Born of the mountains, Broke Down Rodeo is an Americana reflection of blues, country, folk and rockabilly following the inspirations of lead vocalists and song writers Anna Welcher and Larry Lacerte.
What started as the Copper Mountain Ski Patrol holiday party band grew and grew to go beyond the hill to spread the glories of it’s sound to the valleys and flatlands below. Anna came to join together with the band by way of a a mutually realized passion for good music discovered via a steamy rebound make-out session with multi-instrument threat Jonathan Burk. Nick Slaton and Bill Ryan joined up, by strictly platonic measures, bringing the heartbeat of the band with their lively percussion and thumpin' stand-up bass, respectively. When not dangling from a rope on high alpine routes across the Rockies and Sierras, Matt ‘Sunshine’ Lovas, is yet another former Copper Patroller who brings his San Diego raised, firebird shred-style lead guitar to the band.
