Johnny Conqueroo is a highly kinetic blues-rock trio from Lexington, KY. After releasing their first EP in 2015, the band drew the attention not only of local and regional audiences (selling out venue after venue), but also industry professionals. Currently partnering up with veteran producer Tom Zutaut (Guns N Roses, Motley Crue, Tesla, etc) and engineer David Barrick (Kentucky Headhunters, Black Stone Cherry, Vince Gill), a new record is in the works. Momentum has only continued to soar with their fanbase outgrowing venues and the reach of social media inspriring booking requests in new markets.

While 2016 is looking to be a watershed year for these dudes, it is important to look at the grassroots support and organic exposure from 2015, which pushed their EP towards the top of the regional charts in both air-play (WRFL College Radio) and record sales (Independently owned "CD-Central"), leading to a popular "WRFL-Live" performance on Thanksgiving eve. As word spread, and EPs changed hands, eventually even R & R Hall of Famer Billy Gibbon's took notice

Frontier Folk Nebraska is not a folk band. They are not from Nebraska. Rock and roll from Covington, KY

Frontier Folk Nebraska believes in the continuing relevance of a
classic‐era kind of alt‐rock that flirts with occasional messiness in
order to let its organically electric sound come together without too
much art‐think or conceptualism. Faith is put in the music’s energy
as the right conduit to showcase interesting songwriting… Neither
from Nebraska nor a folk group, Frontier Folk Nebraska is instead a
Cincinnati band that sounds like the Replacements attacking power
pop with their thrashing guitar‐and‐drum energy kept in check by
their love for melody and appealing song structure.” - Steve Rosen

FFN tours in a 1999 F150 and has played shows with Jason Isbell,
Damien Jurado, Pierced Arrows (ex Dead Moon), Polyphonic Spree,
and St. Paul & The Broken Bones, playing extensively across the
Midwest and South since forming in 2007. They are also 2014
Cincinnati Entertainment Awards nominees for BEST ROCK ACT.
