"Best Richmond Cover Band"

What makes a good cover band? The formula is pretty simple: Play popular music that makes people dance. According to its website, Red Light Romeo is a “party-loving group of guys who bring you an always-evolving show full of your favorite rock and pop songs.” Its YouTube videos show some of the favorites that draw fans their way, including a metal cover of Adelle’s “Hello” and a kind of metallic take on Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So.” - Style Weekly

"Best Richmond Rock Band"

Red Light Romeo — which also won best cover band — is made up of Andrew Saunders, Dave Dixon, Bill Dirr, James Alley and Joe Parrett. “Our priority is always ensuring that the audience is having as much fun as we are,” singer Saunders says. “We will literally play anything as long as it’s a good time. And I mean anything: From Taylor Swift to Slipknot to Sir Mix-A-Lot and everything in-between!” The band is venturing into original material for the first time this spring. - Style Weekly

"Richmond's Favorite Way to Have a Good Time"

With a reputation of playing any song by any artist, nothing is off limits for this high-energy quintet. You'll never see the same show twice from these maniacs, but their setlist staples include rocked-up hits from Fall Out Boy, Bruno Mars, Johnny Cash, Taylor Swift, Coolio and everything in between.

Mix in a rap battle featuring 90's throwback jams, a spoonful of pun-tastic comedy and the occasional T-Rex sighting and you'll understand why a Red Light Romeo show is Richmond's favorite way to have a good time! - Virginia Pride

"Best Richmond Rock Band - 2015"

Voters love cover bands. Red Light Romeo, a hard rock cover band that knows no stylistic boundaries, has been drawing rabid fans to spots such as Sharky’s in Glen Allen and Outlaws in Petersburg. The band plays a diverse range of covers (see their second place win in that category) and surprisingly, has only been together a year, already scoring 2,600 Facebook fans. Lead singer Andrew Saunders says they're looking to make more inroads into the city at venues such as Broadberry; and he notes that they've played charity events as well for Harley Davidson. - Style Weekly


Still working on that hot first release.



Known equally for their high-energy stage show, enormous crowds of amazing fans and a diverse range of cover tunes across all decades and genres, Red Light Romeo is a party-loving group of guys that can entertain any audience.

Often compared to a living and breathing Punk Goes Pop album, Red Light Romeo commonly takes pop hits by major artists such as Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Pink, and crafts unique remakes that appeal to both fans of the original, and fans who prefer uptempo rock!.

With a motto of "We'll play anything by anybody!", fans are constantly surprised by the variety of popular hits that are performed during a 4-hour performance. The band is just as well known for their covers of Johnny Cash and Creedence Clearwater Revival as they are of Britney Spears, Coolio or Metallica.

Richmond publication Style Weekly twice named Red Light Romeo as the Best Rock Band in Richmond, VA and also awarded the band the title of Best Cover Band!

A crowd favorite since the summer of 2014, audiences have flocked to RLR concerts all over Richmond and helped Red Light Romeo sell out venue after venue!
