    Yes, Brent Amaker and the Rodeo hail from the drizzle dreary encloves of the Pacific Northwest. But, given the partially Podunk country bumpkins these bronco buckaroos wrangle in, their huge hunky hearts are no doubt reserved for more Southwestern locals. Word is these boys are devoted to their cause, donning their "Devo meets Johnny Cash" getups at all times, both on and off the stage. Yee haw lil doggies. They also live their nomadic lives by a strict code of it a collection of "Howdy Do's" and "Howdy Don'ts", if you will. They include:

    Howdy Do's
    1. Protect Your Hat
    2. Eat Meat
    3. Know How to Use a Knife
    4. Fight with Honor
    5. Take Care of Your Boots

    Howdy Don'ts
    1. Don't Smile
    2. Don't Complain
    3. Don't Refuse a Drink
    4. Don't Embarrass a Lady
    5. Don't Make Me Come Over There

    Recently, the Rodeo shot the kind of video for "When Love Gets to a Man" that ought to make any man tremble if in the fact their lady takes an interest in these cowboys. Let them go to a show on their lonesome and the Rodeo may just sweep their unsuspecting sweethearts right off their feet...and leave said man tied up in the back of a trunk.

    The band is currently making the rounds of the west doubt wooing loose woman wherever they hole up. We've got all the details for you below.
