|Adrienne Rose Music
|NOT your normal acoustic
|Adrienne, Joel and Pep have an unbridled passion for music and enjoy playing acoustic gigs,
both formal and informal. Adrienne and Joel have been married since February of 2009,
however, they have been together since 2007. Throughout their relationship, the common
denominator has always been music. Not long after they began dating, Adrienne and Joel
started playing a few songs at home and before long, they expanded their set list and began
performing in local venues.
Joel and Pep met when Joel was singing for "11th Voice" and Pep was drumming for "No Love
Lost"/"Edge of Life". Their bands played many shows together and all the guys became good
Pep called Joel about playing at a Breast Cancer Awareness Benefit in September 2011. Pep
had set up multiple bands to play the main stage (his band, "No Love Lost" being the headliner)
and asked Adrienne and Joel to play on a second stage in between the main stage bands. Pep
also asked if he could put together a little percussion rig and "sit in". They had a blast and the
people loved it and, as they say, the rest is history. Pep has played virtually every gig with
Adrienne and Joel since that benefit. At first, the gigs were billed as "Adrienne Rose Music with
special guest Pep Jones". In November 2011, Pep officially became part of
"Adrienne Rose Music".
"None of us can explain what happened at that benefit when we played together. It was like
instant chemistry. We didn't even really know what we were creating. We had no idea. We were
just having fun."
"People often ask us why we do what we do and why we gig so much. It's very simple really - we
get off on it. We absolutely love what we do. It's not anymore complicated than that. We've all
done it before in other bands, but there's something different with this - something special. It
has many elements of a full-band format, yet it's so primitive. We can't even really put a finger on
it. It just is what it is."
Through "Adrienne Rose Music", Adrienne, Joel and Pep have connected/re-connected with so
many awesome people in the local community and beyond - musicians and non-musicians
When we started playing with Pep, it was all about getting gigs - as many as we could, where
ever we could. We stayed pretty local at first and went to as many open-mics in and around
Middletown as we could, just trying to get our name out there. Shortly thereafter, we began to
branch out north and south. Now we play all over southwestern Ohio and are looking to expand
even further throughout the region.
What does the future hold?
Well, nobody knows for sure, but we do know that it's going to be good so
stay tuned . . .

|If you are looking for a big rock band with a big rock band sound and production, we are NOT it (well,
sometimes we are). We have a relatively small PA, a drum kit with a 16" kick affectionately known as "the
fetus", and we use house lights and no fog machine (maybe we should look into getting a fog machine
'cause those things are cool). But, if you like great music, not overbearingly loud, and an intimate "bon fire"
feel, come check us out and bring your friends because with us, it's all about the "FUN". See ya at the next
All are welcome! XO!
