Awesome Fan Letter

While sitting down to dinner on Saturday night in Deming, just after our show there, we received this fan letter via email. ----------------------- Hi guys.

We had a great time at your Red Lake Ranch concert in Hereford, Arizona last night. Four pleasant guys hit the stage, a bunch of pallets on a dirt floor in a barn. No matter, because they started the set, and we were amazed. The best ear candy in the world, and I'm not talking cheap jelly beans but the best sweet, savory, dark chocolate, hit the air and a professional and passionate performance started. The second set was equal to or better than the first. You had us from the first note, and your individual riffs were icing on the cake. I will tell our friends that no matter what kind of music they prefer, that they should take any opportunity, live or otherwise to hear your performances. We will see you in February at the Cowboy Poets Gathering in February in Sierra Vista, AZ.

Thanks again, Pat and Sandy O'Brien Sierra Vista, AZ -------------------------

Thanks Pat and Sandy! We truly appreciate you taking the time to send this to us!

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Another STELLAR Review!

A Fork In The Road received another STELLAR review from Matthew Mayo in the Big Sky Journal’s Summer 2013 Issue! Thanks Mr. May and thanks Big Sky Journal!

"A Fork in the Road (Redwood Ranch Records) by Tumbleweed Rob & The Southwest Junction. You may recall Tumbleweed Rob from his band The Tumbling Tumbleweeds, but this founding member has too much musical juju for one band! And fans of good old American music are the lucky recipients of his overflow of talent. Cowboy, country, Western, rootsy, Americana and more, Rob’s newest offering features his full, smooth voice and wholesome, well-wrought lyrics, and it makes fine use of harmonies, too. He’s accompanied this time out by a handful of dynamic and accomplished musicians who make this album swing, sway, stroll and snap."

- Matthew Mayo, Music Critic
