"The folks from the Stars and Stripes Concert and Festival committee asked me to play at the beginning of the festival. And, they have asked me to join the entertainers Sunday evening on the big stage in Harding Stadium to again play the national anthem. It is an honor and I am excited to be part of this event," stated Angelica.

Angelica has just returned from the Country Music Association event in Nashville where she was able to meet other entertainers and singwriters as well as promote her self-penned "Girls Just Want to Drink Beer."

"My song is now No. 50 on the Nashville charts and I am very excited about that. My agent has told me I am reaching out to people in my age group, so I have an age 40-plus fan base. I wanted to write songs for other singers. I never wanted to perform. I am more of a songwriter. But he urged me to sing my songs and other songs and it has been a lot of fun," Angelica related.

Angelica will be performing from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the beer corral in the Hollywood City Center Kroger store parking lot.

"I'll be playing my hit, 'Girls Just Want to Drink Beer,' a Hank Williams Sr. medley, some Patsy Cline and, of course, a few Dean Martin songs and several party songs to get everyone in the mood for the concert Sunday night," said Angelica.

"I had the chance to meet with Phil Vassar while I was in Nashville, and he is quite excited about coming to Steubenville. He knows this is Dean Martin's hometown and he is looking forward to playing in Harding Stadium," said Angelica.

"I like coming home to play in Steubenville. It gives my friends a chance to see me in a concert-type setting. And, it is always good to come home. I am very fortunate to be living my dream. For this little girl from Smithfield, this is all very large," declared Angelica.

According to Bob Chapman of Choice Brands of Ohio, the beer corral will be open from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. and will be serving a variety of refreshments including Mike's Summer Shanty, Mike's Classic Margauerita and Mike's Lemonade.

"We will also have Busch beer, Bud and Bud Lite beer, Michelob Ultra as well as Yuengling and Yuengling Light," said Chapman.

"We are honored and pleased to be part of the third-annual Stars and Stripes Concert and Festival. We have been part of this community for a very long time and are excited to be a partner in the event," said Chapman.

The free Family Fun Zone will open from noon to 5 p.m. in the Harding practice field area.

In the evening, the focus of the event turns to Harding Stadium. The Joseph Sisters of Wheeling will take the stage at 5:30 p.m. They will be followed by the Todd Jones Band at 6:45 p.m. and headliner Phil Vassar at 8:30 p.m.

The concert will be followed by the city's annual fireworks display at approximately 10 p.m.

Gates for the concert will open at 4:30 p.m.

Advance tickets for the 2013 Stars and Stripes Concert and Festival will be available through Saturday at Kwik King stores in Steubenville, Wintersville, Toronto, Follansbee and Weirton. Tickets also are available at Peoples National Bank branches in Adena, Dillonvale and Mount Pleasant; the customer service center at the Fort Steuben Mall; the visitors center at Historic Fort Steuben; at the chamber office at 630 Market St., Steubenville; or online at

"Rose Angelica to Host Free Concert"

Angelica to host free concert Sunday

June 21, 2012

By MARK J. MILLER - Staff writer , The Herald-Star

STEUBENVILLE - Mingo Junction resident and singer/songwriter Rose Angelica claimed she knew what girls really wanted, and that led to an unexpected second career as a country music star.

Angelica penned the song "Girls Just Wanna Drink Beer" as a light-hearted spoof with a twist on the bar scene, and that song not only landed her a contract with Lamon Records of Nashville but also an unexpected career as a country music singer. Angelica has spent the past year touring and promoting her four-song EP recorded in Nashville last year.

A video for the song shot at the Spot Bar last summer led to something even more unlikely - a hit record and a new rising star on the Americana circuit. Now Angelica is returning home and celebrating after appearing at the Nashville Songwriters' Festival and the Country Music Association's Fanfair Festival.

Angelica is giving her local fans what they want in the form of a free concert, set to begin at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Spot Bar, 217 S. Fourth St. The concert, billed as Rose and her Friends, also will include performances by the Four Swinging Jazzbos, the Chrisagis Brothers and Lauren Mascitti.

Angelica said the event will be a laid back affair and include a barbecue and other surprises. She added it was a way for locals to watch what she does up close and personal.

"The concert is free," she said. "We're going to have a cookout, and it's going to be a mix of jazz, country and gospel."

Angelica said she's enjoyed life on the road, but she's ready for a few weeks back home.

"I've been in Nashville for the past three weeks," she said. "I performed all over town and signed a lot of autographs.

"'Girls Just Wanna Drink Beer' was my big hit and video," she continued, adding there are more songs yet to be released. "This song is doing so well we haven't released (any other songs) yet. This is just a music festival with all my pals. I want to give the valley a different taste of all kinds of different music. This also is the first anniversary of the (shooting of) the actual video for the song."

The road has been kind to Angelica, and she said she's even been opening for rock bands. She's also been labeled as "rockabilly" for the rock shows, she said.

"I played all over Florida at different festivals," she said, adding she also performs songs by her musical heroes such as Hank Williams Sr. "It's been great fun, and everyone's treated me really well, even though I'm old enough to be their mother. Everybody knows the song, and they all say to me, 'Oh - You're the one that wrote that?' Nashville received me well. I was surprised."

Angelica is known locally as a music educator and organizer of the annual Dean Martin Festival, but she said in her heart she's always wanted one thing - to be a top-notch songwriter like her idol Johnny Cash.

"I've always liked country music, and I've seen Cash many times," said Angelica. "My plan was to be a songwriter for the stars. I never dreamed I'd become a performer myself."

Angelica does all her own booking and performs with no backing tracks or a band - just herself and her acoustic guitar. Her stock has risen so fast she's even gained an endorsement deal with Dean guitars. She said performing is all about one thing - having fun.

"My whole thing is to have fun and enjoy myself," she said. "The bars love 'Girls Just Wanna Drink Beer.' It helps them because people want to order beers when I perform it. I also do a lot of older songs, too, including Hank Williams Sr. and junior. I do old country/bluegrass songs, and they eat it up. My own songs - I call them 'the songs of my life.'"

Angelica said she's most proudest of a recent gig for American troops at Fort Knox, Ky.

"I think that's the greatest show I ever played," she said, adding most of troops were home from action in Afghanistan. "They were so excited to be home and alive."

New Music Collection Released from Americana Singer/Songwriter Rose Angelica
"Girls Just Wanna Drink Beer" is the title of her 4-song EP, Single and Video


Rose AngelicaPRLog (Press Release) - Jul 18, 2011 - Americana singer/songwriter Rose Angelica is no stranger to music. Her new music collection entitled "Girls Just Wanna Drink Beer" is being released this week on Lamon Records. The 4-song EP features a sampling of the fun and wonderful tunes and lyrics this talented artist has to offer.

Though she's found her niche in acoustic-folk style songwriting, she's no novice when it comes to music. Playing in all sorts of bands since she was 12 years old, she earned a Master's degree in Music Education from Ohio State University. Then, after graduating from college, she spent the next 35 years teaching music in the Ohio Valley before landing a record deal with Lamon Records.

"Rose is a unique talent," says Dave Moody, president of the 50 year old label Lamon Records. "Her songs are so real and honest... we felt she would find an audience for the music she's singing and writing."

The 4-song EP features the title cut "Girls Just Wanna Drink Beer," a girls night out anthem that rings true in small towns and big cities all over the country. "My Man" a tongue and cheek tune that talks about older guys and their habits around the house. "Grass is Greener" is a bluegrass stomp that could be heard at any acoustic music festival on any given weekend. And "Prescription to Party" is a call to clear up a case of the blues with all the doctor orders.

The EP is being released nationwide at all online music outlets including iTunes, Amazon and many others. The single "Girls Just Wanna Drink Beer" is being released to radio on a number of broadcast servers and the video by the same title is now on YouTube.

"Area Woman On Her Way To Country Music Career"

Area woman on her way to country music career

June 23, 2011
By MARK J. MILLER - Staff writer ( ,

MINGO JUNCTION Rose Angelica said she knows her singing ability didn't earn her the attention of a famous Nashville producer but her songwriting did.

Angelica is best known to local residents as a gifted musician and teacher as well as the chairman and organizer of the annual Dean Martin Festival.

She said it's a bit of a fluke she's been signed to a two-year contract with a major Nashville label, but it's not always about the look or the singing ability in Nashville, it's all about the songs.

That faith in her songs and a little bit of luck has landed Angelica a contract with Nashville-based Lamon Records, a new, four-song EP recorded in Music City U.S.A. and a crew from the label coming to Steubenville to the Spot Bar Friday to shoot a video for Angelica's "Girls Just Want to Drink Beer," the first single off the EP.

"I'm asking anyone who wants to come to be in the video be at the Spot Bar by 8 p.m. Friday," said Angelica, adding the more, the merrier, and the video eventually will be broadcast on the Country Music Television cable network.

"Nashville producer Dave Moody will be here with his crew Thursday and Friday, and they are going to shoot the video Friday," she said.

"The CD will be released nationally July 19," Angelica continued, adding it will be available on iTunes and "It was recorded at Kingswood Studios in Nashville in April."

Angelica, who has a master's degree in music education from Ohio State University, has a long history locally of being an active musician and music educator. She also said she's written music from an early age, and living in the Ohio Valley, also developed an interest in country music.

"I've been writing music since I was a kid," said Angelica. "I always liked to write, and I always liked country music."

Angelica said she put most of her performing and writing aside when she married Richard Angelica 22 years ago, but she had an interest in recording one of her songs. So Angelica went to Studio L in Weirton in 2010 and recorded "The Wish." The song eventually was a hit on Internet radio and music websites.

"That's when Dave Moody heard the song and fell in love with it," said Angelica. "He asked me if I had any more songs, and I said 'yes.' So he asked me to send him a kitchen-table recording of just me singing seven of my songs. He got it and offered me a two-year deal with the company."

Angelica said the label is marketing her as "Americana," a subset of country music that's rooted in more traditional forms such as Appalachian folk music. Americana has grown in the last few years, with independent labels cropping up specializing in releasing more traditionally-based folk styles. So are festivals catering to fans of Americana, and Angelica said she's slated to play one the largest.

"I'm going to be playing a huge show in Nashville, the Americana Music Festival, in October," she said. "I never claimed to be a singer. I've always been a trumpet player."

Angelica said her and her producer's hope is a major female country artists picks up on "Girls Just Want to Drink Beer" and record it as a kind of anthem for women.

"(Moody) thinks it could he huge if that happened," Angelica said, adding Nashville is always looking for a good song. "Everyone's looking for songs. If you are a good writer you can get your foot in the door."

One side effect of her new career will be her retirement as chairman of the Dean Martin Festival Committee. However, the festival will continue, she added.

"I'm just not going to have time to organize it with my new music career," she said, adding others will be organizing the festival. "It will go on like it always has."
