Welcome to Silver City Rodeo’s home on the web. A Lancaster-based seven-piece drawing from a deep well of musicians and varying instruments, Silver City Rodeo is capable of stripping down their sound to meet the needs of any given venue in both arrangement and volume. From the energy and passion of a full-band set to more intimate performances, their music spans the traditional complement of acoustic and electric guitars, bass and drums to include more unique tools of the trade such as fiddle, lap steel, mandolin, accordion, banjo and hand percussion. Include both male and female lead vocalists, and the result is full of both instrumental nuance and complex harmonies. Simply categorizing Silver City Rodeo as Americana doesn’t do the band justice. Their diverse sound includes elements of blues, folk, bluegrass, classic country and indie rock.
Silver City Rodeo has steadily increased their presence and fan base in the region since their inception a few short years ago. Previously selected as a WXPN “Philly local pick of the day,” they have received airplay on WXPN, 105.7 The X, The River 97.3, CMR Nashville 24/7 internet radio, MyRuralRadio.com and WHTM ABC 27 television, and have shared the stage with multi-million-album-selling artists and national acts. They continue to be featured in an increasing number of print and online publications.
The band is currently in the middle of writing and recording a four-part series of releases. The first in the series, “The Spring EP,” was released in June 2014, with the second release scheduled for January 2015. Ultimately, all four releases will be joined into one full-length album. You can purchase your copy of the band’s current and previous releases today on iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby, or Bandcamp, or by clicking on the cover art to the left.
Silver City Rodeo is supporting the release of its new effort with multiple acoustic and full-band performances that are currently scheduled throughout the summer and fall.
