Rio Peligroso is a live rock-country-honky tonk jukebox, blending 70s SoCal country rock (Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers), classic rock (Stones, Neil Young), traditional country (Willie, Merle), indie/alt rock (R.E.M., Camper Van Beethoven), alt country (Son Volt, Wilco), oldies (Buddy Holly, Johnny Burnett Trio), and more. A Roadhouse Band for Discriminating Dirtbags, San Diego-based Rio Peligroso mix deep cuts with left-of-center favorites.
Opening act by singer-songwriter Francis Blume whose influences include Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Chuck Berry, Marty Robbins, The Beatles, and Arcade Fire. “Blume’s rich vocals and bluesy, rock and roll approach harken back to the sound styles from the late 50s to the late 60s, where an emphasis on unclouded storylines allow for open interpretation and emotional messages to be applicable” (Amadeus Magazine).
