See Raygun Cowboys at The 2017 Beaumont Blues and Roots Festival on Saturday, June 17 at 4:00pm.
Raygun Cowboys are a psychobilly punk rock n roll band hailing from the very best dive bars and pool rooms of Edmonton. These 50’s influenced hooligans play insanely high-energy badass rockabilly with elements of punk and rock n roll that instantly gets people on the dance floor from the first to last song.
Formed in 2000, the boys started playing local shows and quickly became the band of choice to support touring acts in western Canada. In 2005 the Cowboys released their first recordings on the Zombie Night in Canada 2 compilation and released their debut Underworld Boogie in 2006. The band hit the road shortly after and toured coast to coast several times bringing their suped-up psycho juke joint jive to a legion of fans across the country. In 2007 they added a killer horn section to their traditional 3 piece rockabilly line up. Two full-length albums followed along with constant touring in every corning of the country including appearances at some of the best festivals in Canada like North Country Fair, Folk on the Rocks, Beaumont Blues Fest, Hotrod Hootenanny and the Salmon Arm Blues and Roots festival. In 2010-11 the Rayguns toured Europe in and backed up rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson at the Edmonton folk festival and began recording their third full length album in the fall.
Now the Raygun Cowboys are back with a brand new bag. Chocked full of terrifying tales of ghoulish debauchery, Heads Are Gonna Roll clocks in at 11 breakneck tracks that are sure to get all the boppers boppin and the hepcats swinging. Look for Raygun Cowboys on tour across Canada in March and April.
The BBRF only happens thanks to the generous help and loving support of many volunteers and sponsors.
