Roadhouse Redeemed was formed in December of 2013 by Brad Frost and Jason Marquez. Both Brad and Jason had played together at their church on the worship teams as well as another band project. When they decided to start a blues/blues rock project, the only name that came to mind for a bass player, was Jeremiah Kidd. Brad, Jason and Jeremiah had been playing together for a few years both in the church and in other outside bands. Then came the question: Who's going to play lead guitar? A Craigslist ad yielded very few responses which amounted to two auditions. Out of those auditions, Roadhouse Redeemed was able to land Scottie Walton. Scottie's rough, soulful voice and ripping guitar leads were the perfect fit for the band. Roadhouse Redeemed got off to a slow start and struggled to book gigs because of being described as a blues band. But after watching their highly entertaining show, every venue they play cannot wait to book them again and again.
The band competed in the River City Blues Competition in Marietta, Ohio in February 2016. The guys made the cut to the top 10 acts who competed in front of a live audience and panel of judges at the Historic Lafayette Hotel. Of the top 10 acts were 6 bands and 4 solo/duo acts. It was clear early on that these 10 acts were the cream of the crop and competition was stiff! At the end of the day, Roadhouse Redeemed finished as the top band. 1st and 2nd place overall went to solo/duo acts and the band finished 3rd place overall. Since Roadhouse Redeemed was the top band, they earned a spot at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN in January 2017 where they will compete against top blues bands from around the world!
