Megan McCormick and Debonzo Brothers Band to Play Berkeley Cafe

You canʻt miss this show. What show, you ask? That would be the show that Megan McCormick and the Debonzo Brothers Band will be playing at the Berkeley Cafe in downtown Raleigh, NC on Wednesday, March 9.

Megan McCormick has a unique, slightly gritty voice that just keeps you hanging on. You really canʻt help but listen to her album Honest Words on repeat. Itʻs one of those albums that leaves you feeling a string of emotions; you just know that if you see her live, she will bring it all full circle. Her songs just stir your very soul. At 23 years old, I canʻt help but feel a twang of jealousy at her vocal ability. Many people learn to play the guitar, but it takes something very special to pull at a personʻs heartstrings.


The Debonzo Brothers Band consist of Jeff Debonzo on vocals and guitar; Keef Debonzo  on vocals and guitar; Grant Emerson (Delta Rae) on bass; and Chris Hibbard on drums. Being a local [Raleigh] band, the men bring a taste of good olʻ fashioned indie rock to the table. Their vocal abilities are so smooth that you can easily fall into a habit of head-nodding without even realizing it. I really enjoy the sound of “Boombox”, which is available for preview here.

Needless to say, Iʻm very excited for this show. If you enjoy great rock ʻnʻ roll that just canʻt be beat then youʻre advised to attend this show.

Show starts at 8pm and doors open at 7pm. Tickets are $10 in advance and at the door. If youʻd like, you can purchase yours here.
