August 10, 2009, LOS ANGELES, CA – After capturing their 54th ATP World Tour Doubles Career Title, and record 5th LA Tennis Open Championship, #1 ATP World Tour Doubles Team Bob & Mike Bryan announced today that they also plan to conquer the music world with the help of close friend and accomplished singer/songwriter David Baron. The group, The Bryan Brothers Band Featuring David Baron, will perform three new songs on Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day at the 2009 US Open from their debut album Let It Rip which will be released September 1, 2009.
Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day will be held on August 29th, 2009 starting at 9:30 a.m. at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, New York, with the Bryan Brothers Band Featuring David Baron scheduled to play on the Festival Stage between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day will be filmed by CBS and will air on Sunday, August 30th. Also on Sunday, the Bryan Brother’s will join Baron for a special set at The Mercury Lounge in New York City where they are scheduled to take the stage at 7:00 p.m.
The album, Let It Rip, is currently being produced in Los Angeles by producer Ralph Churchwell, and will contain five songs that feature Bob Bryan playing the bass and keyboards, Mike Bryan on the drums, and David Baron as the lead vocalist also playing piano and guitar.
“Music has always been a big part of our lives. We’ve spent countless hours jamming in hotel rooms all over the world and it’s been our dream to do a real record. We’ve had a blast making this album and we hope to share our passion for music with our fans,” said Bob Bryan.
The Bryan Brothers, who are the 2008 US Open Doubles Champions, are the owners of 7 Grand Slam Championships, the 2007 Davis Cup title, the 2008 Men’s Doubles Olympic Bronze Medal and have been ranked #1 in the world the past five of six years. They have been playing musical instruments since their youth, and they recently teamed up with lead vocalist David Baron in 2008 after he performed at their Bryan Brothers Charity Dinner Gala. Since then, the three of them have become fast friends and have been co-writing songs together. In 2009, they have performed at four different ATP World Tour events including San Jose, Delray Beach, Houston and most recently Wimbledon.
The Bryan Brothers Band Featuring David Baron will release their first album with several special packaging options for fans including digital downloads, hard copies, autographed memorabilia, special VIP show tickets and backstage passes amongst other limited edition items. The Band will also launch a new website – www.bryanbrosband.com – to showcase their music to fans, and expect to have it live before their debut at Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day.
