The Randy Abel Stable（马厩乐队）是一支于2011年在北京成立的美式乡村摇滚乐队。乐队成员分别来自美国和中国，在组建“马厩”之前，都有着多年的演奏和创作经验，这使得马厩的音乐融合了多种元素 － 从酒吧乡谣，蓝草到布鲁斯，甚至朋克摇滚 － 也许从他们的音乐里，你能听到The Rolling Stones, Hank Williams，甚至Ramones对他们的影响。
马厩乐队曾经在2012和2013年两度被北京City Weekend杂志提名为“年度最佳乐队”，并曾参加过迷笛、杭盖、朱家角等多个具有影响力的音乐节。2013年，乐队出版了首张原创专辑《情况稳定 (Stable Condition) 》
The Randy Abel Stable (Simplified Chinese:马厩乐队 Pinyin: Mǎjiù Yuèduì) is an Americana or Alt-Country band from Beijing, China. The Stable combines honky tonk, country, bluegrass and blues to produce a unique sound that has been described as having "the realism and sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the imagery and lyricism of Hank Williams Sr. and the excitement and raw energy of the Ramones.”
Since bursting onto the Beijing music scene in 2011, The Stable has played at all major music venues and music festivals in Beijing and numerous shows throughout many other Chinese cities. The Stable has supported various international acts during their tours of China, including most recently, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Jorma Kaukonen during his 2012 China tour, Franz Nicolay of The Hold Steady, and Australian bluesman, Jeff Lang.
Critically acclaimed for their live shows, The Stable plays a variety of musical instruments which are native to the United States of America and are seldom seen in China (e.g. banjo, mandolin, dobro and harmonica). Drawing inspiration from a wide range of genres, a typical live performance by The Stable takes its predominantly Chinese audience through a musical journey of honky tonk, country, bluegrass and blues composed of original country ballads, crisp honky tonk dance tunes, Mississippi Delta blues and traditional Rock N' Roll.
The Stable has been twice nominated as "Best Local Band of the Year" (in 2012 and 2013) by Beijing’s widely read “City Weekend Magazine.” The band was also cited as having given one of the "Most Memorable Performances of 2012" by influential China Music website BeijingDaze.
The band's debut album "Stable Condition" was released in June 2013 and is available for download/purchase on iTunes and Amazon as well as other online stores and is also available for streaming on Spotify and other various online streaming services.
