“After placing first in the three previous rounds, NKU student Joe Schutzman’s band, Rio & The Ramblers, has made it to the final round of the 2012-13 Madison Theater Band Challenge. In a competition that started with 65 local bands, Rio & The Ramblers is one of seven bands that will be competing for the top prize of $2,500, three days of recording time at Moonlight Studios and an opening spot for a national act at Madison Theater. Winners from each round were determined by a 50/50 voting split between judges and fans, with two bands each from the Feb. 15 and Feb. 21 nights, and three bands from the Feb. 22 night of the semifinals round set to move forward to the finale, which takes place at Madison Theater in Covington, Ky. on March 23. Rio & The Ramblers’ success comes just months after the creation of the band which was formed this past December by lead guitarist Ryan Snyder, 20, and drummer Alex Miller, 18. The band soon asked Rio Van, 21.”
