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! 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!
We’ve had so many people asking us when the amazing Goat Roper Rodeo Band will be returning to Petersfield, and finally we’re delighted to announce that they are indeed returning for a full-on headline show at The Studio @ The Petersfield School, and what’s more they’ll be celebrating the release of their brand spanking new album with us! And you know what? It’s an absolute corker!! And as an added bonus we have up and coming Petersfield Americana band The Mantic Muddlers as special guests!
“In my opinion, the Goat Roper Rodeo Band are the most exciting live band on the UK Americana scene at the moment!” (Ken Brown, SRP)
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 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).
The Goat Ropers are: Tom (Double Bass / Vocals), Jim (Lead Guitar / Vocals) and Sam (Rhythm Guitar / Vocals). 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!!
“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)
The Mantic Muddlers
Local boys The Mantic Muddlers will be bringing their own home-grown “roots, rattle and roll” to us as well. Combining a rich influence of sonic stylings and serving up their stories on a foundation of infectious grooves and raucous melodies, they have a soundscape that pays tribute to the rich history of roots music whilst pushing forward into new territory. Songs that walk a tightrope between fiction and reality are put forth on such instruments as the searing violin, thunderous double bass and resonator guitar, and then enriched with a coating of heartfelt vocal harmonies!
