We had a great time at both the Federal Bar in NoHo and Lido Live in Newport Beach last month. Great to make new friends and reconnect with old ones.  Your continued support makes it worth all of our hard work and we truly appreciate it.


First person who answers this question correctly wins a pair of tickets on Rio’s guest list for Romano’s this month.  

1.  What is the song AND artist name?
2.  The answer must be included as a comment under the post from today entitled “August 2015 Rio News” on the Rio – a Tribute to Duran Duran Facebook page. 

SoCal Gigs and Beyond:

Riverside – Saturday, August 22, 2015, Romano’s Concert Lounge
Scottsdale, AZ – Fri/Sat, September 18-19, 2015, Casino Arizona
Seattle-Area – Saturday January 30, 2016, Point Casinov


We want to extend our deepest sympathy to our friends in Blasphemous Rumours (Andy, Jake, and Justin).  They recently lost a former bandmate to cancer, the soulful and talented, Denny Rambo. Rio shared the stage with Denny and BR on several occasions and it was always a pleasure.  RIP Denny.

Keep in Touch!

Watch our website and Facebook fan page for upcoming shows and original Duran Duran-related content like the old school DD meme above.

Thank you for your continued support, it means so much to us, like a birthday or a pretty view!!
