The story of The Get Down Boys starts sometime in 2007, in Boston, MA, where Andy Keathley and Matt Bruer met in Jon Aldrich's "Jingle Writing" class at Berklee College of Music. It was then that they made arrangements to pick some bluegrass and eventually play together around Boston in the 'jam-grass' fusion band, Southbound Underground. After graduating from Berklee in 2008 and relocating to Los Angeles, Matt & Andy continued to jam in local bluegrass circles. Looking to round out the instrumentation, the band employed the use of craigslist to audition bass players. They didn't look any further than the first candidate, Evan Winsor, who had arrived in L.A. weeks earlier, surprisingly from Boston where he had also just graduated from Berklee. The band is now joined by Etienne Cremieux on fiddle and vocals and the group is releasing a new CD, "Girls".
