Box Set Duo TrioJeff Person and Jim Brunberg first started playing together in the early 1990s at The Owl and the Monkey Café in San Francisco’s Sunset District. Their band, Box Set, recorded seven albums and won Bay Area Music Awards for Best Club Band and Outstanding Americana/Roots Band, and a “Group of the Year” award from the National Academy of Songwriters. Here’s what esteemed local critic Phil Elwood had to say about them back in the day. “There is a competence and intensity about Box Set that floods the ears and boggles the mind. These guys are good, and they know it. Their lyrics and vocal harmonies are unbelievably imaginative and attractive – and musical.” Performing with such artists as the Dave Matthews Band, Barenaked Ladies, Lenny Kravitz, Willie Nelson, Hot Tuna, Blues Traveler, and the Goo Goo Dolls, the band toured – and then they detoured. Jim went to law school in Portland; Jeff started working in the city in mergers and acquisitions, and then he joined the band Furthur.

 

Now, after a seven-year break, Jeff and Jim are playing together again – and they’ve just added Portland multi-instrumentalist Ben Landsverk to the mix. They’re coming to the Freight to record a live album, and they’re sure to serve up phenomenal guitar playing, rich harmony vocals, catchy tunes, thought-provoking lyrics, and that unmistakable feeling that this is music worth making and worth hearing!
