The Fish Creek Rodeo started out in 2011 on a quiet street in Hamilton NY. It was Lebanon Street. The events that transpired were directly inspired by the Barge Coffee House, and Tumbleweed Gumbo's open mic. The events would include, a series of peaceful bar takeovers and late night/early morning laundromat parking lot picking. Jeremy and Liz make up the distinctive violin driven, guitar twangin, heavy soulful singing that is the heartbeat of the Fish Creek Rodeo.

 

Its outlaw, its fun, its mildly reminiscient of POP and more..

 

A revolving door of wonderful CNY musicans are part of the Rodeo.
