Small Change Romeos - "Dandelion"

After a 5 year hiatus the members of long time San Francisco Rock Band Small Change Romeos are gearing up to release their 4th studio album and follow it up with a number of Northern California shows this summer.
The album, entitled ‘Mystery Sings’ is a solid collection of material from sessions that span several years in the studio. It is arguably their most provocative and strongest record to date with songs that cover a broad range of styles from Roots Rock to Blues to Alternative.
Official CD Release Show to take place Fri. 6/24 at Neck of the Woods 406 Clement St. San Francisco, CA
The Small Change Romeos is a prolific and exciting musical outfit led by Singer Songwriters Chris James and Mike Ruy. A rhythm section tour du force backs them with Matt Berg on drums, and AJ Leighton on bass. Keyboardist, and upcoming artist in own right John Patterson, fills out the band’s eclectic sound.

The Romeos have been developing their craft for several years, both on stage and in the studio, creating a musical synergy between them that is undeniable. Being songwriters first, rock n’ rollers second, their multi-layered, contagious songs rally up audiences to follow them through emotionally stirred performances.

"SCR is a real rock band. They bring to mind an edgy, dynamic and classic sound that is missing in so much of today’s music. Great songwriting and awesome onstage performance and energy...” Working with them both on the stage and in the studio has always been a pleasure and an incredible experience..." -Phil Bennett, Starship


MORE INFO: In 2007 through 2009 their album “Fool’s Gold” attracted the attention of the majors and the band was able to secure a music placement contract with Gotham Records out of NYC. The record featured a host of talented musical guests including: Dave Rude (Tesla), J Bowman of (Spearhead) and Phil Bennett (Starship). Additionally, the Small Change Romeos have had plays on many West Coast radio stations including 107.7 The Bone, 91.1 KMUD, 90.1 Pirate Cat FM, and KGO 810 AM. They have also had music featured in commercials seen on various TV stations including CNN, and they have been broadcast on XM SIRIUS satellite radio as well as various other Internet stations. They have also been a featured act on the ongoing Comcast television show SF Sound. In 2005, the track “Not Like This” was chosen to be part of the SAUZA "LIVE ALL SUMMER" compilation CD that distributed 40,000 copies nationwide. The Romeo’s video and song “01.20.09” can been seen on a number of "call for change" websites including BushsLastDay.com and was one of Bruce Springsteen's personal picks for a playlist on E STREET SIRIUS RADIO. Together they have played hundreds of live shows and have done a number of corporate events for companies including KOHLER, and NET SUITE.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
