Rose & The Bros is a rocking dance band from Ithaca, specializing in Zydeco and Cajun music from SW Louisiana as well as crooning country songs. Inspired by the downhome groove and vibe of the ALL NIGHT Zydeco and Cajun “Dances” at The Grassroots Festival in Trumansburg. The members, all accomplished and revered musicians in their own right, were drawn together by a shared love of the deep dance grooves Zydeco possesses. They’re possessed … be careful, you will be too!!!!

The band is led by Rosie Newton (accordion & fiddle), an internationally touring fiddler and singer with her Old Time duo, “Richie and Rosie”. Rosie has shared her fiddling gifts with many bands, having toured several times with Louisiana Zydeco legend Preston Frank, as well as the Canadian band “The Duhks” and Americana bands “Red Dog Run”, “Evil City Stringband”, and “Home Remedy”. Rosie was inspired to play the accordion during her tours with Preston and trips down to Louisiana. WATCH OUT!! Now that Rosie Newton has picked up the accordion the world as we know it will never be the same!!!!!

BIO INFO:

Rose & The Bros began as a collective dream. Rosie Newton, Steve Selin and Paul Martin wanted to have a band together playing rockin’ music people just couldn’t help but dance to! Starting in 2015 the trio began collecting songs and searching for the perfect rhythm section. Greg Evans, Angelo Peters and Sally Freund fit the bill and made the band complete. Together they specialize in Cajun and Zydeco music from South West Louisiana. They also include sweet vocal harmonies and a few crooning country classics in the mix. Their goal is to breathe life into the young dance music scene and have a great time doing it.

Rosie Newton is a internationally touring fiddle player and singer with her Old Time duo, Richie and Rosie, but enjoys playing accordion when she is home or in Louisiana. Steve Selin is a Cider Maker under his label, South Hill Cider by trade but has been a vital member of the Ithaca music scene, and avid music collector since he moved there over decade ago. Paul Martin is an organic fruit and vegetable farmer in Trumansburg, NY where he owns the well loved Sweet Land Farm. He toured with Indie Rock bands in the early 90’s and has fallen in love with Cajun and Zydeco music over the last few years. Angelo Peters is the leader of the innovative and wildly popular dance band, Big Mean Sound Machine. He grew up dancing to Zydeco music at the Grassroots Festival and it is part of his soul. Greg Evans is a professor at Ithaca College and is a sought after Jazz drummer in the Ithaca area, playing with the Mike Titlebaum Trio and the Tenzin Chopak band. Sally Freud is an accomplished rub board and triangle player who visits Louisiana frequently and knows the dances like the back of her hand. She plays locally in the Old Time band, Long John and the Tights, as well as the Zydeco Trail Riders.
