Bio

Road Trip is currently celebrating thier 15 year anniversary!!!

Road Trip was formed in 1990 and has since played throughout the Midwest, including Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, and Michigan. This experience has helped Road Trip amass a fan-based mailing list of over 5500 people. Their mailing list ensures a good crowd at each of the band's approximately 135 shows a year. Besides playing clubs, Road Trip has played many major festivals and opened for many national acts including: Sheryl Crow, ZZ Top, REO Speedwagon, Ted Nugent, Molly Hatchet, Fleetwood Mac, Foreigner, Reel Big Fish, Caroline's Spine, Stir, Blue Oyster Cult, April Wine, Wierd Al Yankovic, Jesse James Dupree of Jackyl, and Collective Soul.


Road Trip has developed a huge regional following by mastering the two key elements of rock and roll:
diversity and energy.

Road Trip's musical diversity is made evident by their extensive song list. Their cover songs encompass music from the birth of rock and roll in the fifties right up to the best music of today. This diversity can also be heard in the band's original material found on their 2001 release Please Disturb, 1999's Cowboys and Maniacs, and their two previous releases (both out of print), as well as Amy's 2005 release Murry Tracks. The variety of material performed is greatly enhanced by having both a male and a female lead vocalist: Rich Plath and Amy Johnson.

Road Trip is also in a class by itself when it comes to the energy of each performance. Continuous touring has made these musicians more comfortable on stage than anywhere else, they have a great time when they're performing and that energy becomes infectious. Every member of Road Trip is a consummate professional and the integrity of the music is never compromised, when you watch Road Trip the fun and energy coming off stage are complimented by some of the Midwest's finest music being performed by some of the Midwest's finest musicians - there are no weak links in this band. In addition, the unexpected is always possible as the members all believe in letting their creative spontaneity show through. Their down-to-earth attitude is never phony, and the members love to mingle with the crowd during breaks meeting new people and making new fans and friends.

Road Trip: Playing music of the past with the energy of the present and writing songs for the future.
