The Rathburns rocked Indie Week
For those who haven’t had the pleasure of witnessing The Rathburns, they are a blues rock band influenced by Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix with casual attire to match their sound. The band is lead by the raspy yet powerful voice of Frances Rose. Rose is most definitely an entertaining and energetic front woman especially after a drink or five.
Rose has a knack for ending up on the floor at least once during her shows, inebriated or not. This makes for quite the conversation piece when discussing the band with others. Just like the musicians of yesteryear who were able to perform quite well after several shots and a pint or two, The Rathburns channel this ability as well, although they haven’t quite mastered it yet, It doesn’t hinder their live shows too much.
So if you like blues and rock then you should definitely check them out. Their next show is Nov. 22 at The Central.
