Flamingo Rodeo
Flamingo Rodeo
Flamingo Rodeo is the solo-turned full band project of former Ne-hi guitarist/vocalist Mikey Wells, coming together with Chicago music scene vets to create a fusion of cactus rock and pontoon pop. Featuring Alex Otake (formerly of Ne-hi, Earring) on the drums, Matt Ciarleglio (Rabble Rabble) on bass, Tim Gurnig (Deep Breath) on guitar, and the newest addition of guitarist/vocalist Jake Gold (Creepy Band), Flaming Rodeo dips into acid-tinged country rock, noise guitar-filled romantic ballads, breezy summer AM ear candy, and even religious drone songs! The Fabulous Flaming Brothers provide a little something for everyone in their purveyance of the vintage pop spectrum.

Jacob Miller
A Wisconsin native, Jacob Miller left his hometown for Portland, OR the summer of 2009 via Amtrak; bringing with him only a suitcase and a Fender Jaguar guitar. After one year in the city - he left to travel North America to study and perform music while working on farms and ranches between travels. Time spent as a farm hand in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina shaped his devotion to the finger-picking style of the region. Playing along with old recordings and locals in the surrounding areas of Appalachia, Miller delved into the inner workings of the music’s practice and history.
After 7+ years of leading a 6-piece jazz band, performing both throughout North America and internationally - Miller now focuses his efforts on a different kind of songwriting and storytelling.
With an affinity for minimalist pop and firm roots planted in American traditional music, Jacob Miller crafts a timeless sound unique to his style and abilities.
In 2019, Jacob will release and tour a debut album which displays his abilities as a performer, writer and composer. Recorded and performed entirely by Miller in a SE Portland living room turned studio - songs and ideas come together to form an album that is hard, honest and heartfelt.
