Box Set Duo-Trio:The Man Behind the Guitar

Jeff Person and Jim Brunberg first met, and started playing together at a cafe called Simple Pleasures in San Francisco’s Sunset District in the early 1990’s. Their band, Box Set, has recorded seven albums and has won Bay Area Music Awards for Best Club Band and Outstanding Americana/Roots Band, and a “Group of the Year” award from the National Academy of Songwriters. They have performed with many renowned artists and groups including Dave Matthews Band, Barenaked Ladies, Lenny Kravitz, Willie Nelson, Hot Tuna, Blues Traveler, and the Goo Goo Dolls.

Now, after a seven-year break, Jeff and Jim are playing together again – and they’ve just added a third player, Portland-based Ben Landsverk to the Duo-well Trio. Come see them play at Summer Sounds at the Lesher on Thursday July 20th 5:30 to 7pm in the Lesher Center Plaza!

DRAA was lucky enough to interview Guitarist Jeff Pehrson at the actual cafe where he first crossed paths with Jim!
