Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers inducted into Arizona Hall of Fame

One of the most exciting live acts on the road today, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers are musical beacons of the Southwest fueled by witty and insightful lyrics, crunching guitar riffs, a dynamic rhythm section, and tequila. Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers are the only act to release seven consecutive studio albums to land on the top 10 of Billboard’s Internet Sales Chart, two at No. 1, all released on a 100% independent record label.

Roger Clyne has toured around the world over his 20-year career, starting with The Refreshments. The seminal Tempe, Arizona band made big waves in the ’90s both on college and alternative rock radio as well as MTV with the songs “Banditos” (with the infamous chorus, “Everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people”) and “Down Together” as well as writing the theme for TV’s “King of the Hill.”

More than 20 years later, Clyne and Refreshments drummer P.H. Naffah, along with bassist Nick Scropos and lead guitarist Jim Dalton keep the songs of The Refreshments alive, while adding to their own ever-growing musical legacy.

A testament to their extremely loyal fan base is the band’s annual music festival in Rocky Point, Mexico, called Circus Mexicus, which unfortunately has been postponed due to covid-19.
