You probably know these non-siblings from the best live music venues around town: The Grape Room, McGillicuddy’s, Bourbon Blue, Dawson Street Pub to name a few. Catch them playing all our rock/pop favorites at East Falls Oktoberfest.
TRUE STORY: The Duke Brothers are not really brothers. They’ve really only known each other since 2011 — and within a year they were performing as a duo.
No relation, though. They took their name from the grumpy old villains in “Trading Places,” a 1983 Eddie Murphy/Dan Ackkroyd movie that both Joe Holz (vocalist) and Andrew Geigert (guitar) were big fans of — especially the Duke Brothers, who were so funny & so horrible simultaneously. Plus, “It’s a Philly-based movie, and we’re a Philly band,” Andrew explained.
