Neon Cactus

Rock, Pop, Folk and World

Neon Cactus was a country rock band that toured and recorded from the early 1990s until around 2002, rising into large venues and opening for major artists such as Merle Haggard and Neal McCoy. Based in central Pennsylvania, they were one of the few bands of that era to have made their music sound completely contemporary while still hinting at traditional country influences. Everyone in the band was multi-talented and skilled at their roles. Their sound was based around the Appalachian vocal style of Robin McNett--who came with a "country degree" as members of her family performed and recorded with Hank Williams, and she grew up with major country stars performing in an amphitheater situated in her backyard. Another notable member was "Easy" Mark Tomeo, formerly of the Grammy-nominated Rubber Rodeo. Drummer Bill Matlack, Jr. performs with The Cramer Brothers and has recorded with Johnny J Blair "Singer at Large," Davy Jones (Monkees), and other notables. Lead guitarist-fiddler-singer (some said was the band's shining star) Bill Engle still maintains a Neon Cactus archive.
