It may come as a surprise to hear the foot-stomping strains of Appalachian bluegrass channeled through a rock band here in Los Angeles, but heartache, loss and regret have always been the cornerstones of great music and this city has its share. In a town better known for porn stars and face lifts, anything as authentic and heartfelt as Rose’s Pawn Shop, is a pleasant surprise.
Rose's Pawn Shop is a tornado of Americana, rock, Appalachian bluegrass, alt-country, folk, Celtic, punk and the kitchen sink. Since 2006 RPS has toured extensively, electrifying audiences with their high-energy stage show, punk-bluegrass-a-billy attitude and genre-blending, boot-stomping tunes.
With an arsenal of banjos, guitars, mandolin, fiddle, pedal steel, upright bass, and thundering drums, their sound is a wholesome mishmash of creek mud, rusty nails and your mom’s cooking’. It’s sincere, straight-forward and sexy as fuck, effortlessly combining such disparate musical styles as rock, country, bluegrass, and punk to create an incomprehensibly smooth and accessible sound for true believers and skeptics alike.
