Album Notes
This album is dedicated to the memory of our good friend, Jeff "Mayhem" Thompson. The powerful tune, "The Warrior's Salute," is named in his honor. We'd like to thank everyone in the Rogues family for being so supportive through the good times and the bad... without you we are dust. We'd also like to thank all of our friends and family for the way they keep the faith, keep us sane, and keep us coming home. Likewise, meeting and befriending Frank Thompson and all of Mayhem's family has been the brightest part of a dark year. Finally, we'd like to thank Mayhem for showing us that heroes do indeed walk the Earth.

The Rogues would like to thank Al Cofrin, Klaus Weiland, Richard Kean, Jason Evert, Nick LaGrasta, Zack Goodrick, and Steve Ashley for their musical and creative contributions to this album. We would also like to thank Jack Westmoreland for the use of his many percussion instruments, Jeff Jack for the use of the small pipes, and Ken Knezzick for the doumbek. Thanks also to Andy Bradley, Tyson Sheth, and Sugarhill Recording Studios in Houston, TX, as well as Heritage Studios in Burlington, Ontaio.

Jeremy and E.J. would like to thank Mike Cusack, their piping instructor.

Special thanks to Sharon, Lauren, Leisa and Linda for putting up with us while making this album and keeping us sane through all the late hours. And, of course, thanks to Clarence the studio cat for assisting us on his fourth Rogues album.

The Rogues are fantastic!
The CD "Roguetrip" was wonderful. Loved listening to it.


What a wonderful collection of music!
We were so pleased with this album, we've already ordered some of the out-of-stock albums and will DEFINITELY keep ordering until we have them all. It's hard to express how much we liked RogueTrip. Bravo, Rogues!

mind-blowing fun
I love The Rogues. They were the band that taught me if you had pipes and drums, it wasn't just another bagpipe band. It was The Rogues. "RogueTrip" is the latest offering from this Grammy-Nominated Celtic music giant.

There are some semi-new faces on this new CD. Randy Wothke is still the mastermind behind the success of The Rogues, playing a variety of percussion with some delicately added keyboards in the mix. Nelson Stewart continues to front the band with this dynamic personality and bodhran playing. Though I didn't realize he could sing until I heard, "When Diana Fell". Jeremy Freeman is the newest face for me, but he is no amateur when it comes to rocking on the pipes.

EJ Jones is the newest member of The Rogues, but definitely no stranger to the band. He dominated the Celtic super group Clandestine with his amazing bagpipes and flute playing. I'm thrilled to see him find a new home with The Rogues. He's added bombarde to this mighty group with the Breton tune "An Dro", a remarkable addition to the musical variety that first drew me to this "pipe and drum" band in "5.0".

The new CD isn't a change of sound though. It's the solid evolution of a group that continues to grow from the traditional pipe sounds of "Bobby Cuthbertson" to the breathtaking celebration of the Celtic spirit found in their newest arrangement of "Bonny Portmore". I look forward to seeing the new incarnation perform live. After hearing the lead track off the album "Pressed for Time", I'm convinced that their live show is just as much mind-blowing fun.


LOVE THIS CD!! The Rogues are awsome!!
This was my first introduction to celtic music and I LOVE it!! Wonderful music and it always makes me smile to listen to it!! Can't wait to see them live next week! Keep up the wonderful job guys!! Long live the bagpipes!!


You must own!!!
This CD is awsome and very pleasureable to listen to. I loved "When Diana fell" With the music and words, love it. Now I own every Rogue Album and the DVD. Love it, love it, love it!!!!


Music that makes ya wanna YEEEEEEHAAWWW!!!
If yall enjoy highland bagpipes, yall will love this album! It's got great energy, and they do an awesome job of composition, especially with mixing in a little rythm and base and other non-traditional instruments- that's what I'm talkin' about, yall!


Great band on stage - love the music!
I heard many of the songs on this CD when The Rogues came to High Point, NC last month. That inspired me to buy this CD - I bought two copies actually (one for my brother and one for my boyfriend and me). The CD is awesome and has opened my eyes to the uniqueness and beauty of bagpipes mixed with other instruments. Thanks!


The Rogues creative talents soar to new heights!
LOVE IT! Original tunes from each of The Rogues showcase their incredible talents, and go in new and unexpected directions with amazing results! Plenty of the traditional sounds that we all love as well. This is a must have! Can't stop playing it.


Awesome tracks with some great pipe songs!

Interesting, very interesting
As a piper myself I really love the exquisit quality of the playing. The harmony is great and ALL the notes so crisp and clean. Selection I thought was good but not spectacular. I personally would have preferred mor updated pipe classics. One tune in particular had me understanding a little more the middle eastern origins of the bagpipes. Hope you guys record more.
