Re: “Best Richmond Rock Band

Welcome to Richmond, where creativity is not taken for its own value but used as as fodder for petty, narrow-minded people to air their frustrations. Richmond has lots of great bands out there. Truth is, though, that Richmonders have long had trouble parting with their funds in order to support the strong variety of local music/musicians that this area has had to offer. They typically are more willing to go and pay to see bands that play music they know aka cover bands. There is no more American way than playing other people's songs for your own monetary benefit. That is capalism and that is the US of A!

That said, doing cover tunes and doing them well is a great way to familiarize yourself with the general public. The ability to perform quality original music is the true icing on the cake and what most musicians would love to be able to make a living doing. This isn't necessarily the town to hope for that in but you try to bloom where you are planted.

Rosie Soul and the Rock and Roll Cowboys are trying to do just that. They are obviously succeeding given the outcome of the vote. I am one of their most ardent fans but they are not the end all to local music. They are not everyone's cup of tea. But if you want to see a great show that is absolutely entertaining then you'd do yourself a favor to spend the money to see Rosie and the boys. You may scoff at their attire but that's part of the whole package. You can see musicians in street clothes anytime. Rosie's stage personality is magnetic and the musicians behind her can keep up with anyone you put them up against. Lots of people walk in skeptics and walk out Rosie fans. That's just how it works and Rosie really WORKS it!

Naysayers, do yourselves a favor and go see a show with an open mind and looking to have fun. You'll find it at a Rosie show and find it well worth the investment. Even if you don't leave as their biggest fan you should leave with an appreciation of their talent and hard work. They offer the total package. ROSIE SOUL and the ROCK and ROLL COWBOYS are truly a great rock and roll band and their supporters are proving it at every show!

By the way, if you are bothering to "like" or "dislike" these comments, don't. When you hit one they both add on to their tally. REALLY?! Why bother?
