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.

The Goat Roper Rodeo Band build on what The White Stripes began in finding the perfect fusion of original blues and indie folk … What Nirvana did to punk rock, I sincerely believe The Goat Roper Rodeo Band can do to indie folk….. The Indie Folk Music Review (USA) 

Wonderfully executed acoustic country blues with two guitars, a double bass and plaintive striking harmonies, a musical landscape driven by old timey sensibilities …there’s a lot to like about the Goat Roper Rodeo Band – R2 Magazine

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 afternoonSpiral Earth

Where the Goat Roper Rodeo Band score big is their innate ability to hone an identifiable sound and feel that is immediately recognisable as their own … “Cosmic Country Blue” a shot in the arm for the Americana genre as a whole… Fatea (UK)

The Goat Roper Rodeo Band are neither imitating or interpreting, they are pure inspiration, writing their own material, songs which are worthy of being covered by any of the great names in cosmic American music past or present …. Penny Black Music (UK)

The Goat Roper Rodeo Band sound as though they’ve been pickled in moonshine for generations, the harmonies flow easily, the songs sound like standards and as authentic as a sweat stained, sun bleached John Deere hat … A band that look and sound the part … Americana-UK (UK)


WILD BILL & THE LOST KNOBS are a high-energy roots rock band from Austin, Texas. Heavily influenced by music from Austin’s trademark 70s era, the band combines blues and country with other progressive styles to satisfy the dancers, the rockers, the rollers, and anyone else who hears them play. They look and sound like they were sent straight out of a time machine from the Armadillo World Headquarters in 1978, and quite possibly smell like it too. The band formed in a slow cooker starting with a singer songwriter show in a coffee shop.
