Balkun Brothers


After recently exploding onto the music scene with their powerful brand of psychedelic rock n’ roll, Balkun Brothers are creating a name for themselves amongst the top rock-blues bands in the USA and worldwide. Founding members Steve Balkun (guitar/vocals) and Nick “The Hammer” Balkun (drums/vocals) are gaining followers across the world with their raw hard-rockin’ attitude, becoming known for their high-energy live shows. Balkun Brothers bring a fresh mixture of funk, rock, blues, and intense improvisation that has been impressing crowds from Paris to New York City! The brothers, both in their 20’s, are solidifying themselves as top musicians in the rock and blues scenes of this generation.

In 2015, Balkun Brothers released their label debut. The self-titled album offers a hard-nosed, gritty sound that hints at many of the band’s influences including Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Johnny Winter, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Primus, The Black Keys, and Jimi Hendrix. Their new album was released on the French label, Dixiefrog Records. The band recently completed their first world tour and is currently on the road promoting their new album across the United States.

Balkun Brothers have toured endlessly since their start and have shared the stage with artists such as Johnny Winter, Joe Bonamassa, Iggy Pop, Gogol Bordello, Morphine, Motley Crüe, Slayer, Eric Sardinas, Dopapod, James Cotton, and many more!

The band is currently recording another album and they plan to release it in Spring of 2016 along with a full World tour.
