ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What is the recipe for a fun experience of music and dancing? Redbud’s tasty combination includes flavors from rock, reggae, blues, a touch of pop, ska, surf, psychedelic rock, punk, and a pinch of gospel. Stir it up with sexy, high energy fun, and great lyrics, heat it up, (and keep it cool) and dance!

Redbud plays original dance party music, influenced by a range of styles. They’re modern and retro. It’s obvious that the band members have a LOT of fun, and enjoy playing music, singing and writing songs together.

Redbud’s groove is highly danceable, the lyrics clever and thoughtful, and their stage presence is energetic and fun!

Redbud consists of Yoli Rose on rhythm guitar and vocals, Bob Dress on bass and vocals, Gary Pedroni on lead guitar, and Rich Fallus on drums, flute, harmonica and vocals.

Original homegrown music from Mendocino, California. Enjoy!

Experience the Open Road
Redbud is an authentic experience band, one that must be seen live to fully enjoy its energy, excitement and honest fun. It's a great dance band, plain and simple. But on those evenings when they're just not playing anywhere, the next best thing is to put on their new CD “Open Road.”

“Open Road” is also enjoyably danceable. But more than that, it's an antidote to all the bad news that's so hard to escape these days. This CD offers delectable music and upbeat lyrics that chase away all the fear the media has been trying to scare up.

Bummed about your life, your job, the economy? Give “SleepWakeDream” a listen or better yet, practice some positive visualization with melodic “Lottery.” Problems with your Significant Other? Try “Can't Give Up on You” or “Could Be Worse.” Just feeling general malaise and media-induced anxiety? How about “Ok/Alright” and “Have No Fear,” a suitable anthem for enduring the last regime.

Strong beats and solid guitar maintain a splendidly robust foundation for the entire CD, but the styles, moods and vocals layered on top of them are delightfully varied. A flute floats over the melody line of “SleepWakeDream” giving an appropriately dreamy feeling. “Open Road” offers up some wistful guitar work, and “Bonobo” is spiced up by some rich percussion.

There's rock and blues, some jazziness and a wee bit of funk, and it's all kick-off-your-shoes-and-dance happy. There's even a high school prom slow dance song, “Can't Give Up on You,” with the sweet and slow yearning sway that's ideal for holding your honey and your beer at the same time on the dance floor. Which – hey, things are getting better! – you're now old enough to do legally.
