BEHOLD......THE PSYCHEDELIC RIVERCHICKENS. The P.R.C. formed in the early 21st century in Sonoma County California. After a bizarre incident involving a chicken, a banjo, a wood chipper, and a large amount of alcohol, this four man freak fest emerged on the music scene with a sound unheard by most.
Coalescing rock, country, blues, metal, and perhaps a touch of polka, they pioneer their way through new musical horizons. Downtrodden, yet uplifting, their clever songs touch on all emotions. They actually formed by accident when their alter ego heavy metal band STOMACH was asked to perform an "unplugged" set at a local event. The strong positive response was unexpected.
In 2003 they released a live CD, LIVE AT THE TRAXX. Again, the response was overwhelming. After releasing their first studio recording, HALF DOZEN OVER EASY on MOHAWK AND HEADBAND records, they have continued to snowball through Sonoma county and beyond with their unique brand of music, capturing the attention, and endorsements, of fine companies like EMG pickups , MESA-BOOGIE amplification, and DRAGONFLY clothing to name a few. A double cd/dvd is in the "chicken smoker" at this time, along with legendary live performances both locally and regionally. One of the coolest things about the P.R.C. is that their diverse musical abilities enable them to play for a wide range of audiences, both young and old.
