Biography

Philadelphia's Pawnshop Roses combine good old fashioned American jangle rock 'n' roll with the rollicking blues-rock of The Stones and The Black Keys. Throw in a touch of Motown and
bit of 70's riff rock and you're almost there. Front man Paul Keen's vocals recall the soulful influence of Otis Redding and young Steve Winwood while guitarists Justin Monteleone
and Kevin Bentley provide jaw-dropping switchblade licks that leave the audience wide-eyed and speechless. Sit this atop the solid rhythm wall of bassist Mike Walsh and the drumming of
Zil and you've got yourself one of the most exciting and dynamic live acts out on the road today.
The fun they have on stage is contagious; as evident by the crowd's reaction during any of their 150+ shows a year. On any given night a Pawnshop Roses show can consist of songs in the classic rock vein, singer /songwriter, blues to country. They capture the spirit and sound of rock and roll in such a way as to suggest catchy choruses, melodies and soulful songwriting might be in the band's blood.
