Fresh off the national stage, The Brewer Boys are returning Sunday to Southwest Riverside for a benefit concert after making it to the final 17 on Fox's "The XFactor."
During several on-air interviews, Justin, 18, and Nathan, 14, of Temecula, promised to give back to their community no matter how far they got in the competition or how big they made it in the music world.
They will make good on that promise Sunday at the "Dream Big" benefit concert at Monte de Oro Winery with the goal of raising $10,000 toward a new gymnasium and multipurpose room for the Oak Grove Center in Murrieta.
A brother pop duo, The Brewer Boys sing a range of songs from new country to pop to classic rock and even bluegrass. Some of their cover songs include those of Johnny Cash, Crosby Stills & Nash, Big & Rich, Journey, Train and even Jason Mraz.
They also write some of their own music.
Through the years, the boys’ music preference has evolved into more of a bluegrass/country sound with a touch of pop, to keep current. With Nathan’s newfound love for mandolin and Justin’s harmonica skills, the sound has more authenticity.
Nathan started to dub it as “alternative bluegrass” or “newgrass"--a refreshing sound from young teens in the music world who seem to enjoy a new blend of something old and classic with something new and upbeat.
The new gym/multipurpose room at the Oak Grove Center in Murrieta will include a basketball court, a performing arts room and an occupational therapy-play room for children with special needs.
The center is a nonprofit 24-hour residential and educational treatment center that serves children and adolescents who are experiencing behavioral, psychological and family dysfunction as well as children with autism.
Murrieta Development Company, the company that is spearheading the construction project, has already started grading and working on the underground utilities, said Kristi Reedy, spokesperson for Oak Grove.
Funds are still needed to complete the project that is slated to be complete in spring 2012, according to Reedy.
The "Dream Big" benefit concert is set for 5:30 p.m. Sunday at Monto De Oro Winery, 35820 Rancho California Road. Seats are limited and reservations are required. Tickets start at $18 and can be purchased by clicking here.
The boys also set up a donation site for those wanting to help reach their fundraising goal.
