The Fabulous Downey Brothers are an award-winning 6-piece Olympia, WA band known for high energy performances with a dash of theatrics and the bizarre. Drawing comparisons to They Might Be Giants, Devo, The B-52's and The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo, the only thing you can expect at a Fabulous Downey Brothers show is the unexpected. In addition to opening for The B-52's at Marymoor Park, they have previously played such venues as Chop Suey, High Dive, Blue Moon, and Columbia City Theatre and continue to play shows throughout the Seattle and Olympia area. The band includes Sean Downey (vocals), Liam Downey (drums), Chandra Farnsworth (vocals), Alex Link (guitar), Frederick Dobler (bass), and Myrtice Dobler (keyboards).
