rhoades 9-10:30pm
Formed in May 2013, the music of RHOADES explores the blurred lines dividing emotional extremes, finding the danceable groove in the most heated argument, and revealing the sad wisdom that comes with heartbreak, keeping alive the visceral excitement and musicality of classic soul and R&B. A RHOADES show is intimate, raw and above-all an earnest and emotionally-charged concert experience.
