The Roddies / Bio

Fronted by the Twins, Fran and Rich Rodowicz, rocking Philadelphia based thunderhouse, The Roddies, presents vocal raunch and musical punch in all the right places.

Inventive yet conventional, this heavy outfit has left it's musical tire tracks on such stages as World Cafe Live, The Bitter End, Northstar Bar as well as the rustically conceived "Roddies Lakefest" their lakeside summer abode which brings bands from the entire community out for a Pine Barren concert in homage to all things natural-peace, love and rodnistics.

With younger brother Keith, on the bass, and cousin Ray Orysiek, on the skins, the classic rock tonality pitches upward into a post-Gen X vibe, converted for popular into a listener's foot stompin stir, without fragmenting the currency of sheer rock-n-roll hijinx.

They released their second album "Monsters & Bugs," a rock-pounding album that expands their hardliner mastery in featuring the crooning of Jacque Varsalona and Lindsey McKay. Their father Rich arranged and played trombones with Brett Kull (who recorded the album at MM3 studios) played madolin and lap steel. The disc is the shit."

Donning a busy multi-media prestige, The Roddies have also appeared on local NBC television, been featured in The City Paper and Philadelphia Weekly, WMMR, WXPN and have graced countless podcasts and local radio stations with interviews and live performances.
