Union House Band The Rise of Bent Bowler'

Sometimes, the tastiest grooves are home-cooked. That is certainly the case for Bangor-based Union House Band on their second album, 'The Rise of Bent Bowler.'

The band, composed of Rick Bruns (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Greg Lunn (vocals, guitar) and Chas Bruns (vocals, bass, drums), navigates a variety of styles ranging from rock and folk to pop, blues and even a modern day sea chantey among the album's 12 original songs.
