Colebrook Road to Roe Entertainment

Roe Entertainment has announced the recruitment of the Pennsylvania/Mid-Atlantic area band Colebrook Road to its talent agency.  

Jim Roe, founder of Roe Entertainment, said ……

“We are very excited to be working with Colebrook Road as their exclusive booking agency, ….  [Colebrook Road is a] great band of pickers that has won numerous band and instrument contests over the years. They primarily perform their own material with some traditional material and a few bluegrass style pop and rock covers thrown in. They do all of them well and their live performances are full of energy.”

Wade Yankey, the mandolin player with Colebrook Road, traces the steps towards this link-up … 

“We met Jim at IBMA in 2017. We almost didn’t go, but got invited to Stephen Mougin’s excellent band coaching workshop a few weeks before the conference and decided to make the trip. While we were there (for only a day or so) we we’re lucky enough to showcase up in the Charm City suite. Our buddy Roger Moss (formerly of Podunk Bluegrass Festival) came out and brought Jim along. We got to chat some the rest of the time we were at IBMA and stayed in touch. Jim came to see us a number of times this year at IBMA and the rest, as they say, is history.”

Colebrook Road was formed as a consequence of a meeting between Jesse Eisenbise and Wade Yankey in September 2008, having expanded from a four-piece unit to a quintet in 2015 with the addition of Mark Rast on banjo. 

The band is composed of lead singer, guitar player, and songwriter Jesse Eisenbise; mandolinist and winner of the 2014 Watermelon Park Fest mandolin contest Wade Yankey; upright bassist, and tenor vocalist Jeff Campbell; banjoist, bass vocalist, dobro player, and winner of the Telluride
