The Roues Brothers in Fallout: New Vegas

Regrettably it’s been a while since I’ve gone for a guitar lesson, but for three years I consistently studied with Billy Roues.

Billy’s very talented guitarist, and a great teacher who plays with a number of bands in as many styles. Rock & roll, cajun zydeco, rockabilly, country, blues, he plays it all with his own unique style.

I just learned that one of Billy’s bands, The Roues Brothers has a song featured in the hit video game, Fallout: New Vegas. Their song, I’m Movin’ Out can be heard in the game world on two different radio stations, Mojave Music Radio and Black Mountain Radio.

I haven’t played Fallout: New Vegas largely due to the time commitment that the game requires… It’s time I would rather spend writing or playing guitar these days. Nevertheless, it’s really fun to hear Billy’s music in such a great video game.

Here’s a video I recorded of Billy’s band the UpSouth Twisters performing Canned Heat’s hit song, Going Up the Country.
