The Good Brothers

The Good Brothers are a Canadian country, bluegrass and folk music group originating from Richmond Hill, Ontario. The band's core members are Brian Good (guitar), his twin brother Bruce Good (autoharp) and younger brother Larry Good (banjo).

Brian and Bruce Good initially joined guitarist James Ackroyd to form the band James and the Good Brothers in 1969. Their self-titled album was released on Columbia Records in 1972. After a tour itinerary throughout North America, including a Toronto concert opening for Grand Funk Railroad, the Goods wished to return to Canada while Ackroyd sought to continue in the United States.

In 1973, younger brother Larry Good joined the twins to form a new band which first performed 14 May 1974 in Toronto at The Riverboat club. Since then, the band has extensively toured Canada, United States and Europe. Their role in Canadian music was strengthened by winning the Juno Award for Country Group or Duo for eight consecutive years from 1977 to 1984.

The Good Brothers were supplemented by other musicians such as John P. Allen (fiddle) and Bruce's son Travis Good of The Sadies (guitar and mandolin). Kevin Luciani plays the stand-up bass just as often as John P. Allen. Travis was a regular member of The Good Brothers when Larry took a leave of absence throughout the 1990s.

The Main members are Bruce, Brian, and Larry Good. John P. Allen, and Kevin Luciani are half-members.

Kevin Luciani has a daughter named Jennifer. They reside in Newmarket, Ontario
