Rio Peligroso is a live rock-country-honky tonk jukebox, blending '70s SoCal country rock (Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers), classic rock (Stones, Neil Young), traditional country (Willie, Merle), indie/alt. rock (R.E.M., Camper Van Beethoven), alt.country (Son Volt, Wilco), oldies (Buddy Holly, Johnny Burnett Trio) and more. A Roadhouse Band for Discriminating Dirtbags, Rio Peligroso mix deep cuts with left-of-center favorites.
"Anyone who can mix REM, The Band, the Rolling Stones, and Camper Van Beethoven is awesome in our book as well. Can't wait to have them back!" -- Calvin's Sportsbar
"Rio Peligroso's music transports the listener back to the days of cosmic cowboys, packed audiences at North Hollywood's Palomino nightclub, lead singers wearing glittering custom made Nudie jackets, and spiritual retreats out to Joshua Tree. The country rock of the '70s was about so much more than the Eagles' overexposed catalogue. How fortunate there's a band called Rio Peligroso to remind us." ---Steve Thorn, San Diego Troubadour
