Matt Como plays bass and sings vocals while Andrew Como plays lead guitar and also sings. They are known for their extremely catchy lyrics and melodies in every song they write. The Como Brothers Band have opened for acts such as Howie Day, David Cook, Tyler Ward, PJ Morton of Maroon 5, Ryan Beatty and more. They have released 2 EPs, The Speed of Sound and Still Waters and a full-length album titled Baby Steps.

The Como Brothers Band have won many awards for their music, including 2014 IMEA Pop Album of the Year, 2014 Artists In Music Award 5 nominations, finalists in the Hard Rock Rising 2013, and have had their music featured in programs like Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Canon Consumer Electronics commercial, the movie Wingman Inc., and more.

The band has performed at the Hard Rock Cafe Times Square, The Cutting Room, Highline Ballroom, Nassau Coliseum Warped Tour, the Jones Beach Amphitheatre Side Stage, Theater Three, Amityville Music Hall, Webster Hall and more.

Most recently, the band has recorded their latest EP that is set to be released in early 2015. The EP was recorded in early October at Germano Studios in NYC. Playing drums on the EP was Grammy award winning drummer Steve Jordan who has played for John Mayer and the John Mayer Trio, and Andy Burton who also plays for John Mayer.

The record was produced by Grammy award winning producer Graham Marsh, who has produced for artists like Bruno Mars and Cee-Lo Green. They are already starting to line up performances for 2015. Also, they just recently played their first headlining show at Theater Three in Port Jefferson, New York and sold the highest number of tickets they have so far. The band has also reached out and made fans in places like Philadelphia, Rhode Island, Boston, and New York City.

A great and unique characteristic about these brothers is that they always put the fans first. They take time after every single show to talk to fans, even people who have never seen them before, and get to know them. They really enjoy building that relationship and creating more than just a performer-viewer experience.
