The CFCU Summer Concert Series Presents Rose & the Bros w/ Janet Batch
August 8, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
One part Stevie Nicks, two parts Johnny Cash, Janet Batch sings, unabashed, of death, romance, and the wondering of what went wrong. Her songs are an illustration of the pendulum that swings between joy and heartache.
Her first album, “A Good Woman is Hard to Find” has garnered her praise from country/folk fans and connoisseurs alike. Janet’s musical style has been referred to as “country with an art degree” and she has been endeared as “the voice of the hills”.
Rose & The Bros are a powerhouse ensemble specializing in irresistible Zydeco and Cajun dance grooves resonating with sweet vocal harmonies and crooning country roots.
With a shared dream to simply have a blast while making people dance without stopping, Rosie Newton, Paul Martin, and Steve Selin set out to collect tunes and the rare ingredients of a no hold barred Zydeco and Cajun dance party. Once the trio had found their undeniable rhythm section in drummer Greg Evans, bassist Angelo Peters, and rubboard/triangle player Sally Freund, Rose & The Bros became a six-piece instant party and the band was complete. Now, Rose & The Bros inspire a warm following with infectious joy, a love for community, and a rollicking good time.
