What they're saying!
"The Downtown Livewires are exactly that! LIVEWIRES! It's like hiring a party in a box; They come with enthusiasm, talent, energy and always bring a happy crowd! The Downtown Livewires is a group of dedicated, knowledgeable, well- rehearsed and hardworking professional musicians who come to play their hearts out and raise the roof every time..." ~ Andy Green, Director of Productions, Downtown Bentonville, Inc.
"I am never surprised when Roger Thomas and The Downtown LIVEWIRES Band brings the largest crowd of the summer to our City of Bentonville's Orchard Concert Series. They bring their own crowd, and they have a great following. Over the last two years, they have proven to be professional, and one of the best sounds of any band we hire. We will continue to hire them for events in our city." ~ David Wright, Director of Parks and Recreation for the City of Bentonville
"I've been doing music business with Roger since the mid-80's. Most recently, he brought his blues band, The Downtown LIVEWIRES Band, to my Club 152 on Beale Street in Memphis. They packed one of the largest crowds we had this year (2012) on Saturday night, September 22. Additionally, their crowd buys drinks and food, which helps any "for profit" entertainment business, like ours. We will work with The Downtown LIVEWIRES Band again, and look forward to a great party atmosphere just like the last time!" ~ Wilbur Hensley, owner of multiple night clubs in Memphis, TN
"Down home Memphis blues in Northwest Arkansas? You bet - Just call THE DOWNTOWN LIVEWIRES! I've mixed countless bands over the years and these guys lay it down right. Always a pleasure to work with, too!" ~ Evan Chronister, SCB Audio Productions
"I had the greatest pleasure in being able to host The Downtown Livewires at my studio for what turned out to be a fantastic live recording experience for me. It was a classic full group set up involving many veterans of the Blues. From voice to the rhythm section and everything in between....these guys communicated musically straight out of the box. I'm very thankful for them letting me participate."
