Hans and Kit Mayer have been making music together since they were old enough to pick up guitars. Wherever they go, their mischievous groove and winning mix of heartfelt originals and carefully chosen covers always leaves audiences smiling and happy.

That live mojo has now been captured on Stay Out of the Rain, the debut studio album from the Mayer Brothers Band on Momentous Records.

Kit (electric and acoustic guitar) and Hans (bass, mandolin, acoustic guitar) share songwriting and lead vocals on the project. They’re joined by Mark Davini (accordion, keyboards), Tom Gibbons (guitar, bass) and Terry Nirva (drums).

Recorded by Grammy Award-winning engineer Brett Huus at his Crooked Creek studio on the Mississippi River in southeast Minnesota, the album showcases nine original songs by Hans and Kit, plus a Mayer Brothers Band take on a tune by one of their favorite songwriters. For now, the CD is available exclusively at the band's live shows.
