With a total of twelve studio albums -- four gold, three platinum and one six-times platinum -- they have sold more than 10 million combined units worldwide, and played over 2,000 live shows in front of more than 30 million people. Their hit "Run-Around" is the longest-charting radio single in Billboard history, and earned them a Grammy® for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.

The group’s most recent release, Blow Up The Moon, was its first collaborative album. Keeping an open-minded perspective on making music, the unique and successful process enlisted a range of artists across the musical spectrum, representing country, pop, reggae and hip-hop.

Keyboardist Ben Wilson says, “Time to load up the gear and get the BT party bus rolling! We are pumped to be back on the road and rocking out for all the BT fans out there!”

Filtered through the waters of Alabama's Black Warrior River, CBDB's Joyfunk emerges from the muddy depths bringing to light a crisp, revolving blend of progressive rock, funk, jam, and fusion.
phone.keys.wallet., CBDB's debut album, was released in November 2012 and saw rapid success with hook heavy songs like Slow Foxes reaching 22K+ plays on spotify.
CBDB is currently preparing to release their second album, Joyfunk is Dead, in early 2015. The facetiously titled sophomore effort takes Joyfunk down a more progressive route while still keeping its hook and groove oriented roots. CBDB has built a strong
presence through steady touring of the Southeast playing headlining shows to dedicated followings in rooms like The Jupiter,
Zydeco, Bourbon Street, Smiths Olde Bar, Terminal West, The Camel, Proud Larry's and Exit/In. They have shared the stage with acts including Umphreys McGee, Earphunk, The Wailers, B.o.B., The Revivalists, Col. Bruce Hampton (Ret.), Moon Taxi, Mike Jones, Seven Handle Circus, Octopus Nebula, The Vegabonds, Space Capone among many others.
"CBDB is one of the most exciting bands to come out of the Southeast in years. The
buzz about the band is very reminiscent of Widespread Panic in the late 80's. CBDB proves
you don't need computers to make great music." -Rick Stowe, Managing Director and
Partner-East Coast Entertainment
LAWRENCE is an 8-piece soul-pop group based in New York City led by siblings Clyde and Gracie Lawrence. Drawing from the songwriting of The Beatles and the soul of Stevie Wonder, Lawrence (formerly Clyde Lawrence) released its debut EP, Homesick, in 2013, and has since been performing regularly at clubs and colleges in the Northeast. Their high-energy live shows combine soul and funk, R&B and pop, weaving dynamic vocal harmonies, crisp horns, and a tight rhythm section into their keyboard-based grooves to create a distinctively vintage yet modern sound. LAWRENCE is currently in the studio with Eric Krasno (Soulive, Lettuce) and will release their debut album in the Fall of 2015.

Clyde Lawrence began playing piano and writing music at the age of 4. At the age of 6, Clyde was admitted to the Songwriters Guild of America as its youngest member for his work on Miss Congeniality (2000). Since then he has been composing songs and scores for a variety of films, and has performed on ABC's Good Morning America, Fox's Good Morning New York, and NBC'sThe Today Show. While assembling the beginnings of the Lawrence band, Clyde released Homesick. Partially produced by acclaimed songwriter/producer Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne/That Thing You Do!), the EP has continued to serve as a basis for the group's constantly evolving sound and repertoire.

Homesick also featured vocals from Clyde's younger sister, Gracie Lawrence. In addition to her music career, Gracie is also an accomplished actress, having performed on Broadway in Neil Simon's Brighton Beach Memoirs, and films and TV shows such as The Sitter (2011), The Good Wife (2012), and The Americans (2014). Clyde and Gracie, now 21 and 18, have been playing, writing, and performing together for over fifteen years.
