    New England's newest country music. With a new-country style, we play it all. From Patsy Cline to Jason Aldean, there is a little bit of something for everyone! Biography John (guitar/mandolin/vocals) John has played in many bands throughout his musical career, including R&B, reggae, bluegrass, and straight ahead rock and roll acts. After discovering country music in the early 90's, he joined Goldrush, a popular band specializing in modern country. Following that band, he launched True West, an award winning group with an emphasis on covering female artists and known for their superb singing. True West played more than 400 shows over a six year stretch. And now he's happy to be with Rodeo and Juliet and is looking forward to another successful musical venture. Tom (guitar/vocals) Tom Powers is a singer/songwriter who plays rhythm/lead, electric/synth and acoustic guitar. Tom has been playing, performing, and recording music since he was 10 years old. In high school, Tom and some friends started a band called Isaac Kidder, playing at parties and high school dances and was in and out of several bands through the 80's and 90's. In 2000, he broke out on his own as a solo/acoustic act, playing pubs and coffee houses in and around Boston. In 2008 formed the band Mumblefish, a rock cover band playing over 300 shows in the metro west area. Tom has now stepped into the world of country music, with his new band and is excited to be playing music by some of his favorite artist. “This is a great band with talented musicians' and amazing vocals. Everyone in the band sings", Tom say's “that opens up the ability to cover almost any artist on the country music scene". Jim (bass guitar/vocals) Jim has played every song ever recorded (only joking). Jim has been playing bass in local rock, original rock, classic rock and country bands since 1969. Some might remember his bands: 'Earth,' 'The Other's,' 'Paul Edward and Caviar,' 'Sonny and the Shades,' 'Cabby Joe,' and 'True West,' along with many "fill in" bands. When not playing with R.a.J., he still plays with the oldies band 'Back In Time' (formerly 'Profile'). Chris (drums/vocals) Originally from Eastern Canada, Chris Newhook has been playing since he had to stretch just to see the top of the drum. Starting his formal musical training at the age of eleven, Chris has played all styles of music from Jazz to Metal, Middle Eastern to Latin. After an endless stream of roadwork, some studio work, he finely settled down to a "day gig". About 5 years ago, he caught the New Country bug, traded in his leather jacket for a frilly shirt and a big ole belt buckle and hasn't looked back since. Tara (lead vocals) Singing publicly since the age of eight, Tara has sang at a variety of venues over the years; however, has and will always be country. Some of her beginning gigs were singing the National Anthem at local sporting events and singing for Veteran's Day and Memorial Day Ceremonies for the City of Gardner. Through the years she has won several awards for her vocals, sang with a few different local bands and has traveled to Nashville to sing a number of times. Recently she has opened up for Darius Rucker, Gary Allen, and opened up a National Motocross Race. Known mostly as "Tara Joy" for her solo performances, she is excited to be in with such a talented group of musicians and can't wait to show the world what Rodeo & Juliet is all about! http://rodeojulietband.com/musicandvideo.cfm
