The Suburban Brothers Band  first formed over 20 years ago as Bob Pinnola gathered a bunch of "regular suburban guys" who liked to get 
together to play and write music, laugh, joke, relax, sing and jam on front porches, in backyards and at block parties.  Over the years, the times have changed and the band and their music have grown. The 
Suburban Brothers musical philosophy... Always something different.  Always with energy.  Always with style. 


   The Suburban Brothers Band has performed at about 100 different venues throughout New York, Long Island, Fire Island,
Connecticut, Maryland, California and Virginia at 
concerts, clubs, taverns, pubs
, festivals, 
restaurants, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, sophisticated art galleries and mansions (and not so sophisticated beach parties and tiki bars), at all types of events, big or small, electric or acoustic, indoor or outdoor, in the city or at the beach, as a full 6 piece band with a very cool horn section or as an acoustic duo on guitars singing harmonies, or anything in between... wearing very fashionable suits and ties or very comfy shorts and stylish Hawaiian shirts! 
 

Rock/Blues/Jazz/(No Disco, Please)/ Contemporary/Everything Band



  
The band
consists of... Bob Pinnola on lead, slide and rhythm guitars, 
vocals, piano, harmonica, bass, drums, congas, banjo, mandolin, cowbell, legal
advice and stand up
comedy. (Sometimes it's difficult to tell the difference between his advice and comedy.)  Michael “Cousin Mikey” Immerman is one cool dude on full-bodied finger-picking guitar, vocals, kibitzing and is a master chef.  Ben Pinnola is Bob's son on bass, sax, piano, guitar, vocals, percussion and is a classically trained musician who enjoys every style of music and can play just about every instrument known to mankind.  Ferdinand “Freddy” Motley IV is on drums and all types of percussion, vocals and is clearly the best dressed and most stylish guy in the band. (Just ask him.) 
  
   Over the past few years, the band is often joined by special guest musicians. One very talented musician has grown to become a member of the band... Alexandria "Mustang Ally" Muller on smooth vocals, cool trumpet, French horn, bass and piano. Yes, there is a Suburban Sister in the Suburban Brothers Band!  And then there's Joe "Mojo" Clayton on percussion, bass and setting up sound systems and equipment with lightning speed and a big smile!
 

The entire band has a level of musicianship, friendship,
energy and creative chemistry that makes them stand out.

The Suburban Brothers Band
writes and performs original music, as well as plays their own arrangements of songs written by many other artists, in many different genres of music, from rock to jazz, from blues to folk, from contemporary hits to standards and classics.  There's something for everybody! 

   The Suburban Brothers Band played their first gig together on a cold winter night in 1996 at Lily Flanagan's in Islip NY .  They warmed the place right up!  They've been making music together ever since, having performed at Lily's about 100 times over the course of 20 years (some say it's a Long Island music scene record).  It was at Lily's that Guitarist-at-Law Bob Pinnola  first joked he would offer his clients "10% off on their next arrest" if they came to his gigs. (Shows were packed!)  They've performed as a full electric band with a horn section or as an acoustic guitar and vocal duo, and everything in between, at every kind of show and event, at all types of venues, at private parties and summertime street fairs, at St. Baldrick charities for children and Seatuck fundraisers for the environment.  



We play many styles of music
so people can...

sit down, relax and listen
or
get up, party and dance!

 
  Whether it's because of, or in spite of, Bob's Rodney Dangerfield sense of humor, the Suburban Brothers have
played at so many places, including... The Scully Mansion, Nicky's on the Bay, Treme Blues & Jazz Club, Great South Bay Brewery, Flynn's, Morningside Inn, Maxwell's, Lily Flanagan's, Bayberry Beach and Tennis Club, Bayside Clam Bar, Riverhead Ciderhouse, Key West Tiki Bar, The Blue, Pace's, Putnam Valley Sunset Concerts, The Caramoor Center, Captain Bill's, Danfords, Three Village Inn, Seatuck EcoCarnival, Sunset on the Beach Restaurant, the Cradle of Aviation, as well as private parties in NY, MD, CT, CA, VA and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

   All joking aside, the Suburban Brothers Band believes in supporting community and charitable organizations, including:  Seatuck Environmental Association, St. Baldrick's Foundation, Islip Chamber of Commerce, Wheelchairs and Veterans Enjoying Summer (WAVES), Walter Erwood Islip Community Beautification Project, Keep Islip Clean (KIC), Islip Arts Council, Over the Hill Gang Charity, Breast Cancer Care and Research, 9-1-1 Veterans Association, Sea Paddle NYC Autism Foundation and for other community and cultural events.  



Music brings people together.
