Brad Brock's One Man Band Show features an eclectic mix of pop, rock, blues, reggae, and original tunes arranged in his unique one-man band style. He plays guitar, drums, bass, harmonica, and sings in harmony without the use of loop pedals or pre-recorded backing tracks to create a truly live band experience. Brad's sound is influenced by such great artists like John Mayer, Tom Petty, and Cat Stevens.
Brad Brock came onto the Florida music scene in 2001 with his country music band, Brad Brock & the Renegades. The band played dance-halls, clubs, & honkytonks throughout Florida. They opened for many country music superstars such as, Blackhawk, The Warren Brothers, and Kenny Chesney. The Renegades eventually disbanded in 2007 and Brad, moving away from country music, began focusing on writing and recording his original music.
In 2010, Brad released his first studio album, Welcome To Hollywood. With a raw, acoustic driven sound the record generated one licensed track featured on Miranda Lambert's CMT Behind The Music episode.
The following year, Brad Brock took his show around the world performing music on cruise ships. When his last ship sailed in 2014, he began working on his second full-length album, Songs About You (and Every Other Girl). The record produced several live-crowd favorites like, I Don't Wanna Dance, You Used To, & Your Name.
In 2016, Brad began developing his One Man Band Show. Continuously working in new effects and foot percussion, he strived to create a truly full-band sound without using loopers or backing tracks. He currently performs regularly at venues around the Treasure Coast and consistently works to expand and improve his show.
2018 brought the release of Brad Brock's third studio album, Once Upon A Bottle of Rum. A dive into the Trop-Rock genre, the record is an introspective on his time at sea. The title track, Once Upon A Bottle of Rum and Yacht Pub are crowd favorites at his live shows.
In 2020, Brad began hosting a weekly livestream video podcast called the Jams 'N' Cocktails LIVE Podcast where he and his panel discuss entertainment news, Treasure Coast events, try fun challenges, and feature emerging local artists and their music. The show broadcasts live each Wednesday evening and he interacts directly with viewers. He is also the producer and an on-air personality for The Johnny Ringo Show, which broadcasts each Sunday afternoon on Facebook & JNC Radio.
