Band’s “Elevator Sessions” Spread Smiles in San Francisco

Beleaguered, achy and sweaty after holiday shopping, imagine you step into an elevator and encounter a five-piece bluegrass band belting out an upbeat, rocking rendition of the Beatles’ Eleanor Rigby. That’s exactly what happened to shoppers in a San Francisco Macy’s recently, courtesy of local band The Brothers Comatose, consisting of brothers Ben and Alex Morrison, who play guitar and banjo, respectively, rounded out by a trio of gents on bass, violin and mandolin. The spectacle is part of the group’s Elevator Sessions series, in which they surprise riders with impromptu performances. These “brothers” are the antithesis and comatose, smiling and interacting with riders and they masterfully harmonize. It’s clear the band members were thrilled to help spread smiles during the sometimes stressful holiday season. They even stopped to pose with Santa. Check out their Eleanor Rigby cover below!
