Bio: seven steps ahead of your dream ...
playing under the band name Rowdy Raiders, Marcos, Kevin, & Patrick were the 2010 Cowtown Rocks D/FW metroplex battle of the bands champions !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“Last year’s trio of Petrilli’s kids put out the program’s first CD, a five-song instrumental collection in a classic-rock vein. Going by the name the Rowdy Raiders (referencing the school’s mascot), they sound much more like veteran arena-rockers than just high-school kids. From the opening notes of “In a Rowdy Way,” these guys establish that they can play with the big boys. Guitarist Marcos Martinez, who has since graduated, flies all over the neck of his guitar. The guy picked up a six-string only a few years ago, but he already plays with more skill and authority than most guitar-toting adults. Like the music itself, Petrilli is full of optimism. Fort Worth will turn into an open-enrollment district in 2011, and rock-inclined students from all over the city can audition to be part of the group, which has not only the instruction but the technology to kick out the jams. ”
