Southwestern Wilds

Why you should see this show…

Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers (or RCPM as they’re affectionately known by fans) have it all, a solid 20-year history of amazing music, a dedicated fan base they frequently tour to perform for, and even their own independent tequila label. From playing college campuses to making their radio debut in the ’90s, to even recording the theme to TV’s King of the Hill, they provide exactly what you want from a Southern rock band with alt-country highlights. There’s a reason their last 7 consecutive albums each hit the top ten of Billboard’s Internet Sales Chart!
 

 

Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers Bio
Hailed as one of the most exciting live acts on the road today, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers are musical beacons of the Southwest fueled by witty and insightful lyrics, crunching guitar riffs, a dynamic rhythm section and tequila. RCPM are the only act to release seven consecutive studio albums to land on the top 10 of Billboard’s Internet Sales Chart, two at No. 1, all released on a 100% independent record label.

Dubbed the “Springsteen of the Southwest” by the Asbury Park Press, Roger Clyne and his guitar have toured around the world over his 20-year career, starting with The Refreshments. The seminal Tempe, Arizona band made big waves in the ’90s both on college and alternative rock radio as well as MTV with the songs “Banditos” (with the infamous chorus, “Everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people”) and “Down Together” as well as writing the theme for TV’s King of the Hill.

More than 20 years later, Clyne and Refreshments drummer PH Naffah, along with bassist Nick Scropos and lead guitarist Jim Dalton keep the songs of The Refreshments alive, while adding to their own ever growing musical legacy. RCPM’s new album, Native Heart, was released on June 30th, 2017.

A testament to their growing and extremely loyal fan base is the band’s annual music festival in Rocky Point, Mexico, called Circus Mexicus. What began as a rooftop show thrown together with extension cords and wooden pallets more than 15 years ago has blossomed into a pilgrimage that draws thousands of fans to the once sleepy fishing village. In 2014, fans from 43 states and 7 countries represented at Circus Mexicus.

Clyne not only sings about life in the border-lands, he also produces his own private label top shelf tequila called Mexican Moonshine. From Gold medals in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition to Gold Ribbons from Tequila Aficionado’s Brands of Promise, accolades have been rolling in. And a bottle of Mexican Moonshine Tequila made a well received “guest appearance” on the Rachel Ray Show.

In 2016, Clyne’s career came full circle as Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers celebrated the 20th anniversary of The Refreshments cult classic debut album, “Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy,” with a residency at the Yucca Tap Room in their hometown of Tempe, followed by a nationwide tour.

 

 

The Black Moods Bio
The Black Moods are a 3-piece rock outfit hailing from Tempe, Arizona, by way of the Missouri Ozarks. Comprised of Josh Kennedy (lead guitarist/vocalist), Jordan Hoffman (bassist), and Danny “Chico” Diaz (drums), the trio blends various Rock & Roll styles that span from the past 4 decades to form their own signature sound that resembles what would be the musical offspring of Bad Company and the Foo Fighters.

This band is bringing a new level of heat out of the Sonora desert led by one of the most electric front men/guitarists in music today. The Black Moods bring what rock music has been missing for some time – PURE, EFFORTLESS TALENT. The band’s self-titled debut album is packed with a healthy dose of guitar driven power houses such as “Can’t Sleep at Night” & “Like A Wave,” to compelling sing-along anthems like “Hey You” & “Don’t Let Them Get You Down.” Their live shows are filled with high energy, infectious guitar solos and attitude that can keep the crowds’ attention for hours. Having received acclaimed praise from fans and critics alike as equal parts natural talent and live performance superstars, the group delivers powerful guitar riffs, melodic bass and drum beats that make your heart pound like a kick drum. Fresh out of the studio with producers Kenny Carkeet (AWOLNATION) and Jim Kaufman (Helmet, Opiate for the Masses), The Black Moods have been touring since their debut album was released in April 2012. Don’t miss your chance to see this band live and get your own personal glimpse of rock & roll history in the making.
