The Rose River Band... eclectic acoustic rock covers w/great harmonies
Our band has fine reputation of great harmonies, unique covers, and variety in instrumentation.

We maintain a very good schedule on our FaceBook Site  We also have a few samples of our music at our MySpace page.  MySpace's rules don't allow us to post our cover songs so enjoy a few of our live cuts of our originals posted there.  Covers are 95% percent of what we do in concert, but Tim & Dave though have been writing much of their life.  We do work a few into our concert; Eight is Midnight is actually a co-written piece by Tim and Dave, and Shelly wrote the flute break to give it a truly original flair but still sounds like it could be from the Jethro Tull or Marshall Tucker. 

Our little group started as Holmen Lutheran Church's praise band, ACTS. (Accentuating Christ Thru Song), and some of us still play one weekend each month.  With our Lutheran ELCA experience, plus our availability of sound system allows for us to make your outside services come together in song and sound.  We take the worry out of wedding music; and can supply you a CD samplers from the past.   We even have busted into smaller settings of just soloist, instrumental guitar / flute, and have backed up other soloist.

We have played private parties and fine establishments in the LaCrosse area including The Waterfront, The Freight House, The Trempealeau Hotel, Features Sports Bar & Grill, and The Blue Cup Coffeehouse (whose owner Kim gave us our first gig back in 2003).  Our song list is varied and includes songs from many well known artists like Indigo Girls, Jason Marz, The Civil Wars, James Taylor, Mary Chapin-Carpenter, John Prine, Van Morrison, Santanna, Marshall Tucker, The Band, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, The Beatles, CSN&Y as well as some obscure artists like the Gear Daddies, Samantha Farrell, and the BoDeans.  We'll be able to supply you a cd of some live cuts, or names and numbers of people you can call for references.  You have a need? email Dave@theroseriverband.com and we'll see if we can fit your schedule.

There's MORE... yes this band has a deep passion for music and it flows into our life.  Dave maintains a house concert series called BLUFF VIEW CONCERTS from his home two miles north of Holmen.  About four times a year he brings in talented National touring acoustic artist to play some AWESOME personal concerts.  Please check out his Face Book fan page at:  Bluff-View-House-Concerts Blog bluffviewconcerts.blogspot.com.

Dave and Tim both venture into the world of solo work. 

 Dave had released a Digital CD in iTunes named Gypsy Soul by Dave Zeman, and all the information is at his blog: ;but the sales were too slow so he didn't renew it.  He also diligently posts to several blogs, and his YouTube account has a numerous covers, originals, and guitar playing instructional videos. Dave has played a few gigs with friends as the Lucky Dog band; they especially love to play Elmaro Vineyards.

Tim has MySpace site that he uses to very seldomly but he has a few original gems on there.  He has also been known to slip out and play with Steve Topel in a group called Guitar Logic.
