Music: Naked Brothers Band

By PF Wilson · August 11th, 2009 · CityBeat Recommends

Being in a TV show about being in a Rock band presents some problems, especially if you really are a musician. Such is the predicament of The Naked Brothers Band, whose Nickelodeon series is a favorite of the tween set and that demographic’s parental units. The program is shot documentary style (a la The Office), and follows the exploits of the Wolff brothers, Nat (14) and Alex (11), along with their band. The group is played by real life friends of the duo, who, unlike the brothers, aren’t musicians.

“I think the show is really good as an outlet for our music,” says Alex, “and as a way for people to hear all of our songs.” However, the boys always wanted to play live dates. “We started to play with these guys from the Berklee College of Music,” Nat says. “The band was just killing, so we had this tour (last) fall. We did it on the weekends during the school year.” With the release of their second album this spring, the brothers embarked on a larger tour. The Naked Brothers Band will perform at the Timberwolf Amphitheatre at King’s Island at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. Tickets are $39.99 (includes park admission) or $9.99 for Season Pass holders and those who already have a park ticket.
