On December 17, 1903, at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, Awful and Wilbert Bright formed the band, called 'The 2B Brothers' ...on that very same day they also happened 2B the only two people to witness their neighbours fly an aircraft for the first time in the history of mankind and they took a photo of the siblings who lived next door
Their unique music tradition (a warped take on society) was passed through the family for decades and by the nineteen seventies the group had expanded to a larger ensemble. Rumour has it that some of the black sheep in the family, who experimented with other methods of flying, formed a splinter group - tweaking the name from "The 2B Brothers” to 'The Doobie Brothers'
By the turn of the century, due to most of the family being incarcerated for assorted misdemeanours, all musical and flight endeavours were eventually grounded.
In a bizarre twist of fate, coupled with questionable litigation outcomes, the rights to the original name of “The 2B Brothers” landed up being awarded to the secret love children of Kitty van Rooyen and Hawk ‘Well Hung’ de Wet – two porn stars who had dubious liaisons with various close relatives.
THE 2B BROTHERS are back to the original ‘two piece’ format – a brother & sister combo:
Danny de Wet (eVOID, Petit Cheval and Wonderboom. ...creator of successful tribute shows Hey Now, HEY NOW NOW and THE LATTER DAY POETS ...more 2B announced).
Liezl van Rooyen (entered a Karaoke Competition for fun AND WON! ...secured a record deal. ...may consider having a sex change operation 2B Danny’s actual brother).
THE 2B BROTHERS show is a comedic cynical take on life / love / authority, using well known classic songs which they juxtaposition against their own crazy original compositions.
Tracey Chapman’s 'Revolution' VS the original 2B Brothers “The Governments a Joke ...let’s have a party!” ‘Shiny Happy People' by REM is twisted into “Shiny Happy Goths” (with a middle eight that sees Chris de Burgh’s ‘Lady in Red’ twisted into “Lady in Black is depressing me, ...week by week”)
Danny wrote a song for the notorious ‘Star Tonight’ rock journalist Therese Owen, called “Hairy Armpits Will Never Change the World”
