BACKGROUND:
The Crain Brothers Band consists of brothers and family friends who have been singing and playing music professionally for years.

Eric and Alex claim the band actually started on Christmas Day, 1972 when they woke up to find an electric guitar and drums in front of the Christmas tree. Years later, when they heard their younger brother, Jon, singing like Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin, they realized there was no turning back. The Crain boys' parents—Don and Susanne—had instilled a love for music in them early on. Susanne is a classically trained pianist. And Don had been in a vocal group called The Four Presidents back in the 1950s
.  
 
In the late 90s, Alex was signed to Island Records. His band Spectacle released only one album. While it was favorably reviewed and their summer single "You Made Me Hate the Beach Boys" played often on the LA station, KROQ, the record wasn't a commercial success. Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys attended Spectacle's final LA concert.
 
After the show, Alex asked Brian what he thought. With a hand to his chest and sincerity in his voice, he said (from one side of his mouth), 
"Oh man, that just really warmed my soul!"
And that's what we're all about.
 
  • "You guys just make people happy. Plain and simple." (Jeremy, 50th Birthday Party at Midnight Brewery)
     
  • "Nobody had ever danced at our annual company awards banquet until we hired The Crain Brothers Band. People were up on their feet from the very first song and had a wonderful night. I cannot recommend them highly enough!" (Christie, Event Planner)
     
  • "The Crain Brothers never disappoint!"
    (
    Sandy, Country Club Activities Director)

     
  • "They know when to dial things back, but can also rock the house. The vocal quality and  variety of styles they play are amazing."
    (Jeff, Venue Owner)

     
  • "The Crain Brothers Band was perfect for our birthday event. We had all ages there and everyone loved the song variety. These guys are amazing!"
