Formed in 2008, Brown Bottle Fever's unique blend of jazz, blues, rock, and funk produces danceable beats anyone can enjoy. Original lyrics and diverse sounds transpire to catchy hooks and smiling faces.
Originally from Chattanooga, TN, the band’s lead singer, Zach Pemberton, cut his musical teeth playing four years of harmonica for the popular blues band Blackdog and the Rainmakers. While his first musical love is the harmonica, Pemberton has transitioned into a vibrant vocalist fine tuning his vocal chords to an aesthetically pleasing symphonic sound.
Brown Bottle Fever’s lead guitarist and vocalist, B.W. Skelton, has been playing guitar for 20 years. Originally from St. Louis, MO, Skelton has stared in several bands including Drag the Weak, Eli-Stone, and Gear. Both Skelton and Pemberton contribute to writing and composing the band’s tracks.
Brown Bottle Fever recorded its first album in Spring 2010 followed by the release of Two Piece Prison in 2013. BBF qualified for the International Blues Competition in 2013 in Memphis, TN. The band is no longer touring yet still looking to license its recorded work.
