"One of Red Deer's premier rock band's, Rock and Roll Emergency or R.A.R.E. is an excellent blend of alt-rock with facets of progressive and experimental that livens up any crowd they play in front of. A 3 piece burned from the ashes of another solid Red Deer band Unison, R.A.R.E. is led by the enigmatic Joe Matthews on guitar and vocals, the seasoned Mon Duncalf on bass and Johndel Simon wailing on the drums. The band was recently featured on 106.7 The Drive's Indy Spotlight and received excellent feedback from fans and critics alike. Do yourself a favor and check out Rock and Roll Emergency and not only will you not regret it, they'll leave you wanting more."

"The thing that bugs me the most about this band is that all their songs are my favorite"
