Brent Amaker and the Rodeo announce new line up and return to the stage with Grammy winners The Mavericks - Photo by Johnny Podhradsky.

Lance Mercer (famed Pearl Jam photographer and founding member of The Briefs),  and Ryan “Nails” Leyva (guitarist for American Idol’s Blake Lewis), have joined Brent Amaker and the Rodeo as they return to the stage for two exclusive shows with The Mavericks.  The band will perform in Edmonds WA at Edmonds Center for the Arts on Thursday 5/21/15 and in Portland, OR at Revolution Hall on Friday 5/22/15.  Advance tickets for The ECA Special Engagement are already sold out, however additional seating may be available day of show.  General admission advance tickets are still available for Revolution Hall in Portland here.

Brent Amaker is returning to the Rodeo after spending the last year collaborating on an electronic concept science fiction project (Android Amaker) with Seattle hip hop producer P Smoov and electronic producer Vox Mod.  “It’s time to get back to my roots now” said Brent.  “The Rodeo has always been my primary focus, and will continue to be so.  The new band members have added a whole new dimension to the project.  It’s exciting to hear these songs brought to life with such great players.  I can’t wait to take the stage with The Mavericks.”

So good!
 
Every day I'm thankful to live and work in West Seattle.  My State Farm insurance agency gives me that opportunity.  Got off work yesterday and cruised down the hill to La Rustica for some fine italian food.  What a great joint.   Yum!  I'm having left over lasagna tonight!  http://larusticarestaurant.com
La Rustica Restaurant on Beach Drive in West Seattle. One of Seattle's most beloved dinner spots for over 17 years! Daily specials, pastas, and Giulio's famous Lamb Shank served nightly.

Biography
アメリカのシアトルでブレント(ヴォーカル、ギター)を筆頭に2005年に結成された。
彼らは、カントリーバンド、というジャンルを嫌い、現代風ウェスタン、カウボーイミュージックと呼んでいる。アメリカの雑誌では、クェンティンタランティーノの映画のサウンドトラックに使われていそうな音楽、アーティストでは、ジョニーキャッシュ、デビットボウイ、Devoなどのようと言われている。

バンドメンバーは結成から何度か入れ替わって入るが、現在は、多様、多彩なメンバー、タイニーダンサー(リードギター)、シンデレラ(ベース)、ベンステール(リズムギター、コーラス)、ブライアンクロウフォード(ドラム、コーラス)、ジャックウィルス(鉄琴)の6人で活動している。

結成当初、カウボーイモーターサイクルクラブ、と呼ばれていて、バイクに乗って登場し、コンサートが始まる、という形を取っていたが、今は全身黒尽くめ、または白尽くめのカウボーイの格好で登場し、コンサートの合間には、ジプシーを思わせるダンサーが登場したり、小さいパブなどで行われる場合は、ロデオバプティズム、ウィスキーの洗礼、(お客並ばせ、ブレントがウィスキーのショットを一人ずつに飲ませる。)などの、今までみた事の無いパフォーマンスが行われる。

彼らのこだわりと言えば、ツアーが始まり次第、年中カウボーイの格好をして行動をとっているという事である。もちろん飛行機、車の移動中、食事中でさえなので、さすがに目立つことは間違いないが、彼らのカリスマ的存在、美術的センスもファンを魅了する一つである。
地元の人気もまずまずだが、色々な州、国を周るなか、有名までとは言わないが、熱狂的なファンが多く、彼らと同じ格好で現れるなども、珍しくない。
主な活動は、国内ツアー、約15カ所を年に2〜3回、1〜2年に1度、ドイツ、デンマーク、ベルギー、オランダ、ロンドン、他、ヨーロッパを周り、ミュージックビデオ、そして日本ではまだ出てはいないが、アメリカで人気のShowtimeドラマシリーズの”Weeds”、”Californication”、そして、インディーズホラー映画、Jay Cynik 監督、”Punch”にもサウンドトラックとして、曲を提供している。音楽以外でも、コミックブックを制作したり、一番最近のアルバム,Year of the Dragonのカバーを日本の漫画家、岡崎能士さんにお願いするなど、アートの方にも力を注いでいる。

Shadowland is the cornerstone of West Seattle. Great food, great drinks, and great service. This place has history and is a great place to find food and bar industry folks hanging out. That kind of says something, doesn't it? So good. If you want to be around real West Seattle folks, this is the place.
