The Roux is an alternative/roots style band. We blend eclectic elements which could be suitable for any type of person out there. If need be, we can be family friendly, but we can also (and have plenty of times) rock a pub/restaurant. We have professional equipment and can do our own sound. We are a three (bass, two guitars w/vocals) or four person band (percussion) depending on venue needs. We have many original songs and covers.
Price Range: $0-$500
Gig Length: 30 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
We are a low-maintenance band for the most part. We can rock the house or set the mood for dinner. We will work with you! We have our own equipment and are accomodating. (We have played in store window displays before (with four people) and made it look good lol)
We have fun (but unique) covers and a vast array of originals.
With the combination of four eclectic musical minds, The Roux began forming their unique original sound in early 2013. The Roux consists of (bassist) Allison Zettlemoyer, (lead guitarist) Mike Swiger, (percussionist) Tyrone Bradley, (vocalist/rhythm guitarist) Bill McConney, all residing in Northeastern Pa. Painting with a broad musical palette The Roux blend shades of folk, r&b, funk, roots, and even hip-hop. In the past year they have been busy performing and gaining exposure around the tri-state area through; festivals, in-store appearances, radio play rotation, and at various bars.
