Imagine tuning into your favorite Album Oriented Rock (AOR)  radio station in 1975 and hearing tracks by Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Free, Mountain, Grand Funk and other heavy rockers of the day. That era will always be considered The Golden Age of Rock Radio and The Golden Age of hard rockin' bands many of whom still are touring 40 years later.

Red Zone Rider (RZR) has captured the sound and the feeling of music that not only defined an era but became the template for all heavy rock styles since then.

Red Zone Rider looks to be a band that will make a significant impact in 2014. Solid songwriting, excellent instrumentation and vocals powered by inventive and locked-in drumming will put RZR in the cross hairs of lovers of hard rock, classic rock and blues rock. This music is as relevant today as it would have been in 1975. Red Zone Rider will take listeners on a musical journey spanning, at least, 4 decades. Maybe more. But, that's OK. In fact, it's more than OK.
