The Brew to Play Final Show on August 24

Onetime New Groove of the Month The Brew decided to part ways. The Amesbury, MA band will sign off with a final hometown show at the Amesbury Sports Park on August 24. A note from the band says, “After over a decade of touring and recording albums, The Brew is saying farewell. Thanks to all the friends and fans who made this band a true success.” The group promise to relearn many of their old favorites for their final show and offer a retrospective of their entire career.

Brothers Chris and Joe Plante joined guitarist Dave Drouin and drummer Kelly Kane to form The Brew in 2002. Kane left the band in 2012 and was replaced by longtime fan and drummer Aaron Zaroulis. The group recently released a triple-record project called Triptych. They have also shared the stage with the likes of The Allman Brothers Band, Levon Helm, moe. and Cake. The band’s legacyincludes eight albums, well over a thousand shows, half a million touring miles logged and two Top-100 radio singles charted.

Guitarist and singer David Drouin explains, “We can’t tell anyone what we’re up to next, but what we can say is that we have achieved more than we thought possible, and we want to thank everyone who has been a part of that success. We have so much gratitude and appreciation for the fans that have become family over the years. Connecting to people through music has been a magical experience; something we will never forget.”

The band’s goodbye video can be found below.
