What to Expect
Over the past two and a half years, Red Rock has performed everywhere from small pubs to country clubs around Worcester county, performing a mix of classic rock, singer/songwriter, Celtic and folk covers, adjusted to the event or venue, and have established a loyal following in the process. Along the way, our audiences have heard everything from Lucinda Williams to The Clash, from Van Morrison to Hole, and almost everything in between. If we don't play the song you request, we probably play something else by that artist.
