He has played with everyone, he has toured everywhere, he can lead a raucous big band or hold an audience silent with a solo acoustic blues. Brombergs sensitive and versatile approach to guitar-playing has earned him a coveted position as the first call, hired gun guitarist for recording sessions, ultimately playing on hundreds of records by artists including Bob Dylan (New Morning, Self Portrait, Dylan), with Jerry Garcia, George Harrison, Link Wray, The Eagles, Ringo Starr, Willie Nelson, and Carly Simon. Brombergs range of material based in the folk and blues idioms has continually expanded with each new album to encompass bluegrass, ragtime, country and ethnic music.

He played for a few years with a couple of friends in The Third Wheel Band, an Americana/Roots act out of New York City. They played countless gigs and made two albums together, On Willow Street and Family Album. He wrote a couple of the tunes on those records, played gutar, and sang. While that was going on he was also writing original music for the Brooklyn based kids program Sign-a-Song: A Musical Introduction to Sign Language and teaching early childhood music classes at more preschools, daycares, and learning centers!
