The Rockwells began as an acoustic country rock duo featuring Ronnie Peel (aka Rockwell T. James) and Bobby Fletcher.
Starting with two acoustic guitars and a love of vocal harmonies, Ronnie and Bobby created a spirited repertoire of country, blues and pop classics. They have released an album of their favorites (Cover Story) which peaked at #19 on the Australian Blues and Roots Charts in 2015.
Ronnie’s resume reads like the history of Oz Rock – Missing Links, Britain’s Thunderclap Newman, La De Dahs, Rockwell T. James and the Rhythm Aces, Scattered Aces with Rose Tattoo’s Pete Wells and Chris Turner, and of course Stevie Wright / John Paul Young and the All Star Band.
Bobby’s an experienced guitarist and recording engineer over 30 years. Playing in Ward 10 ( Star Hotel favourites), US blues singer/guitarist Michael Barretto (Wangaratta Jazz Festival, Frankston Guitar Festival), playing many Tamworths, and more recently JPY and Newcastle’s Sure Things.
