J Roddy Walston and the Business tickets

J Roddy Walston and the Business tickets - J Roddy Walston and the Business Tour

J. Roddy Walston and the Business Schedule

The Washington Post said it best when they described the music of J. Roddy Walston and the Business as, "Equal parts ragtime, southern trash rock and McCartney-esque classic rock, with some gospel and barbershop thrown in. Think a really twisted version of The Band circa 1969, and you'd be pretty close."

This Southerner originally from the hollers of Tennessee deliver an unparalleled live performance that will have you out of your seat. You can check them out at venues like the Oceanside Pier Amphitheatre in Oceanside, California; Fine Line Music Cafe in Minneapolis, Minnesota; Metro in Chicago, Illinois; Newport Music Hall in Columbus, Ohio; Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Maryland Heights, Missouri; Carroll Park in Baltimore, Maryland; Georgia Theatre in Athens, Georgia; Zilker Park in Austin, Texas; Bottleneck in Lawrence, Kansas; Stubbs BarBQ in Austin, Texas; Troubadour in West Hollywood, California; The Independent in San Francisco, California; Doug Fir Lounge in Portland, Oregon; The Crocodile in Seattle, Washington; Bluebird Theater in Denver, Colorado; Trees in Dallas, Texas; Terminal West in Atlanta, Georgia; Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and Lamberts in Austin, Texas.

J. Roddy Walston and the Business Background

Nurtured on a steady diet of what he bills as the "music of God," J. Roddy Walston grew up in Cleveland, Tennessee. Walston went on to establish J. Roddy Walston and the Business in 2002 and issued their first EP, Here Comes Trouble, that same year. Two years later, Walston and the Business left the shadows of the Smokey Mountains in the rearview mirror and headed for Baltimore. At the time, his future wife pursued her musical education at the Peabody Conservatory of Music. Throughout the 2000s, the band dedicated their efforts to working on their debut full-length album, Hail Mega Boys, which arrived in 2007, and to focusing on building their credibility as an outstanding act to catch live. They achieved just that and many loyal fans compared them to "AC/DC fronted by Jerry Lee Lewis." It didn't take long for them to begin sharing stages with acts like Lucero, The Black Keys, Shovels & Rope and the Lumineers. They have additionally played high-profile festivals like Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, with audiences loving every minute of their blissful, yet feverish performances.

While the live concert maintains its place as a crucial component of the entire J. Roddy Walston and the Business experience, Walston recognizes the importance of penning songs away from the tour bus. He said, "I think it's dangerous to write songs when you're on the road, since you're so out of touch with the normal, natural human condition." Prior to crafting tunes for their latest album, Essential Tremors, Walston paused until he was roosted at his Richmond, Virginia, home. Walston said, "I've sort of drifted back down South again. I don't think our band or our music is particularly Southern, but our sense of storytelling and use of language is very much aligned with a more Southern way of life."

But, J. Roddy Walston never stays at home for very long. You can find him this year, criss-crossing the country. Make sure you check out J. Roddy Walston and the Business when they head to your neck of the woods!

As the band describes the experience, "Melting all manner of stereotypes into an as-yet-unnamed breed of New American, each performance finds hipsters hugging Teamsters and sweating till it hurts, and art-school cynics and metalheads screaming out every lyric in some gorgeously desperate attempt to connect. There seems to be a competition between the band and the crowd as to who will give more each night." Why would you want to pass up the opportunity to witness a show brimming with madness and happiness at the same time? J. Roddy Walstona and the Business most certainly fall into the category of bands that you need to see live in order to truly appreciate their music and their companion stage presence that brings the experience full circle.
