Taped in celebration of the 10th anniversary season of "AETN Presents" (which will premiere in November), Rodney and the gang are bringing a high energy party to our headquarters' studios. Block, a native of Dumas, and his core ensemble -including Sam Carroll on keyboards, Jonathon Burks on drums and Oliver "OT" Thomas on bass - have been performing together across Arkansas, the South and abroad for five years. Their unique sound and bond show in their latest album, "Steel," and are sure to come across on the stage. From up tempo jazz to ballads - including pieces from the new album - it's a show not to be missed!
