Brewer and Shipley with Special Guest Batdorf and Rodney
MICHAEL BREWER & TOM SHIPLEY are truly two who work as one. Still as passionate as ever, they continue to blend guitars and voices and perform for audiences 50 years after their trademark vocal harmonies and intertwined acoustic guitars carved a unique niche in America's soundboard. Their melodic music and underlying lyrical themes of personal freedom and traditional songs of love still resonate with long time fans while continuing to draw new ones. Brewer & Shipley's Top 10 hit "One Toke Over The Line" was largely responsible for introducing them to the masses, yet their music careers neither began nor ended with this one song.
John Batdorf and Mark Rodney, began performing in the summer of 1970 in Las Vegas. They toured extensively with many of the most famous acts of the 1970s and included playing Carnegie Hall. They issued three albums on three different labels between 1971 and 1975. Two singles hit the charts, "You Are a Song" and "Somewhere in the Night,"
