âThe resonating sound and honest lyrics of Brick Fieldsâ music does what all good music should. It crosses the lines that divide us, giving each listener or member of the audience something in common with each otherâ (sayâs Jennifer Downing Burleighâ)
According to Brick Fields listeners, Rachelâs bluesy, uplifting voice, and inspiring melodies and lyrics, can be felt when she throws her head back and letâs her heart sing. Larryâs cream chords, tender harmonies, lyrics and melodies, soar through restoring the spirit with-in of everyone the music touches. These two together create a sort of sound you canât get enough of. The Brick Fields Band is soul-spirational, entertaining, can get you dancing, and at the same time can bring you to tears. The band is built around the husband and wife songwriting team of Brick Fields, Rachel Fields and Larry Brick. The music brings to the surface feelings and emotions you didnât even know you had and has been called âsoulspirationalâ. Each and every member of the band has a unique stage presence. Casey Terry blows the saxophone like itâs no-bodyâs business while he sways and jumps really getting excited about playing his instrument. Randy Fairbanks plays a simple yet strong organ foundation and entertains the audience with witty comments, his wild curls, and unforgettable presence, Johnny Ray with his fun-loving smile and smooth bass notes really ad flavor to the foundation of the band, and Caleb Bomar is a first class drummer playing every beat, rhythm, and percussion instrument the way they were meant to be played. This band has been called, âsoul-fullâ, âbreathtakingâ, âawesomeâ, âgraciousâ, âamazingâ, âheaven to listen toâ and even SuperEUREKAfragilistikexpealidocious.
