Even though the Brothers Dube are young, they are talented and devoted beyond their years. This Saturday night September 2 Liam (13 ), Jan (12 ) and 10-year-old Quinn who have rocked the charity world by busking and raising more than $125,000 for charity will take to the stage in Brennan’s Lane, Ballina. They have shared bills with Sean Paul and Kymani Marley and performed live with artists such as Arcade Fire, Hollerado, and The Odds.
The Brothers Dube got their start in music in Ottawa, Canada, in 2006 at the ages of six, eight, and 10 after posting covers of their mother’s favourite songs on YouTube as a means of keeping her spirits up while she fought cancer. Shortly after her death, they began fund-raising. They continue to inspire other children to make a change in their communities and are now touring internationally after releasing their debut CD One. Their influences include Pink Floyd, U2, Rush, Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, Black Sabbath and Metallica. For more information you can visit their website at www.brothersdube.com
