Roosevelt Road is a band of well experienced musicians bringing decades of experience and styles including great Bluegrass, Americana and Gospel music to the Northwest and beyond.
Jane McMahon's vocals are beautiful and pure. Jane has her own style of 5 string Banjo that pleases the listener.
Steve McMahon, our Bass guy, loves to explore his Bass and play 'just a few different runs now and then. Steve also adds great vocals.
MIke Janda has been involved in the NW music scene for many years. His guitar style complements Bluegrass and Americana styles and his hometown vocal is unique in its soothing yet pronounced tone.
Loren Postma, Dobro Guru, adds a unique and pleasant sound to the band. Loren also sings lead and harmony vocals.
Robbie (John) Bennett is one of the NW finest fiddle players. His fiddle playing is so pleasant and smooth its a joy to hear and he rounds out Roosevelt Road with true Bluegrass vocals as well.
