Brother Yusef
If you love the Blues played with intensity and fat vocal style, Brother Yusef is the musician of choice at the Downtown Disney District. A master solo guitarist and uniquely passionate vocalist, Brother Yusef is known for combining “traditional” finger picking and slide guitar techniques with contemporary urban blues. With “…one foot in the past and one foot in the present,” this Fatt-Back Bluesman creates a lasting impression.

While schedules are subject to change, Brother Yusef is currently slated to perform at the House of Blues area of the Downtown Disney District. Check downtowndisney.com/anaheim for specific performance dates and times.

If you’ve heard Brother Yusef perform, what do you think?


  • My autistic daughters love Brother Yusef. He took time to be with them during a break.

  • Brother Yusef is great! I also like that it offers up a bit of diversity from the usual latin sounds that Downtown Disney books often. It’s great to have some diversity and unique offerings in the mix, aside from the predictable latin rythyms heard so very, very often at Downtown Disney.

  • Brother Yusef is easily my favorite performer in DTD. His music is fantastic! Everytime I see him, i make note to stay for at least one song.

  • Love Brother! Bought two CDs from him last week!

  • Saw him in Sept 2009 and he was spectacular. Alot of fun and energy. HE Stopped me in my tracks. 🙂

  • Hello, my question has nothing to do with the blog. But I wanted to knw if disneyland resort will b hosting a victory parade for the lakers this year. I was there this morning but didn’t get much information from the cast members. Hope to hear from you.
