I'm not kidding, Jon Rauhouse is the MAN!! His wife Jen is the BEST! Jon played at my wedding...my wife walked down the aisle to one of his songs! Just beautiful, we will never forget that moment! Thanks Jon!!! He's the secret weapon behind Neko Case, yeah that's him...Jon has lent his considerable talents to tours and recordings by Neko Case, Sally Timms, Kelly Hogan, Calexico, the Waco Brothers, and Giant Sand. Let’s not forget that the steel guitar and Hawaiian guitar are HARD to play, and he makes it look so easy.
Nicknames: “Orchid Fingers”, "Nicest Guy in Show Biz”
Representative Quote: “Oh, would you STOP it!!”
"Jon Rauhouse plays pedal steel guitar the way John Zorn plays the saxophone. That is, he thoroughly messes with your head as he takes you on a schizophrenic musical journey." Andy Whitman Paste Magazine
His new record - Steel Guitar Heart Attack is EXCELLENT!!!! Pick it up.
