Longtime friends D. Davis, Pat Melvin, and Matt Schrag from Waterbury VT always wanted to write music together; this spawned After The Rodeo.  Although all three have other projects they are involved with, they consider this eclectic collision of jazz, traditional blues, americana, and cowboy folk their pet project. They are able to play music they've written that does not quite fit in with the work of their other groups. With D on guitar, Matt on guitar and mandolin, and Pat on the standup bass, they are currently working on recording an album that they hope to finish "sometime."

You can hear After The Rodeo on their website, on facebook at, or live at the Stowe Mountain Lodge on July 8.
