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 Portsmouth, and finally we’re delighted to announce that they are indeed returning for a full-on headline show at the Square Tower, 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!!
“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)
