Special Brew was formed in 1974 by Mick, Step and Dave Braithwaite.
Starting out as a five piece band they quickly gained a large following after playing their own blend of jazz, blues and funk at local venues such as Dingwalls, Ronnie Scots, amongst others.
After a long break the three original members went on to form the band Realta, who have a regular spot at Jazz after Dark on Friday nights. After the passing of Dave they decided to revert back to something closer to their original name and adopted the name The Brew.
