The Outlaw Orchestra

Ryan Thundersmith

Pedro Briley

Dave Roux

Three accomplished musicians from the south coast of the UK exuding the Saturday

night hell raising escapism of the weekend. Dubbed ‘Heavy Grass’ by one DJ due to the combination of Hard Rock meets Country twang but maybe most accurate would be as suggested by another radio station:  


The Outlaw Orchestra ~ The love child of Motorhead and Johnny Cash!


The Outlaws are at home at a bike festival, an arts centre, a steamy rock bar or a country stage and can adjust the volume accordingly.  Slide guitar, Pedal Steel guitar, Banjo, gravel vocals and solid thumping drums delivering original catchy hard rocking songs about everyday life laced with deep south spirits and delivered with a British rock n Roll sense of humour.


They drew the biggest crowd ever at Ramblin Man’s Rising stage. They pulled the largest outdoor crowd at Custom Rock n Blues Bike festival since Motorhead.  Invited countless times to grace the Sheffield 02 stage, Sheffield Bowl and Planet Rock stages.  They have toured/supported Skid Row, The Dead Daisies, The Darkness, Brothers Osbourne, Phil Campbell, Reef,  Diamond Head, Pete Way, King King, Kris Barras, Brave Revival, Kira Mac and so many more.


The constant on the road hard work has paid off with weekly air time of Planet Rock Radio, BBC Introducing, countless online radio stations and hitting the pages of Hard Rock Hell mag, Metal Planet, Emerging Rock bands and Powerplay Magazine.


The records demonstrate musical ability and clever song writing but it’s live that they thrive putting on a show wherever they play, pulling the audience in and ensuring a wild night for everyone, no better demonstrated by pulling the largest queue to a merchandise stand ever at Planet Rocks Winters End festival selling out all merchandise within an hour.


The Outlaw Orchestra will leave you with a sore foot from stamping, a sore face from grinning and some devilish Outlaw in your blood!

"The Outlaw Orchestra: rebellious, unapologetic, and undeniably talented. As they gear up to unleash “La Familia” upon the world, one thing is certain – this band is poised to steal the hearts of listeners everywhere.” - Jace Media

"If The Outlaw Orchestra are NWOCR’s best kept secret then we’ll keep banging on about Southampton’s finest until someone gets the hint. Pete Briley’s riotous retro-styled fretwork is reason enough to add Born To Be A Thief to your country playlist. But Dave Roux seems determined to turn this three-and-a-half minute thrill ride into some kind of blues rock party. Everything about The Outlaw Orchestra is reassuringly off-trend. Roux and co. are a law unto themselves. And Born To Be A Thief is their most arresting effort yet.” - Rush on Rock

"The Outlaw Orchestra have been on an upward trajectory since they started and this new songs sound like they are about to make one more giant leap towards the summit of the Rock and Roll mountain" - Accidental Music Reviewer
