Well guys, we have finished a string of shows over the summer and into the fall. Man, do ya’ll know how to show a girl a damn good time! Well, a few girls and a few guys. A band. Ya’ll know how to show a mixed-gender band a good time!
We need to get back to writing and recording some new music, but wanted to make sure to take a moment and give you all the props you deserve! Here’s a hand full of shots from a few of the shows. Thanks so much!!!
ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR (MULTI-GENRE) AT THE 2019 JOSIE MUSIC AWARDS!
A-MAZ-ING!!! For the second year in a row, Rio and the Rockabilly Revival took top honors for Entertainer of the Year! It’s one thing to be honored and recognized, but in a year when the number of submissions nearly doubled from 2018, being recognized for our performance is an outrageously awesome honor!!! Thanks Josie Awards!!
The Josie Awards sent us our award, and we mounted it on the wall next to our Detroit Music Awards and the 2018 Josie Music Award … and during our very next rehearsal, we were apparently rocking too hard and it fell off its shelf and shattered on the floor. We decided if it broke because we were rocking so hard, it must have been a good sign and we should leave it broken. We have not figured out how to display it in two pieces though.
