The Rock Bottom Boys
Professional touring band, THE ROCK BOTTOM BOYS, have been serving up a ‘bone-a-fied’ act to audiences across the western states since 2009 exciting and entertaining all ages with spine tingling three part harmonies, homespun vocal styling, boot stomping music and well-seasoned showmanship.
THE ROCK BOTTOM BOYS tickle brains and warp reality by singing iconic rock hits like ‘Pinball Wizard’ and ‘Gimme Three Steps’ to tunes like ‘Wabash Cannonball’ or ‘Mountain Dew’ gluing audiences to their seats in anticipation of what might be next. While the heart pumping music alone is irresistible, once engaged folks are riveted by the boys’ back porch clowning and hillbilly notions.
THE ROCK BOTTOM BOYS have the versatility to perform in venues of all sizes ranging from small intimate rooms to large amphitheaters. Their shows are light hearted, humorous, and intimate good fun for audiences from age 8 to 80.
Imagine if you put R. Kelly through a banjo.
Led by frontman and beard enthusiast Moses Barrett, The Junebugs combine high-energy pop with Pacific Northwest folksy goodness to create a genre-bending sound you can kick up your heels to.
The Junebugs originated on the Vancouver, BC circuit before migrating south to Portland, OR. There, guitarist Barrett picked up drummer Kyle Owen and bassist Sean Vinson, equally bearded and hailing from impressive musical backgrounds. Covering everything from Tom Petty to TLC to Lorde, the eclectic taste of the trio ranges from turn-of-the-century Americana to modern Hip Hop, with a strong emphasis on vocal harmony. Their original tunes have a dreamy, sweet quality reminiscent of Neil Young and Iron & Wine, peppered with fiery banjo lines. There is something for everyone here.
“The American songbook is alive and well, and it didn’t end in the 1950’s,” Barrett says.
