The Guessing Game, Seattle’s (and arguably the States’) latest rising rock band, will kick play some intimate exclusive dates in its hometown of Seattle before heading down to the Guitars Under The Stars festival in Lebanon, OR. From there, they will embark on a slew of Southern California dates including Hollywood’s Sunset Strip House Of Blues. More dates to be added in the next few weeks.


Holy CrowThe Guessing Game has a knack for blending the energy of more traditional pure rock with great pop hooks, spiked with hair-raising guitar solos, so when Holy Crow was released on April 15 via Guessing Game Music, it became an immediate must-have for playlists everywhere.


Formed in the summer of 2013, The Guessing Game, is the brain child of Jeff Rouse, long time bassist of Duff McKagan’s Loaded. “In the summer of 2013, I found myself with some much needed time on my hands. I knew it was time to find the right people to finally bring these songs I had been writing to life. Having spent the last 14 or so years writing, recording and touring in Loaded, it was time for me to get the ‘other’ songs I had been working on out of my head, onto tape, and see what happens.”

Seeking out long time Seattle rock luminaries Kathy Moore (Brad, Satchel) Gary Westlake (Peter Frampton, Flight To Mars) Keith Ash (Star Anna) and Shawn Zellar (Redneck Girlfriend), Rouse knew that he had brought together a group who was very something  special :  “They all breathed life and beauty into the songs and it was magnificent.”
