The reckless youth of psychedelic rock. The wise old soul of the blues. This eclectic Kentucky band plays like they have nothing to lose. After releasing their first EP in 2015, the band’s raw sound and energy drew the attention of several 2016 festivals. With continued grassroots support and organic exposure, Johnny Conqueroo is touring in support of their LP “Washed Up” Johnny Conqueroo has "shared the bill" with artists like, Chrome Pony, Blackfoot Gypsies, Wax Fang, Vandaveer, Diarrhea Planet, Tyler Childers, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Bendigo Fletcher, and even Tesla.

Quotes from Press:

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.
