From this group's original explosion on the modern country scene in 2012 during the Back in the Saddle national band competition through early successes on country radio with a self-titled debut album in 2014 on into 2018's release, Taking You Higher, Brushville brings it on, keeps it going and drives it home. With the quick-to-entertain quartet of Marc Broomby (bass, vocals), Darin Holthaus, (drums, vocals), Kirk Ellis (lead guitar, fiddle, vocals) and Dustin Reynolds (rhythm guitar, lead vocals) currently continuing their renowned fiery live show wherever they go, they make a crowd come alive using high-energy performances, top-notch musicianship, sparkling vocals with high-end harmonies and songs that deliver the party every time. Based out of Bloomington-Normal, these experienced musicians have played everywhere with everybody from fairs and festivals to clubs and theaters, doing what they do in their own style. As they put it, "This isn't just a band... it's an experience," and indeed, they are, and it is.
