With an enormous and loyal following in the southwestern U.S., Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers are sure to draw a crowd at Tucson’s iconic Rialto Theatre this weekend.
Roger Clyne’s 20-year career started with The Refreshments, a Tempe band that made it big in the 1990’s. Since then, Roger and his band have found success in rock songs about life in the border lands, drawing a regional audience that’s captivated by his unique style and flavor of music. A lot of folks like the flavor of his private label tequila, too.
Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers’ latest release, “The Independent,” raises a metaphorical glass to the road less traveled, according to the band’s website. This year also marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Roger’s debut album, “Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy,” the first album released when his band was known as The Refreshments. Clyne still performs the classic songs made popular by The Refreshments with his current band, giving fans a perfect cocktail of old and new.
The show takes place this Friday, October 28th at the Rialto Theatre in Tucson. It’s an all ages show and the tickets are $24-26 each. The doors open for standing room general admission at 8:30pm; the show begins at 9:00pm. Opening act: Enormodome.
