Hailed as one of the most exciting live acts on the road today, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers are musical beacons of the Southwest fueled by witty and insightful lyrics, crunching guitar riffs, a dynamic rhythm section and tequila. RCPM are the only act to release seven consecutive studio albums to land on the top 10 of Billboard’s Internet Sales Chart, two at No. 1, all released on a 100% independent record label.

Dubbed the “Springsteen of the Southwest” by the Asbury Park Press, Roger Clyne and his guitar have toured around the world over his 20-year career, starting with The Refreshments.

The seminal Tempe, Arizona band made big waves in the ’90s both on college and alternative rock radio as well as MTV with the songs “Banditos” (with the infamous chorus, “Everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people”) and “Down Together” as well as writing the theme for TV’s “King of the Hill.”

More than 20 years later, Clyne and Refreshments drummer PH Naffah, along with bassist Nick Scropos and lead guitarist Jim Dalton keep the songs of The Refreshments alive, while adding to their own ever growing musical legacy. RCPM’s most recent album,
"Native Heart," was released on June 30, 2017.

A testament to their growing and extremely loyal fan base is the band’s annual music festival in Rocky Point, Mexico, called Circus Mexicus. What began as a rooftop show thrown together with extension cords and wooden pallets more than 15 years ago has blossomed into a pilgrimage that draws thousands of fans to the once sleepy fishing village. In 2014, fans from 43 states and 7 countries represented at Circus Mexicus.

Clyne not only sings about life in the border-lands, he also produces his own private label top shelf tequila called Mexican Moonshine. From Gold medals in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition to Gold Ribbons fromTequila Aficionado’s Brands of Promise, accolades have been rolling in. And a bottle of Mexican Moonshine Tequila made a well received “guest appearance” on the Rachael Ray Show.

In 2016, Clyne’s career came full circle as Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers celebrated the 20th anniversary of The Refreshments cult classic debut album, “Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy,” with a residency at the Yucca Tap Room in their hometown of Tempe, followed by a nationwide tour.
