The Bemiss Brothers

Piano, Organ, Synths: Al Bemiss
The Bemiss Brothers, Al and Burnell, emerge here in "The Moment I Believed" as a fusion of cultural legacy and spiritual upbringing married to a unique, New Orleans approach to Gospel music. Their music origins echo the heritage, mystery, and specialness of many "Big Easy" music makers. Al and Burnell's father was the Reverend Walter Bemiss, whose ministry was located at Fifth African Baptist Church, on South Robertson Street. Fifth African Baptistprovided the incubation for a love for music, performance, and spiritual training. Al began playing organ solos at his father's church with his instructor, William Houston, Jr.. Al played with a string of bands in the late 60s and 70s which developed his early pop style, most notably with Johnny Taylor and Candi Staton. Al has worked as pianist for Clarence "Frogman" Henry nearly 20 years. In addition, Al was the music director and pianist with the touring cast of "One Mo' Time. During that time, healso performed sacred music, his sustenance, both culturally and spiritually. Al has played music at many churches in New Orleans, and currently plays at Beecher Memorial United Church of Christ. Also, Al teaches music eagerly, passing on his tremendous gifts.
