Peter & The Rowers Brightened Up The Czech Porta Festival

Everyone who attended the international Porta festival in the Czech Republic couldn’t miss the performance of an excellent country band Peter & The Rowers from Slovakia, who proved with their typical charm and ease what makes the top European band. They took the stage as special guests at the final galaconcert and served the Czech audience an extraordinary 40-minute show, which was also aired live all over the country.

They opened the show with a smart remake of Alan Jackson's "Thank God For The Radio", followed by the smash hit "Blind Horses", which was the band's first chart-topping song in Europe. Right after a beautiful Garth Brooks ballad "The Cowboy Song" (with Slovak lyrics!) Peter & The Rowers introduced their original western-swing song "Which Way Do I Go". When the band remembered Johnny Cash with "Folsom Prison Blues" and they sang the final verse in Czech, they received a really cheerful response from the crowd. No Peter & The Rowers' show would be complete without their signature song, "I'm Leavin'", which spent incredible 14 consecutive weeks at the top of ECMA Top 100 Chart. A very impresive moment of the show came with an unusual performace of Daniels' classic "The Devil Went Down To Georgia", with amazing Frantisek Jano on fiddle. The show was closed with a remarkable rocking version of "Ghost Riders In The Sky" folowed by an encore "Rollin' My Sweet Baby's Arms".

No matter whether they sing in English, Slovak or Czech, the result is excellent hard-core country music that can be barely heard anywhere else. Attending a show of Peter & The Rowers is always an outstanding experience.
