Adam Pope & The Rebel Roots



Entertainment as it should be at the beautifully renovated historic theater in downtown Greenville, TX! Get ready to be spoiled! Come enjoy an intimate show with close free parking, full 4 course dinner, luxurious seating, table service, and all gratuities included!

Adam Pope & the Rebel Roots band is a high-energy country/rockabilly group based just outside of Nashville, TN. They combine the raw sounds and unbridled energies of the Sun Record era, with respectful polish and substantive songwriting, soaked in classic country music sentiments. Their show is woven together with Hee-Haw like humor and front porch storytelling. From the hilarious snapshot of relationship dysfunction captured by "Your Mom" to the intimate, patriotic, tearjerker "Soldier's Wife" and more, Adam Pope & the Rebel Roots take the audience on an emotional and entertaining ride.

Band members are known to leap into the air while never missing a beat and you'll hear plenty of wild upright bass slappin' along the way!

Adam Pope has released several projects, including teaming up with Johnny Cash's and Carl Perkins' original drummer, WS "Fluke" Holland to record original music at the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis, TN.

Adam Pope & the Rebel Roots have played on the Music City Roots show in Nashville, TN; performed on RFD TV's "Midwest Country" show; and Adam is a member of the highly touted "Nashville Unleashed" roster of performing songwriters who are currently being featured in a TV series airing on Blue Highways TV, Angel Two (Dish Network), the Heartland channel, and more. Adam released his latest album called "Story & Song" in July of 2015.. "The saying in Nashville is 'It all begins with a song' and I have never challenged that thought until recently. There are SO many songs out there, but not near as many good stories. So my new album will be built on the principle that it all begins with a story, and ends with a song."

- Adam D. Pope

• "The Rebel Roots" is a band name that reflects their traditional country and high-energy  rockabilly passions. Their legs shake and their hips swing at that Sun Records sound, originally made by hillbillies, who added a gospel influenced, rockin' beat to what otherwise would've just been country or blues tunes. Before there was rock n' roll, there was rockabilly.

• The "rebel" in the name "Rebel Roots" describes the pioneering aspect of their music. Adam Pope and "The Rebel Roots: seek to perform rockabilly music with the same fast-paced, rebellious spirit of those early trailblazers who challenged the mainstream culture. At the same time, Adam and "The Rebel Roots" strive to explore and preserve the roots of country music by providing an energetic, clever, and traditional country variety show for all ages.
