but a way of life and a career. Early in life their Dad and his brothers played music at family parties and Matt and Andrew were inspired along with their parents encouragement, to play music. Music was a big part of their lives throughout childhood and their teenage years. They extensively played live throughout high school and college and are now an experienced live act. In 2010 they officially began the rock band The Como Brothers Band and have been pushing forward for their dreams of a long-term career in music.
Having grown up performing in a Beatles tribute band on Long Island The Como Brothers have proved to be true musicians. Channeling their love of singing and music composition, Matt and Andrew aim to create original music that is fun to groove out to, but at the same time can be relatable and meaningful to fans.
“We wanted to make an album that was as accessible as it was relatable. The topics of the songs are very universal. There’s nothing on there that will cause anyone to say, ‘Well, I really have no idea what they’re trying to tell me.’ Everything is pretty straightforward, and that’s exactly how we wanted it to be. We wanted to write a pop album, but on our own terms.” said guitarist and singer Andrew Como.
Past performances include opening for David Cook, The Wallflowers, and Jillian Jensen. They’ve also played numerous music festival events throughout the northeast and popular music venues like Hard Rock Caf, Highline Ballroom and Nikon Jones Beach Theatre.
Music from their previous EP’s, “The Speed of Sound” [January 2012] and “Still Waters” [March 2013] has appeared on episodes of E! Network’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians, MTV’s Real World Portland & St. Thomas, and Oxygen channel’s Best Ink. In addition to opening for David Cook, The Como Brothers Band will be performing at the CBGB Festival 2013 on October 11 at Tammany Hall; and the New York City Marathon on November 3rd.
