The RHYOLITE SOUND
Formed in Las Vegas, NV in 2013, The Rhyolite Sound bring their own desert honky tonk to the stage, blending elements of Outlaw, Rockabilly, Honky Tonk, Blues, and Rock n Roll. Their aim is to attract the hardest-core traditionalist as well as the most casual country music fan with a live show that's raucous and rowdy, containing plenty of banter in between songs to keep their audience entertained. Delicately weaving their melodies and harmonies alongside madness and mayhem, The Rhyolite Sound are purveyors of pure honky tonk in an impure world
Rob Leines' music originated in the Southeast within the Appalachian Mountains. With the influence of Country, Rock and Roll, and Blues, his unique Americana sound was born on the hills of Tennessee. Soon after Leines expanded to the west. While welding and metal working for the oil and gas industry along the pacific coast, Rob's music took on a more raw and gritty side. The blue collar lifestyle and southern roots make for a genuine representation of the American songwriter through his music. The Rob Leines Band is a fresh sound, with a rowdy charisma and attitude that country rock needs.
