In December of 2009 six members of the American Rogues competed as members of the Rogues against nearly 65 other bands from around the world to win Irish Brewing Company Strangford Lough's 1st Battle of the Celtic Bands. As a result those six members then appeared at the Monte Carlo Casino & Resort in Las Vegas on St. Paddy's Day, 2010. In October of 2012 the Rogues split. Nelson Stewart and other members of the band continued to perform as the American Rogues. Randy Wothke and other musicians continued as the Rogues. Following Wothke's departure as drummer, and the addition of his replacement, the incredibly gifted Catherine 'Hammer of God' Hauke, the AMERICAN ROGUES began playing higher profile shows than ever before, including tours of Japan, Guam, Italy, and Spain as well as the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo (billed as the largest annual indoor event in the world), Constitution Hall in Washington, National Tartan Day in New York City, Pebble Beach Golf Club, the Baltimore Golf & Country Club, the 150th Antigonish Highland Games, the Ohio Celtic Festival, the New Hampshire Highland Games, etc. They even kicked off the Maryland Music Awards. Many venues immediately rehire the American Rogues for the following year.
The AMERICAN ROGUES have released several recordings and a DVD. Ceili Magazine called 3 LBS. of RAGE, 'The best Celtic rock CD produced this year and one of the best Celtic music CDs... period!'. Few bands provide both the highly polished instrumentals that only elite musicians can perform, and the rousing songs that inspire crowds to sing, laugh, and cry. Indeed, listen to the audio tracks provided on this site's music player and you will see that the American Rogues are several exceptional bands in one.
