About The Rayo Brothers:

Daniel and Jesse Reaux began performing as The Rayo Brothers at a songwriter competition in their home town of Lafayette, Louisiana. Joined by bandmates Lance Kelehan and Jordan Ardoin, the brothers present "honest and insightful" songwriting against a backdrop of "impassioned folk rock and modern alt-country with majestic, sweeping arrangements" (Offbeat Magazine). Featuring sibling harmonies and a variety of instrumentation, they put on a rollicking show that flows from raucous foot-stompers to intimate ballads and everywhere in between. The band has shared the stage with other notable performers such as Leftover Salmon, Poguetry in Motion, Mike and the Moonpies, Lost Bayou Ramblers, Wood and Wire, Scott Mulvahill, and Dylan Leblanc.


The Rayo Brothers’ latest album “Victim & Villain” was recorded at Dockside Studio with Grammy-winning engineer Tony Daigle and Grammy-winning producer Louis Michot (of Lost Bayou Ramblers) and released in 2019 on Nouveau Electric Records. Glide Magazine says "Victim & Villain" is "one of the most exciting country music releases so far this year."
