Join us in Wilmington this week, as Free At Noon Hits the Road with Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers. These Arizona Rock & Rollers have been making music & touring for over a decade. They pull into Philadelphia for a full show at World Cafe Live Friday night, but not before joining us for an XPN Free At Noon earlier that day at World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington!

****Please Note: This Free At Noon is in Wilmington, Upstairs at World Cafe Live At The Queen*****

A third generation Arizonan, songwriter Roger Clyne regularly bares his soul in rock ‘n’ roll originals that are often tinted with Southwest influences: a verse in Spanish here or a line about a desert landscape there. Clyne has been combining his acclaimed lyrical talents with his infectious sound for decades. He built a lasting name for himself as part of the 90’s rock group The Refreshments and continues to impress with his southwest inspired music with The Peacemakers. Together, the band has successfully built a passionate following and is the only independent band to have five consecutive albums debut in the top ten on Billboard’s Internet Sales chart.

On Friday, May 3, at 12pm, Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers will play a special acoustic set for XPN Free At Noon at World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington. RCPM play a full show at World Cafe Live, Philadelphia on Friday night, May 3.

Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers (RCPM) are proof that the crazy, reckless, restless, swaggering soul of American rock is still burning a hole in the night sky…guitars blaze, quake and quiver, drums slip, thud and thunder with killer melodies and hooks and the occasional reggae or mariachi rhythm laced through the middle to keep it all honest and interesting. — Paste Magazine
