Popular local rock ‘n’ soul band T Bird and the Breaks has announced plans to go on an “indefinite hiatus,” blaming the rigors of seven years spent on the road as the primary reason for the break. The band’s 2015 album “Harmonizm” has been well-received by many, including our own Peter Blackstock who called the record an “immediately appealing set of soulful R&B and funk.” Without shutting out the possibility of a possible reunion at some point in the future the band members say for now, “the vehicle that is T Bird & the Breaks is not moving forward.”

Lead singer Tim “T-Bird” Crane released the following statement through the band’s publicist:

“Thanks to all of you for your love and support for T Bird & the Breaks throughout the years. We’re going to retire our dancing shoes and wrap this thing up so we can individually pursue other goals and what-have-you.  There’ll be new non-Breaks music from me and others in the future so stay tuned.”

The band’s final shows are Friday and Saturday Aug. 28-29 at the Continental Club. Tickets to the shows will be $15 (at the door only).
