The first sentence of a band’s Wikipedia page typically includes the date or year the band was formed. But for Brumby, a rising star in the Las Vegas music scene, it’s not that simple. “We’re not really sure,” says frontman Oliver Tingey, lead singer of Brumby. His cousins, guitarist Tyler Tingey and bassist Spencer Tingey, make up the group along with drummer Dylan Self, their childhood friend.
“It was more of a natural progression,” Oliver continues. “The four of us grew up together and just happened to learn the right instruments. We were always playing together and at one point asked ourselves, ‘Are we in a band right now?’ We gave ourselves a name and just went with it.”
The result is a natural chemistry as uncontrived as the band’s formation and an energy that becomes almost palpable on stage. “Brumby nearly brought the roof down with their rowdy performance, which clearly stood out from the others,” wrote Kolbie Stonehocker in City Weekly after watching the band win the 2014 Velour Battle of The Bands, former winners including Imagine Dragons and Neon Trees. “[They] launched into their set with energy that seemed to fill the air with electricity.”
Their short yet impressive history includes sharing the stage with global superstars Imagine Dragons and performances with Young The Giant, Kings of Leon, and KONGOS. Brumby was voted Best Local Band in Desert Companion’s Best of The City 2016, was ranked #1 in The Las Vegas Weekly’s 10 Acts to Hear This Year, and were named the winners of the 2014 Velour Battle of The Bands, former winners including Imagine Dragons and Neon Trees.
