Sam Ross


Rod Vedder


Playing a wide range of music from classic to modern rock to '90s R&B, Sam Ross and Rod Vedder bring an acoustic styling to plenty of favorites while also adding some extra flavor to make it interesting.

After being in a couple of bands during and just after college, they started playing acoustic shows together in March of 2009 and have slowly been adding to their musical repertoire, which is now up to well over 200 songs. It's not all your stereotypical acoustic stuff, however - it's far beyond the standard strums of "Wagon Wheel" and "Wonderwall" - they'll take on various one-hit wonders of the 80s and 90s, from Rick Springfield to Harvey Danger and everything in between!

Sam and Rod have been proud to play to support numerous charitable initiatives, including the 3rd & Goal Foundation, Walk for MS, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, The Nationwide Childrens' Hospital Columbus Marathon, Homes For Our Troops, Team Emily (supporting our friend Emily Hanscel after a traumatic brain injury following an accident), Autism Speaks and Help a Hero (supporting our troops). They are proud to have played alongside such talented musicians as Paramore, Eliot Lewis of Hall & Oates, Lovesick Radio, one7one, Introspect, Greg Hale Band, ...AS IS, Audio Graffiti, Bad Charlotte, and many others.

See you at the shows!
