The circle is complete... 

Ladies and Gentlemen...we give you...Tommy Anderson on bass guitar.

Bay Area native Tommy Anderson is a 10 year veteran of the local music scene.  He's been known to lay down the low end with bands of all genres: from the psychedelic revival sounds of The Love Dimension, to the relentless riffs of thrash metal outfit Serpent Crown, to the Latin and soul inspired vibes of Down Dirty Shake, to name just a few.  His earliest musical loves are 70’s progressive rock and metal, and as such he wears the influence of players like Chris Squire and Geezer Butler on his sleeve, channeling their baroque style of contrapuntal playing while still keeping it groovy, and, above all, heavy. He is excited to return to the altar of Sabbath worship and join the faithful of BRB already gathered there.

One of the "best 4 bands in the Bay Area"

           -
107.7, The Bone


"The band’s sound is as filthy and dark as the [Cuyahoga, for which they are named] river, featuring a highly melodic and aggressive brand of metallic hard rock that is built upon a foundation of thundering Black Sabbath-like stoner rock riffs and incorporates everything from psych rock and southern rock to 90’s grunge for a heavy, nostalgia-laced sound that will have you reaching for the repeat button after your very first listen. "
       
          -  Justin Krietzer, Independent Music Reviewer



“Solid guitar riffs gilded with beautiful keyboard melodies...a sweet sound that will still be able to speak to the old school headbanger in you.”
