The Modelos are Vancouver's Rock 'n' Roll Cowboy Surfers! The group was formed in 2004 when Joe Rotundo and Mike Kenney collaborated in a songwriting adventure that would produce tunes like, "Somewhere West" & "Death Ranch". Brad Ferguson and Geoff Hicks were the natural selection as the rhythm section and thus born was The Modelos! The band has three albums available, the first self-titled CD was released in 2006, the second, "Saddle Justice" released in 2008, and their latest, "Barrel Fever" a 7" Vinyl EP released in 2019. The group has a unique style that mixes surf-instrumentals with an alternative country sound. If you get a chance to see the band live, don't miss it. Their spirited energy and stage antics will have you riding high and shouting for more!
