Floods cause Randy Rogers Band to postpone show

Thursday, August 25, 2016 – Floods in Louisiana caused the Randy Rogers Band to postpone a concert on Wednesday.

"Out of respect to the community and those affected by the recent floods, the Randy Rogers Band has decided to postpone their Wed., Aug. 31 show at The Varsity Theatre in Baton Rouge, LA. It will be rescheduled for Thurs., Nov. 3," the band said in a statement issued by their publicist.

"Our prayers are with your city while you begin to rebuild," Randy Rogers said via social media. "We love you and will see you soon, Baton Rouge."

The band also will make a contribution to a local flood relief organization and is encouraging their fans to do the same.

CD reviews for Randy Rogers Band

Nothing Shines Like Neon CD review - Nothing Shines Like Neon
Randy Rogers Band's latest album cover provides insight into the music contained within. The brightly lit neon sign is a familiar sight to those who frequent honky tonks and smoky barrooms. The Texas country band plays music that is designed specifically for these locations and crowds within. Almost every song on this album has alcohol as one of the main characters. Fresh on the heels of Rogers' excellent twang filled collaboration with Wade Bowen, he returns with his full band with a »»»
Trouble
With "Trouble" the Randy Rogers Band seems to be attempting to straddle the line between hard-edged Texas alternative country and slick Nashville mainstream. Rogers is at his best when he sticks to alt.-country, as with the rocker Fuzzy in which he vaguely recalls the alcohol influenced events from the previous evening ("Who the hell is Heather/And when were we together/Cause I've got every letter of her name on my chest"). Similarly the bluesy Shotgun »»»
Burning The Day CD review - Burning The Day
An improvement over their previous, self-titled album, the Randy Rogers Band sounds like the weary Texas country band they were always meant to be. Produced by Paul Worley, this is a fairly straightforward collection of songs that, while not quite reaching the heights his classic "RollerCoaster," reached back in the mid-2000's, show RRB at a more mature, thoughtful place in their esteemed career. Opener Interstate recalls some of the breezier, alt.-country stuff they're known for. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: LSD tour provides a lot of highs – This was not your grandkids' country, that's for sure. Even the name of the tour - the LSD Tour - was a throwback (albeit far before the principals were making music). But make no mistake about it. With the ever cool country traditionalist Dwight Yoakam, the country with some rock and blues and rabble rousing of Steve Earle thrown in and the... »»»
Concert Review: Alvin, Gilmore fortunately get together – Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore had known each other for decades, but it wasn't until last year that they toured together in a guitar pull setting. What started as a small Texas tour mushroomed into points east and west and eventually the release earlier this month of their blues-based disc, "Downey to Lubbock." And now we have the... »»»

Washburn, Fleck create "Echoes" Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn have powerhouse individual talents; each has followed an estimable career path to where they find themselves today: making complex, but spare, records, writing music together and touring with their son Juno.

Bigger CD review - Bigger
Sugarland is back with "Bigger," its first studio album in nearly a decade. And its arrival says more about branding, than anything else. Although his voice is heard often enough on this album to make his presence felt, it's still difficult to get away from seeing Kristian Bush in the Oates to Hall or Ridgeley to Michael role in this duo.  »»»

Luke Combs has gotten a lot of life out of his album "This One's for You," which includes his breakthrough hit "Hurricane," as well as the popular single "When It Rains It Pours." This deluxe edition includes five new tracks, many of which are just as strong as the original 12.  »»»
Things Change CD review - Things Change
There may be no other CD title this year quite as apropos as this one. Things have indeed changed for American Aquarium since their previous studio album (2015's underrated "Wolves"). For one thing 80 per cent of the band quit, leaving only lead vocalist and songwriter BJ Barham. »»»
