Brothers Osborne Make It A Family Affair at Riverside Municipal Auditorium [Review]

Brothers Osborne brought their own festival of lights, and sound, as they rocked out at Riverside’s Municipal Auditorium on Wednesday night (Dec. 14), part of the Dirt Rich Tour.

The bros gave Southern California a true taste of their traditional country sound, with a steady blend of rock undertones. Performing an array of songs from their new album Pawn Shop, T.J. belted out “American Crazy,” “Rum” and “Down Home,” while John displayed his astounding guitar playing skills.

The reigning CMA Vocal Duo of the Year also showed off their ability to cover songs from some of country music’s biggest names such as Dixie Chicks “Goodbye Earl,” Willie Nelson’s “Whiskey River” and John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”

Crowd favorites like “21 Summer” and “Stay A Little Longer” were arguably sung the loudest inside of the packed house, and thankfully, the roof of the auditorium stayed in tact throughout the whole show, unlike some recent Brothers Osborne shows. 

It truly was a family affair as Lucie Silvas, the wife of John Osborne, opened up the show with a variety of tunes, including her infectious ballad, “Letters To Ghosts.”

Between Brothers Osborne, Lucie Silvas and the amount of talent surrounding them on stage, Riverside was alive with music Wednesday night.
