Who Is Rogue 2?
Rogue 2 is an Erie, Colorado-based acoustic band known for adding banjo and mandolin in places they just shouldn’t go. From the more traditional end of the spectrum (think Johnny Cash, Billy Idol, and Foo Fighters) to current tunes (think Mumford & Sons, Lumineers, and Lady Gaga), to some late night rabble-rousing (think Commodores, Bon Jovi, and Nine Inch Nails). Their energetic shows have been riling folks up all over the North Denver Metro. R2 is shameless. Want to hear that old Journey song? Absolutely, as long as they can add banjo!
It started as an excuse for Travis and Eric to get together, open a bottle of wine or a couple of beers and let the stresses of the day dissipate. Invariably, guitars would come out, and songs would be sung. We met Craig, with his multi-instrumental virtuosity and expanded our horizons. Over a hundred eighty tunes later, here we are!
