Tim often plays as a solo act, with over 3 hours of great original material.

For most stage shows, Tim is joined by the Nomads:
Mike Arturi – Drums
John Wright – Bass
Dan Neale – Guitar

If the occasion warrants a larger group he also has players standing by to add:
piano, vocals, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, pedal steel guitar, and organ.

Tim also plays in an acoustic duo with Joe Filipovich, doing a mixture of classic rock and 90’s hits.
His full band, Hot Dish, has been playing rock covers for 17 years. They are tight and energetic.

“[Crooked Lines is] an extremely well-crafted album, part Americana, part country, heartfelt and worth repeated listening.”

June 2012 – Victory Review Magazine – John C. McClure
“The album is a classy blend of good production, well thought out lyrics, snappy rhythms, quality vocals, excellent guitar playing and a liberal dose of Great Lakes heart. I liked it a lot, and I’m betting you will too.”

Oct. 11 2011 – St. Paul Examiner – Monica Millsap Rasmussen

“Cheesebrow uses an extensive musical background to compose soft melodies, allowing listeners to hone in on lyrics that, while personal, are also likely universal.”

“While it is traditional in this genre to tell stories of overcoming hardship, inspirational messages can be overdone. Cheesebrow is cautious to not overdo his enthusiasm for a better world. However, a critical listener may not understand the need to spur an audience into enlightenment so much in one album.

Then, one considers the title of this album. The Moments Between. Everyone has had those times in both happy and sad times: waiting to hear from a loved one, waiting for the warmth of the sun, waiting for an end to suffering, waiting for the start of a new life together with one you love. All of that waiting make up the title of this album. During the wait, we comfort ourselves with encouragement. Tim Cheesebrow is simply giving us a story on life, the good, the bad, and those moments in between.”

Cheesebrow: musician, photographer, music education by Emily Buss

” While promoting his latest album by giving fans one hell of a show, he also donates a lot of his profits to area schools and their music departments. A chat with Cheesebrow shows giving back is more important than ever.”
