Artist Profile: J Roddy Walston & the Business

Revolution 91.7 is excited to welcome our headliner, J Roddy Walston & the Business, to this year’s 15th Annual Mayhem.

Based out of Richmond, Virginia, the band is currently on a tour across the United States that has them heading to Indianapolis, Nashville, Cleveland and of course Bowling Green.

Led by lead singer J Roddy Walston, the band is known for an energetic show that features Walston on the piano. “The Business” now consists of Billy Gordon (lead guitar/vocals), Logan Davis (bass/vocals) and Steve Colmus (drums).

On stage, you will see Walston playing a 1970s Yamaha piano that weighs nearly 300 pounds.

The band cites their influences as Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, Harry Nilsson, T. Rex and Leon Russell.

They released their brand new album, Destroyers Of The Soft Life, last year. The first song released on the album, The Wanting, topped out at #22 on the Alternative charts and has been a favorite of the Revolution staff.

You can see J Roddy Walston & the Business and an exciting lineup of local bands on Saturday at 6pm at the SoKY Marketplace. The event is FREE, but we will be collecting money for Warren County’s Rainhill Equine Facility.
