The Rose Island Band brings together a devious mix of talents. Mya Rose writes songs about islands and children and love and sings them with a strong alto voice. Colin Ward's songs sound like folk-rock with a rootsy twist and tell complete stories in 4 minutes or less. Add the keyboard talents of Doug Willcox and the rhythm section of Bill Blough's drums and Mark Mussett's reggae influenced bass, and you have a powerful mix of rocking, rootsy songs. Throw in some familiar covers from favorite artists like the Grateful Dead, the Old Crow Medicine Show, Siblime and others, and a fun night of music is guaranteed.
