Listen to this story

LIVINGSTON, Texas — The Escapees Club today announced a schedule of special events to take place during its Escapade national rally March 17 to 22 in Tucson.

This year’s featured entertainment includes The American Rogues and Redhead Express, two acts know for their talent as well as their captivating performances, the release noted.

The American Rogues will take the stage the evening of March 17 to share their musical skill, quick wit, compelling storytelling, and engaging stage show.

“The American Rogues have mastered the art of creating an immediate connection with audiences who can’t stay in their seats,” said Jean Mathes, Escapade co-director. “Our opening day is St. Patrick’s Day. When we heard American Rogues, we were very excited to book them.”

The following evening, Redhead Express promises to thrill attendees with their unique sound, she added.

“While many believe it is their near perfect three and four part sibling harmonies that truly makes them unique, after 10 years and over 3000 shows, their sound and stage presence is undeniable,” said Duane Mathes, Escapade co-director.

“Being fellow Alaskans, they pulled at our heartstrings. They’re very cool and their music will appeal to all ages, which is great for our variety of Escapade attendees,” he added.

As the 59th Escapade approaches, the event and the Escapees RV Club as a whole, has grown to accommodate the newest generations of RVers, the release noted.

Though the event has always held a focus on RV education through hosting seminars, RVers Boot Camp, and workshops, it now includes much more.

Several years ago, Kidscapade was added to the lineup of social and educational opportunities. Led by Fulltime Families, Kidscapade is a welcoming place for the youngest RVers to come together and learn, play, and share the unique lifestyle that comes with RVing.

In addition to Kidscapade, the Xscapers group of Escapees members has established a growing presence at Escapade, bringing with them new seminar topics, exciting social events, and a renewed focus on community-building, all aimed at working-aged RVers.

In addition to their gathering at Escapade, Xscapers meet up at Convergences and informal gatherings across North America throughout the year.

People can still register to attend this year’s Escapade by visiting or by calling 936.327.8873.
