The Brothers Comatose set to play at Roots and Vines Festival
YAKIMA, Wash.- Historic Front Street is on the home stretch to this weekend’s Roots and Vines Festival. The street will be closed off and be host to a star-studded lineup of Americana and blue grass bands as well as a wide variety of local beer and wine makers.
The Brothers Comatose is one of the bands that'll be performing on Saturday.
They offer a southwestern-tinged, rowdy stringband sound that might just make them your new favorite band.
Brothers Ben and Alex Morrison play the guitar and banjo and are the lead vocalists. They front this rocking string band that's become a west coast headliner and national touring act.
The festival also features 14 different breweries and wineries and is a way to highlight what Yakima is all about.
Sean Hawkins, Yakima’s Economic Development Manager, finds that the music lineup compliments the event well.
"To me it's all really authentic type of music and these are authentic local beverages so they do go hand in hand. So it just makes for a fun day," he said.
Roots and Vines has grown every year and leaders from the downtown association of Yakima expect a couple thousand people to come out this year.
Victor De Long, Downtown Association of Yakima, said this is one of the biggest events of the year and it has come at the perfect time.
"What better way to spend an afternoon than drinking some great beverages and listening to some great music," he said.
