Two Evenings of Cosmic Country Blues with…. The Goat Roper Rodeo Band
“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).

Hewitts (28th September) – Online Ticket Link: www.wegottickets.com/event/469984
We’re partnering with Harbour Records in Emsworth for this lovely little show. Another chance to catch the Goat Roper boys here following their sell out show there last year, and more recently their sold out show at Old Portsmouth’s Square Tower for us earlier this year! This is only a small venue so as always we’d recommend getting tickets early if you can. Tickets are only £14 in advance (£16 on the door if not sold out, but it WILL be!!).
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!
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). 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!!
