With just an upright bass, two old guitars and a bucketful of aching harmony, The Goat Roper Rodeo Band are preaching ‘Country Blues’ like you 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. They've been performing solidly across the UK and in Europe the last few years and have been picking up new fans and supporters wherever they go.
“Like the Everlys fronted by Gram Parsons”Fatea
“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 Roper Rodeo Band take a slightly psychedelic route to the finish line and include some serious footstompin’ rock ‘n’ roll along the way, Mix in a little gospel fire and a sprinkle of Gram and these boys ruled our last afternoon”Spiral Earth
