Roadkill Ghostchoir shows their stuff on David Letterman

Although the name Roadkill Ghost Choir might conjure up a few images one would rather not think of, the band itself is hard to forget. With a sound that mixes rock, blues and country, RGC is climbing the ladder of success at wind-speed.. Not only have they spent the past year touring and playing the major festival circuit, they can now add television to there list of achievements.

A performance at Doug Fir Lounge in Portland, Oregon recently got them on NBC's First Look with former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky. The show aired right after Saturday Night Live (not a bad lead-in). This past Friday night found them as the musical guest on “The Late Show” with David Letterman. When asked about the experience of being on David Letterman, frontman Andrew Shepard had this to say:

We felt incredibly fortunate to have the chance to play Letterman. It was incredibly stressful and terrifying playing in a studio with big cameras in your face and David Letterman standing a few feet away. It wasn't our normal scene but after it was over, we all felt pretty relieved and overall excited we did it... Without throwing up on TV."

The band, comprised of brothers Andrew, Maxx, and Zach Shepard, along with Kiffy Meyers, Joey Davoli, and Stephen Garza, originally hail from DeLand, Florida, but now call Athens, Georgia home.

While the member’s major influences include Wilco, Gram Parsons, Bob Dylan, and Fleetwood Mac, there are also undercurrents of Radiohead and Nirvana, lending the band an impish edge with broad appeal.

Roadkill Ghost Choir will be performing at the Georgia Theater in Athens on February 11 and will be hitting the road again in February supporting Caveman so check out their website for upcoming dates.
