The Reach Around Rodeo Clowns Story Part 1

By George Peffley
the Lanark Records News Team

The Jones brothers from the Reach Around Rodeo Clowns grew up wild, crazy and out of control! Their mother was a singing star that showed horses in the 1940s up to the 1960s. Their father was an old Kentucky horse trainer that sang the country blues on his Framus folk guitar and was a Korean War hero. Wendell, (vocals) and Quentin, (guitar) along with their late brother Bruce, grew up riding, training, showing and racing horses all over the USA. They got in loads of trouble, ended many fights, and ran with everyone from captains of industry to the lowest of souls.


Many people think the songs these boys write are just crazy, funny tunes, when in reality, most of their songs are based on real events, and people, they just changed a few names to protect the innocent.
Over the next few weeks leading up to their new release, “Rockabilly Deluxe”, to be released on 9/24/13 by Lanark Records, their strange but true tale in will be told with short stories, great photos, and press clipping from the last 100 years. There is no other band in the world like the Reach Around Rodeo Clowns

Does the lead singer in your favorite rockabilly band play polo? The Reach Around Rodeo Clowns singer does! Wendell was an awarding wining polo player at Valley Forge Military Academy and won the "Outstanding Horsemanship Award".
