The band marches on with their extensive touring schedule, adding West Coast dates in San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Ana and San Francisco–as well as adding some new European dates with Tomahawk. Their live shows continue to draw rave reviews including:

“While Rodriguez-Lopez may be happy to describe the act as ‘a four piece, very stripped down affair,’ the combination of his energetic, frenzied playing style coupled with Teri Gender Bender’s ferocious stage presence is nothing short of electrifying.”-METROMIX

“a hard-rocking group of vets ripping through songs while sounding as fresh as a gleaming spectrum of color over the bleak streets of Sarajevo.”-CHICAGO INNERVIEW

“Rodriguez-Lopez’s uncanny ability to mutate his flailing notes into luscious symphonies coupled with front-lady Teri Gender Bender’s ‘unique’ stage presence gives Bosnian Rainbows a certain grace on the front lines of the battle for the preservation of today’s music.”-LISTEN ASHEVILLE
