With just an upright bass, two old guitars and a bucketful of aching harmony, THE GOAT ROPER RODEO BAND are preaching ‘Country Blues’ like you never heard… It’s up, it’s down, it’s soft and loud, it’s dark and lonesome too, there’s hurt and shame and some mean old pain but there’s love in what they do! There’s a hint of Gram, a sniff of Dylan and a twist of Waylon’s blues … Simply put, it’s exactly what it says on the tin.
“Man, how can some so young be so sad….and so perfect!”
“A fresh, energetic three-piece acoustic band who combine great vocal harmonies with up-beat, self-penned songs to make a memorable live show.”
“With refreshing, startling vocal harmonies and quirky song writing skills, these young’uns can roll out a fab sombre number just as well as an upbeat one, the Goat Roper Rodeo Band possess a uniqueness and quality that promises success and lovers of this old timey sound are simply going to love this.”
“Wonderfully executed acoustic country blues with two guitars, a double bass and plaintive striking harmonies, a musical landscape driven by old timey sensibilities …there’s a lot to like about the Goat Roper Rodeo Band.”
“The Goat Roper Rodeo Band take a slightly psychedelic route to the finish line and include some serious footstompin’ rock ‘n’ roll along the way, Mix in a little gospel fire and a sprinkle of Gram and these boys ruled our last afternoon”
“The Goat Ropers are the real deal ! I was blown away when I first saw them play and heard them harmonise, I wanted desperately to join in. If there’s any justice in this crazy world, they’ll soon be a household name and we’ll all be keeping it country with them”
“Like the Everlys fronted by Gram Parsons”
