Strap in; you’re in for a wild ride and an astoundingly good time. 

Having been called into action during the dark times of the pandemic, Vincent Brue & the Long Branch Davidians have quickly shaken up the scene with their humor and musical prowess.

The brainchild of comedian and songwriter Vincent Brue, this talented band’s dedication to rock n’ roll is no laughing matter. With grand ambitions of captivating audiences everywhere and the skill to back it up, Vincent Brue & the Long Branch Davidians are a band you will want to watch for in the future.

With a sound described as “The lovechild of the E-Street Band and the Mothers of Invention,” Vincent Brue & the Long Branch Davidians’s music will have you on the edge of your seat.

Although their musical style is true to classic rock n’ roll, their ability to not take themselves too seriously lends a unique charm to every release. Their releases are something they take pride in. Above all else, the unabashed freedom with which they play indicates a deep love for their craft and music that ultimately rubs off on listeners.

Vincent Brue and the Long Branch Davidian’s latest album, “We Didn’t Start the Fire,” is a positive delight for all the rock lovers out there. Coming in at just under a half hour of listening time, cheerful, tongue-in-cheek titles and engaging yet amusing lyricism grab your attention from the get-go.

From the beginning of “We Didn’t Start a Fire,” from the opening track “Grasping At Straws” to the closing salvo on “Tonight We Ride,” it’s clear that this talented band has a vision: entertaining you through rock n’ roll that’ll have you smiling and laughing as quickly as it’ll have you grooving.

Although Brue and the Long Branch Davidians’ sound is closer to traditional rock, the humor and, at times, the absurdity of “We Didn’t Start the Fire” is reminiscent of alternative rock and roll bands like vintage Fall Out Boy. From the slower, emotional chords and lyrics on “Into The Wilderness” to the helter-skelter chaotic feel on “Big Heart,” Brue and the Long Branch Davidians show their versatility.

There’s a little something for everyone; songs like “Old Timer” feel like lighthearted tributes to Otis Redding, while the amusingly named “Young Rectums” may feel tongue-in-cheek but entertains well. Above all else, “We Didn’t Start The Fire” is wildly entertaining. What more could you want?
