The Bricks' is actually the fourth iteration of '3 Bricks Shy'. Individually they have both been performing since the late 70's as solo artists in various duo, trio, and band configurations. It wasn't until 1999 that 3 Bricks Shy was launched, and it wasn't until Sam joined the band in 2000 things started to take off. 3 Bricks Shy, which included Tim, Sam, and bassist Randy Miller, gained popularity as a result of the song selection, solid instrumental work, and really sweet three part harmony vocals. They had the pleasure and privilege of opening for local recording artists The Poverty Neck Hillbillies, and National acts such as The Marshall Tucker Band and Dave Mason. They also shared the stage with Pure Prairie League and Hootie and the Blow Fish. They performed all around the Laurel Highlands/Westmoreland County area until December 2007.
In early 2008, Sam and Tim decided to try it as a duo, and so far, so good. We are having a hell of a good time carrying on the tradition of classic acoustic music and promoting the consumption of alcohol. Team Drink!!!
