Feeling a bit camera shy


Cletus Baltimore is made up of three Brevard College graduates. They formed in the winter of 2004 while attending Brevard College, and have been going strong ever since. Cletus Baltimore began their career at the house of drummer, Shane Parreco. Eventually, students began to catch on and pack the house for practice, that’s when they knew they were on to something. Cletus Baltimore is known for its “lively music” that captures the readiness in any music lover of any kind. This explosive trio "can't be explained, only experienced." They explore multiple directions in rock and roll including jam-improvisation, high energy dance grooves, and jazz-swing feels, all while navigating through unique song structures. The song writing is done raw by Randy Hope, guitarist, and then taken into the practice room to put the Cletus touch on things. The songs are catchy in structure and the lyrics are on a level that people can relate to. Cletus Baltimore concerts are high-energy fun. Cletus Baltimore varies in genre, from rock & roll, to jazz, to bluegrass; they have many influences that come up when they perform. A typical concert is around 3 hours long and includes about 90% original music with covers from artist: The Grateful Dead, Van Morrison, The Band, Bob Dylan, The Talking Heads, Velvet Underground and more. Their persistence over the years has helped their evolution into true musicians creating music that explores the twists and turns, all while letting the listener appreciate the music and the shared experience with the band.
