With a love for hard in your face music and Jesus, the four members began writing songs
that displayed the gospel message and in your face punk rock. The first full show was
with Destroy Nate Allen at the Hole in Omaha, NE and after many shows around the
Omaha area the band was in full stride developing their style. A year later Jared moved
on to college and The Bricks picked up Mathew Lewis as their new drummer. Mathew
and Kelly had played together before in another local group. Mathew tossed some new
ideas into the ring and his first show with The Bricks was an opener up for Flatfoot 56.
The Bricks don’t hold back and will play with anyone who asks no matter the size of the
crowd. Their songs are deeply personal and show their love for Jesus and the roots of
punk rock as well as their thoughts on life, love and unity. Their shows are energetic and
bring a little bit from everywhere in the musical world. Jimmy, Chris, Kelly & Mathew
are The Bricks- straight out of Omaha, NE.
