The Love Still Flows!

The Bellamy Brothers

The Bellamy Brothers

Howard and David continue to prove that the trail they’ve ridden to fame has been as unique as their music itself—music that is now celebrating 40 years of success.

The road that started on the pop music charts in the ‘70’s, took a winding turn into country music in the ‘80’s, paving the way for duos to come, such as Brooks & Dunn, Montgomery Gentry, Big & Rich, and previously—The Judds. But before the road forked into country, the musical odyssey of brothers Bellamy started creatively smoldering in their home state of Florida, before exploding nationally amidst the ’70’s pop music culture of L.A.

The brothers first official gig was in 1968, playing a free show with their father at the Rattlesnake Roundup in San Antonio, Florida. They honed their early skills playing black clubs throughout the south, and singing backup for artists such as Percy Sledge, Eddie Floyd, and Little Anthony & The Imperials. Within a few months, the brothers moved north, immersing themselves and their rock/country sound in the Atlanta market, where the Allman Brothers were the emerging kings of the music world.

With the dawning of the Age of Aquarius on the horizon, and America embroiled in a smoke haze of drugs, civil unrest and an unpopular war, The Bellamy’s music picked-up the hard driving edge that bespoke the times. Songwriting had become David Bellamy’s drug of choice during the long road gigs he and Howard were regularly pulling bodies and equipment to and from. It was his songwriting that was posed to soon provide the duo a national breakout.

The break came in the form of the hit, “Spiders & Snakes,” written by David and recorded by Jim Stafford. The song became a smash, eventually selling more than three million units worldwide. It became the catapult that rocketed the brother onto the L.A. music scene. Young and impressionable, Howard and David fell into the musical circle of the greats of the day: Bob Dylan, James Taylor, and Van Morrison, as well as West Coast based country rockers like Poco and the Byrds. It was a creative shoe that fit.

Jared Rogerson

Much of Jared Rogerson’s songwriting draws from the 17 years he devoted to riding wild bareback broncs on the rodeo circuit, along with thousands of miles atop broke saddle horses traversing the rugged mountains near his home in Pinedale, Wyoming. His respect for both the tame and unruly are underlined in his lyrics which depict modern themes of love, heartbreak, determination, and defiance from the optimistic perspective of an ever changing West.From his early youth, much of Jared’s spare time was often occupied writing songs, though it wasn’t until his sophomore year in college that he finally purchased his first guitar. He casually learned new chords over the next several years until one final rodeo wreck spurred him into taking his music more seriously. Now, Jared sports an L-shaped scar on the inner joint of his riding arm where the biceps tendon was re-attached. Not the worst of his injuries, but it occurred at a pivotal moment in his life. “I like this scar. It gave me the opportunity to escape with my life and chase a different dream.”
