Here's what the media is saying about them ... "The Show Ponies are a West Coast-based bluegrass/old-timey band who, at their best, embody all the raw energy and enthusiasm inherent in the genre, fortified with on-target lyrics and a refreshingly modern sensibility." David Maine, Pop Matters
"We're Not Lost was financed through patronage by fans, underscoring the commitment of the Show Ponies' audience to their success. The recording communicates the sense that the group must have quite an entertaining stage presence. It also conveys the impression that this is an approach to rooted music more suited to a demographic younger than the one I happen to occupy. That's not a criticism, of course. These guys are very good at what they do, and if you like a well-crafted, energetic, pop-inflected sound far better than anything you'll get on country radio, this is for you." Jerome Clark, Rambles.net
"Lest I digress, I will rein in my descriptions to simply conclude: this is a very, very good album….one well-worth checking out if you haven’t already heard or seen The Show Ponies." Jackie Morris, FolkWorks.com
"They pull together pieces of old time Appalachian folk with strong harmonies and rhythms to create a bouncy, fervent energy that's starting to make waves." Kim Ruehl, FolkAlley
"Most of the songs are a little slower, a little more melancholy, but there's just as much class and confidence as We're Not Lost's lead single. It's a coming of age album for us young'ns in our 20s. But before you roll your eyes and back away, know that the Show Ponies embrace the uncertainty of this stage in life and take things as they come. It's a mature outlook on things -- clearly they've come through the other side. As they recount the sad and happy times, though, you'll be with them every step of the way." Rachel C, No Depression
"Every song here belongs, placed carefully within a considered arc. As the album progresses, the upbeat, spunky bluegrass gradually softens to reveal raw and gentle tracks that would have been at home on the soundtrack for “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?”,Sometimes the songs evoke adventure—at other times a slow, difficult trek—but the lyrics always manage to preserve a sense of hopefulness and forward motion." Phillip and Janelle Ajian, Patheos

If you really love music, and find yourself sometimes wishing you had some friends who loved it even half as much as you, then you have come to the right place. The Rear Window audience is comprised, primarily, of music lovers who really enjoy being able to hear the performers play their music without the usual noise that keeps you from being able to hear much of the songs. We present a wide variety of music styles or genres, and artists who write and perform their own music.
Most of the music is considered "Americana" which really means, country, alternate rock, rockabilly, rhythm & blues, bluegrass, jazz, funk, folk, and just about anything else you can imagine. Because music has largely to do with personal taste, you will like some of our shows better than others, but we guarantee that you will always be glad you came.
You can probably imagine the vast number of singer-songwriters and performers who pitch their music to record companies each and every day. Yet, a record company typically has only one or two people who choose the artists they will push to stardom. So, as you can see, it is very likely that record companies pass up some of the best music you will Never Hear. That means some of the Best Music never hits the radio or television, because it doesn't get the very costly promotions that record companies invest in "Their Choices."
At the Rear Window Listening Room, you will hear some of the best music you have ever heard, performed by artists who are extremely talented and have devoted their lives to creating and playing music. We also have some artists who are either on the verge of making it big or have already started down that road and still take time to come by the Rear Window. Susan Gibson has written a single that sold 14 million copies (that's a lot), and Sean Ashby, coming in April, has four multi-platinum records to his credit. Richard Smith, coming June 9th, is hailed as the one of the World's Greatest finger-picking guitarists, ever; and Actor & singer-songwriter Ronny Cox (the guitar player at the beginning of the movie "Deliverance") comes to the Rear Window regularly. So, plan to come to the Rear Window Listening Room and join us for some fabulous music and overall excellent entertainment.
