Rebelle Road, is an all-female entertainment company dedicated to strengthening the California Country music community and for expanding the role for women in the Americana/roots music genre.
At Americanafest 2018 the 3 founders – KP Hawthorn, Adrienne Isom and Karen Rappaport McHugh, introduced themselves to the Americana community by presenting both a live roots music show and a separate panel on the legacy of the famed Palomino nightclub. This year, the women of Rebelle Road are back and are combining events to present a daylong celebration of The Palomino with “The Palomino Rides Again 70th Anniversary Celebration”.
Jim Lauderdale, Rosie Flores and James Intveld will headline the event. The 3 performers began their careers at The Palomino and were present at the reopening of the original venue in October 2018.

There will be other artist performances throughout the day along with a songwriter in the round complete with stories of the California Country scene and remembrances of the nightclub. Other highlights include a whiskey tasting and a slide show of the photos by Jasper Dailey through the decades of “The Pal”.
Rebelle Road is also announcing and will be premiering the trailer for a documentary that is in production- The Palomino Rides Again- co-directed by Adrienne Isom and James Intveld. Adrienne Isom, a founding member of Rebelle Road, is also a bass player in the band Nocona, and a professional photographer/videographer. Along with being a musician and performer, James Intveld is also an actor and experienced film director.
The Palomino Club of North Hollywood (1949-1995) was home to country stars throughout the decade, and incites nostalgia in the hearts of those who came out of the California scene to this day. Part of the mission of Rebelle Road is to preserve the rich history of California Country and to foster discussion about its importance to country and roots music worldwide.
