August Band of The Month- The Blue Rose Band
“I’m not that naughty, but I’ve got a dirty smile”
The Blue Rose Band emerged from the depths of southern rock n roll with a front porch, whiskey and rye core of the blues. Formed in 2006 when longtime friends, guitarist Jimmy Rose and drummer Trevor Hammer were inspired by the talents of the sassy and sexy vocalist Amanda Peachey. In 2008, bassist Mark Blades brought his gritty yet refined barrage on the rhythm section to complete the lineup. With influences such as Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and The Black Crowes, this Arizona based band has an original, down home, rock n roll sound to compliment an energetic live show that will keep you moving and always wanting more.
The Blue Rose Band’s debut album “Home” was released in the late summer of 2008. “Home” was engineered and produced by four time Grammy nominee and Double Platinum Award winner, Ralph Patlan (Jamie Foxx, Megadeth, Brian “Head” Welch among others). This album has a guitar driven, swamp boogie flavor with soulful lyrics and an in your face rock n' roll edge. The combination created a vintage sound with a modern day twist that will make you want to savor it for years to come. “Home” is “a unique blues and rock album with a classic feel,” says KWSS 106.7FM’s Rob Fowler. “Home” is currently distributed worldwide through Itunes and CD Baby.
