Brent Amaker and the Rodeo have spent the last three years touring the US
and Europe in support of their 2006 self titled release and 2008's "Howdy
Do!"(Gravewax Records). Their forthcoming album tentatively titled "Please
Stand By" will be released early 2010 and will be supported by a national tour
with stops in small towns and major cities alike including Chicago, IL, Austin,
TX, Durango, CO, Flagstaff, AZ, Deadwood, SD, Oklahoma City, OK, Los
Angeles & San Francisco, CA, and of course their hometown of Seattle, WA.

"We can't wait for our fans to hear the songs from the new album. We've
been working on it for a year now and we're excited to play the new stuff
live. Damn this is gonna be fun!" –the Rodeo

The Rodeo is gaining a reputation for their raucous, whiskey-infused shows
where a growing number of fans (called the B.A.R Brigade) participate
by emulating the Rodeo's distinct style. Dressed in black from head-to-toe,
the Rodeo offers up original country music classics a la Johnny Cash but
delivered in the spirit of Devo, David Bowie and many others who still
believe the live show should be, well a show. Their live sets often feature
Bunny Monroe-a dancing girl from a local burlesque troupe and a
phenomenon only known as the “Whiskey Baptism” which has to be
experienced to be believed.

"We've been itching to get back out on the road. There's nothing
like seeing the country while traveling with the Rodeo. Crazy
shit happens everywhere we go. So much so we're even having
a comic book done to chronicle our (mis)adventures. "
-Brent Amaker

This past year B.A.R. gained national exposure on the Showtime series
"Californication" and have made appearances at music festivals around the
world including Popkomm Festival in Berlin and CMJ in New York City.
You can also find them performing in the indie "slasher" feature film "Punch"
just released on DVD. Punch director Jay Cynik is currently working with the
band to develop an adult graphic comic to be released 2010 in conjunction
with the new record.
