Seattle tastemaker radio station KEXP, in a recent review of Dancing On The Gallows said, “Rose’s Pawn Shop is as close to authentic bluegrass roots as you can get from an L.A. band. This is a compliment, not a bash…Rose’s Pawn Shop makes a statement with their music. Life is hard and we’re gonna sing about it and get over it. Sometimes it's upbeat, sometimes it's slow and sorrowful. Regardless, they know their roots and that is remarkably bold.”

Rose’s Pawn Shop is a tornado of Appalachian bluegrass, alt-country, rock, folk, Celtic, punk and kitchen sink, drawing in not only the attention of critics and fans but other musicians as well. Over the years, Rose's Pawn Shop has played with a diverse roster of bands including Junior Brown, Ghostland Observatory, Blues Traveler and DeVotchka. Jack White hand-picked them to open for The Raconteurs.

Founded in 2006, within a year's time Rose's Pawn Shop had released their debut CD The Arsonist, won the Best Band in the West title in the Billboard Magazine/Disc Makers Independent World Series, and were named Amoeba Records' Homegrown Artist of the Month.

Rose’s Pawn Shop is: Paul Givant (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, percussion ), John Kraus (banjo, electric guitar, vocals), Tim Week (fiddle, mandolin, vocals), Stephen Andrews (upright bass) and Ulf Geist (drums).
