Storming our ears today, like Theodore Roosevelt's troops stormed San Juan Hill in 1898, is Nashville, Tennessee's strongest outfit of musical crusaders to hit the Music City center stage in decades, a powerhouse group of talented local musicians known as Teddy and The Rough Riders. Drawing from a wide range of influences that include elements of psychedelic pop, Dixieland rock, and classic country crooning, Teddy and The Rough Riders have developed an original sound that stands on it own in a city cluttered with cookie cutter Americana groups at every corner.
Driven by drummer Nick Swafford's steady back beat, charged with bassist/vocalist Ryan Jennings's dynamic fret work, and dominated with the six string interplay between guitarist/vocalist Jack Quiggins's clean telecaster tone and Luke Schneider's effect laden pedal steel guitar, Teddy and The Rough Riders are a true live act that always delivers a great vibe.
