You remember Roger Clyne, right? He was the leader of the Refreshments, whose 1996 song “Banditos” made the band a hot commodity for a couple of years – until they broke up in 1998.
Did you also know that before they broke up, the Refreshments recorded the theme song for Mike Judge’s animated series “King of the Hill”? It’s true.
After the Refreshments, Clyne formed a new band, the Peacemakers. And for over a decade, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers have produced nothing but uncompromised, unadulterated, 100% pure rock-n-roll. Sticking to their credo of art leading commerce, the Tempe-based quarter have released six consecutive studio albums that all debuted in the top 10 on Billboard’s Internet Sales chart (the first independent band to ever accomplish that feat) by mixing relentless guitar licks, four part harmonies, thought-provoking lyrics and tequila.
You can catch the band in Omaha love at the Waiting Room, 6212 Maple St., on Sunday, Nov. 10. Tickets are $15.
