“With just two old guitars, an upright bass and a bucket full of aching harmony, The Goat Roper Rodeo Band are out there preaching ‘country blues’, like you’ve never heard!”
With an awe inspiring ‘live show’ that’s guaranteed to raise the roof, swinging from the most tender heartfelt paean to the blues, to the highest full throttle, barn storming, juke joint boogie stompers, theirs is a show that’s wowing audiences across the land.
The Goat Ropers are: Tom (Double Bass / Vocals), Jim (Lead Guitar / Vocals) and Sam (Rhythm Guitar / Vocals).
We are delighted to team up with the brilliant Harbour Records in Emsworth, to bring you one of our favourites, and certainly one of the most exciting live bands currently on the Americana scene, the scintillating Goat Roper Rodeo Band! Since we first caught these boys at Maverick Festival a few years ago they have sold out 2 Square Tower shows in Old Portsmouth, as well as being part of Square Roots recent sold out launch night at The Studio @ The Petersfield School. We were desperate to bring them back again, so here we are with our friends at Harbour Records bringing you a show in a new venue for us. Capity is only 60, so this is going to be a real treat to catch these boys up close and personal…and this WILL sell out! Be quick!!
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…they look great, sound great and they’ve got a bunch of absolutely brilliant songs … and that’s the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth…amen!!
Nominated for “Best UK Live Act” by Spiral Earth
What The Critics Say….
“Wonderfully executed acoustic country blues with two guitars, a double bass and plaintive striking harmonies, and a musical landscape driven by old timey sensibilities …there’s a lot to like about the Goat Roper Rodeo Band.” (R2 Magazine)
“Man, how can some so young be so sad….and so perfect!” (Ian Dunlop – Gram Parsons / Flying Burrito Bros).
“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” (Romeo Stodart- The Magic Numbers).
