Flydown are a tough act to follow, but Cape rockers The Grab Brothers are up for the challenge. They kick in with another cover band staple and crowd favorite Petty’s “American Girl”. They put a twist on it with an extended jam at the end, showin’ off some smokin’ chops while still keeping the driving beat intact. The next song “Smoke Two Joints” comes with props, as packs of rolling papers from smoke shop Shop Therapy come raining down from the stage. “You’re All I Got Tonight” has the crowd singing along and leads up to the one and only original all night, “All The Same”. A groovy mix of rock and soul, a touch of rap, and a rippin’ metal guitar solo somehow all come together perfectly in this tune. The Grab Bros. then do their own Journey cover and break out the flute to finish their set with a song they’re known for – Tull’s “Locomotive Breath”. The Grab Bros are a talented and fun band that do songs most other bands wouldn’t, or more likely, couldn’t. It’s easy to see how they’ve achieved a devoted following on the Cape.
