Red Light Rodeo
Red Light Rodeo
Red Light Rodeo has been spreading their innovative take on country, bluegrass and traditional music in your favorite barrooms, music festivals, and listening rooms around Virginia and the mid-Atlantic region since early 2012. The Rodeo mixes age old words and melodies with the raw rock and roll energy of hard-edged country and honky-tonk to create original music and traditional renderings that keeps their fan base coming back for more.

Wes Canter leads the band with his tobacco stained crooning and heavy-hitting rhythm guitar. Zach Hudgins brings masterfully delivered thumping standup bass with floor rattling solos and sings high harmony vocals. Zack Miller works double duty playing blistering leads on both mandolin and fiddle (sometimes in the same song!) all while singing middle and bass harmonies. Together their musical backgrounds cover the gambit from classic country music to British whaling ballads, early 20th century swing, gospel, funk, and of course, traditional old-time Appalachian music.

At their core Red Light Rodeo has been called a "bluegrass power trio" but the band believes the music they play could more aptly be described as "honkgrass" since even their bluegrass and folk music is tinged heavily with a country sound and feel.

Red Light Rodeo also frequently performs as a 5-piece with the Rodeo All-Stars, bringing veteran heavyweight Richmond musicians Jake Sellers (washboard/drums) and Kent South (electric guitar/lap steel) onto the stage.

The Rodeo released their first 5 song EP, Nothing But the Nuts, in June of 2014. They plan to release a 7" single in Spring of 2014 and will enter the studio to begin recording their first full length album in the Spring.

"Shagwüf isn't reinventing the wheel, just putting a cool spin on a tried and true concept.. Stylistically they are reminiscent of LA's 'X', with a little nod to 'the Pixies' while leaning a little more towards the punk end of the hard rock spectrum with just the right amount of hard blues and psychedelia to invoke early metal pioneers like 'Black Sabbath', all wrapped up in a slightly twangy, swampy package that is sure to keep your head banging. Sally Rose steps out of her role as Charlottesville's Folk Rock Princess and straps on a bass to lend the driving low end of the band, along with her sultry vocals and song writing prowess. Sweet Pete Stallings (Lost Indian, Sally Rose Band, Secret Ninja) lends his quirky songwriting chops along with his signature riffy guitar style. The two of them provide the vocals for the band, and anyone who has seen the Sally Rose Band knows these two sing well together. Drummer Pablo Oliveri (Pablo & the Dregs, The Murder Bros, Book of Kills, The Findells) attacks the drums like a man on a mission while still finding time to be one of the most tasteful players in the area. Pablo is always a solid part of whatever band he is in, and he is the perfect drummer for this project. The band has found early success due to their solid musicianship, musical reputation. Their debut EP 'Heavy Petting' is infectious. Although it's hard to pick from an EP full of great tunes, highlights include 'Swamp D' and the slinky rocker 'Cassolette'. This band isn't reinventing rock, just keeping it cool!"
