Roshambeaux Plays At World Of Beer Chattanooga July 9

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Roshambeaux will play at World of Beer Chattanooga, 412 Market St., on Wednesday July 9, at 9 p.m.  Admission is free. 

"We really didn't like each other," laughs Kyle Iconic, guitarist and singer with Roshambeaux, recalling meeting drummer, and now band mate, Jarret Chastain for the first time. "We met at a festival. We were playing with separate bands. It was so apparent we had absolutely nothing at all in common. And that was that. Or so we thought."

Fast forward a year. Fate threw Iconic and Chastain together again, this time as Chastain was a fill in drummer for a band Iconic was performing with. 

"After a handful of shows, we grew closer personally and musically and decided to put an original band together. And Roshambeaux was born." 

Review for Roshambeaux:

Roshambeaux have released their second CD, Illuminaughty. A radical departure from 2011’s Gaudy Monstrosity, a self admitted rushed first effort to satisfy a growing fan base with a record, Illuminaughty is a more thought out record, but still embraces Roshambeaux’ wild child musical spirit.

Roshambeaux is a duo that sounds like a full rock band. Audiences are shocked to find only two people on stage. Sound techs marvel at the complexity of the technology the duo possesses and the sheer wall of sonic sound they achieve. It’s ambitious, big, rowdy rock music- part rap, part rave, with nods to Soul Brothers Six & Muse- but with an identity wholly its own. The band believes audience interaction is essential to an unforgettable live show and make it their mission to engage and entertain on an elevated level. Illuminaughty captures a duo that expands it’s own musical universe.
