Doug Ratner & the Watchmen bring their brand of country fried rock 'n' roll down from Massachusetts, with Georgia's own Caleb Warren & the Perfect Gentlemen kicking things off with their ragtime dixieland blues.

Country fried rock n’ rollers, Doug Ratner & the Watchmen (DRAW) are a leather jacket wearing, red jean sporting, and cowboy boot strutting rock band with a burning desire to rock your faces off. Empowered with a message of rebellion and freedom, these boys are causing a stir wherever they roam.

DRAW are without a doubt one of the most exciting down & dirty rock n' roll bands to emerge on the New England music scene in a while. With the release of their newest EP, Lessons Well Learned, they have quickly become a force to be reckoned with. Their single “Bomb in the Backseat” recently hit #2 on Amazon’s Hottest New Release in Classic Rock, and it was Radio 104.1 of Hartford’s most requested song of the week for 4/29. Not bad for a local band from Springfield, MA.

These guys sense that there is a lack of rock n’ roll in the current music scene and plan to do something about it. They created a concept EP that focuses on strong societal issues such as bullying, depression, technological dependence, greed, and gender roles. By weaving in these themes into their music, they have begun to attempt a revival in rock music that harkens back to the late 60’s and early 70’s.

“Rock n’ roll takes all the chances it needs in order to make a difference in this world. Icons such as Little Richard, Jimi Hendrix, The Stones, and GNR knew that in order to make a change, you have to be honest and sincere with your message to the world. That’s what we are doing right now. Rock n’ roll changed my life and it has molded me into the person I am. It’s lying dormant somewhere in society and needs a jolt of energy into this world.” — Doug Ratner
