The Modelos are Vancouvers Rock 'n' Roll Instrumental Cowboy Surfers. The group was formed in 2004 when Joe Rotundo and Mike Kenney collaborated in a songwriting adventure that would produce songs like, 'Somewhere West', & 'Down the Dusty Trail'. Brad Ferguson and Geoff Hicks were the natural selection as the rhythm section and thus born was The Modelos! The Modelos have just released their first self titled CD, and look forward to playing their brand of western rockabilly surf, in a honky tonk close to you. Some recent reviews of The Modelos new self titled CD... 'As much as Link Wray and Billy Strange is tossed in as Dick Dale, giving this disc a wave 'n' western vibe that crosses genres. Tasty & Twangin', this is perfect for Ipod sets for the slopes." -Stuart Derdeyn, The Vancouver Province. "The Modelos new self titled CD sports precision-picked Shadows- type ditties and roll licking high desert odes with titles like "Down the Dusty Trail", "Blood on the Saddle", and "Curse of the Cowboy", and there's nary a cover in the bunch." -Steve Newton, The Georgia Straight, Vancouver BC.
