Rose & The Bros are a powerhouse ensemble rooted in the older Zydeco tradition,  inspired by the Frank family, with the addition of crooning vocal harmonies and country music influence. The band has a distinctive rhythmic presence which is based in the Louisiana sound, with additional Reggae and melodic drum tones. The band's goal has been to stay true to their own musical voices, while having a strong obligation to the Zydeco dancer in their tempos and musical feel.

With a shared dream to simply have a blast while making people dance without stopping, Rosie Newton, Paul Martin, and Steve Selin set out to collect tunes and the rare ingredients of a no holds barred Zydeco and Cajun dance party.  Once the trio had found their undeniable rhythm section in drummer Greg Evans, bassist Angelo Peters, and rub board/triangle player Sally Freund, Rose & The Bros became a six piece instant party and the band was complete.   Now, Rose & The Bros continue forward, gathering strength and a warm following with infectious joy, a love for community, and a rollicking good time.
