KASU presents Rock/Country band Faultline at March Bluesday Tuesday
KASU Radio’s March 11 Bluesday Tuesday concert at the Newport, Arkansas Country Club, presents Faultline, a versatile band based in Paragould, that reflects more than four decades of musical influences. The band includes Roger Roush on rhythm guitar and vocals; Stan Lloyd, lead guitar; Mike Rudi, bass guitar and vocals; and Gary Cremeens, drums and vocals.
Roger Roush developed an interest in music during the 1960s as a young boy playing in a Greene County group, The Purple Canteen, at high school dances and other local teen hot spots. During the late1970s and early 1980s, Roush joined a band known as Turning Point that played at nightclubs in northeast Arkansas and southeast Missouri.
Stan Lloyd, on lead guitar, and Mike Rudi, bass guitar and vocals, teamed up in the 1970s to form the Driving Blues Band. Lloyd left the music scene for a time and Rudi joined with Gary Cremeens as members of the Paragould country music band known as Gary Prince and Sugar Creek, which has opened for high profile artists Don Williams, the Kentucky Head Hunters, Ronnie McDowell and Sawyer Brown. Rudi and Cremeens currently play in both Faultline and Sugar Creek.
Roush told KASU, “Faultline’s repertoire doesn’t come down as strictly rock or country but has a nostalgic flavor reflecting more than 40 years of musical influence. Our audiences seem to enjoy grooving to the music from their good old days.”
Bluesday Tuesday concerts are held the second Tuesday night of each month from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Newport Country Club, 703 Walker Drive next to Newport High School. The concerts are free admission, made possible by the sponsorship of ASU-Newport, C and C Distributors and Harris Ford. KASU personnel will pass the hat for the audience members to show their appreciation with tips for the band.
