Band of the Month
www.abbeyrodeo.com
  In the category of "Easy Listening" bands, Abbey Rodeo is, without a doubt, best in the class.  Since these veteran musicians came together as Abbey Rodeo in 2003, they have been building a huge loyal following.  It's no wonder. The incredible blend of talent, the vast song selections, the impeccable harmonies, and the down-home atmosphere created at each show, can't help but to impress anyone attending.
   Abbey Rodeo is: Bob Yokum on fiddle/violin, guitar, mandolin, harmonica, and vocals, Chris Butcher on guitar and vocals, Verne McClelland on acoustic guitar and vocals , Debbie "Space" Daniels on keyboards and banjo, Bob Chiancone on drums and vocals, and Fred Grupe on bass and inspiration.  Together they cover hits from the 60's, classic country favorites, ballads, traditional bluegrass, and country rock.  Abbey Rodeo is also working on a CD containing 4 of the band's originals, one of which, "Foolish Fire" is receiving daily airplay on WKKY (104.7FM). Stay tuned for the big release party.   Check out their website for CD details and the latest concert schedule.  Abbey Rodeo is a class act the whole family can enjoy.  Always there to help out with benefits and community projects, we are blessed that they call Northeast Ohio home.  Thank you, Abbey Rodeo!
Abbey Rodeo has become a staple at the local fairs and festivals!
