St. Anthony’s High School graduates Matthew and Andrew Como will be touring around Long Island this summer as pop-rock band The Como Brothers.
The brothers, who graduated from the South Huntington high school in 2007 and 2009, are in pursuit of fulfilling their musical dreams.
“Music is our passion in life,” Matt said. “The feeling we get from performing our songs and bringing a smile to people’s faces through music is just the best.”
Influenced by the music of the Beatles, which they listened to growing up, the brothers said they’re excited to release more heart-felt, pop-rock tunes, including single “First Time,” which will release soon with a music video.
The Como Brothers have shared their original songs, telling stories of their own experiences, with crowds across the country. “Forming a connection with an audience is the coolest thing about music,” Andrew said. “It’s something I’ll never get over.”
The brothers will look to connect with the crowd at the Jones Beach Bandshell this Friday with a performance set to begin at 7 p.m. “We would love to see everyone at a show,” Matt said.
Their tour across Long Island, and to select venues in the northeast, will continue through the rest of this year, including an Aug. 8 stop at nearby Lithology Brewing in Farmingdale.
