Rodeo Ruby Love
Rodeo Ruby Love is a pop band from Indiana made up of seven friends who strive to create fun and catchy songs that will get stuck in your head and make you sing out loud. Known for their energetic live performances, the band gets its sound by mixing their hardcore and punk roots with eclectic 60's and contemporary indie pop. Recently, RRL just finished up a tour with Streeghtlight Manifesto and Reel Big Fish!
As long as I’ve known Frank Schweikhardt he’s rarely stayed in the same geographic location for more than 6 months at a time. Whether he’s driving a truckload of fireworks around the Bible Belt, cruising around southeast Asia on a newly purchased and perfectly rickety used motorcycle, nursing a mixed drink on the beaches of Costa Rica, or experiencing America in his new job driving gigantic tour buses for bands who have ten times his money and only half his horse sense, Frank is perfectly adept at soaking in the places that make up the world and the people that make up those places.
Busman's Holiday is a two person band blending the melodic charm of lo-fi acoustics with the ecstatic showmanship of classic rock 'n' roll. The singer/songwriter duo is accompanied by a string section who fill out their complexly euphonic ballads of love, loss, lust and outer space. Born and raised in Bloomington, Indiana, the pair and their intrepid band of string playing companions have toured the U.S. and Canada extensively the past three years, recently appearing on Day Trotter and If You Make It's Pink Couch Sessions.
Though adept in a D.I.Y. aesthetic of acoustic busking with only a guitar and a suitcase drum set, the brothers are equally at home when sharing the stage with their three talented string players, who add a rich, layered musical texture to their unique songs of wanderlust and first love. Evoking a classic tent-show rock sound joined with the affable atmosphere of the assured vaudevillian, Busman's Holiday both charms and impresses with their own unique blend of humor and assured musical talent.
