The Boston, Mass-based jam rock quartet Neighbor killed the festival circuit this summer and was due for a two-set heater as their summer tour waned. As a result, a raging inferno of covers, new tunes, and old classics unfurled at the Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY on September 8, 2023. Baked Shrimp, the prog rock trio from Long Island, NY, provided their support.

In just under a year the musical juggernaut Neighbor has become one of the most exciting and unpredictable live acts on the jam scene today. The brain child of vocalist and keyboardist Richard James (Pink Talking Fish) and guitarist Lyle Brewer (formerly of Ryan Montbleau Band), Neighbor combines ambitious composition, soulful balladry and a fearless approach to their lengthy improvisations. Rounded out by bassist Dan Kelly (The New Motif) and Dean Johnston (Club D’elf) the band has honed their craft at their Tuesday night residency at Thunder Road in Boston.
