Rumpke Mountain Boys at The Mousetrap

Rumpke Mountain Boys
https://rumpkemountainboys.com
https://facebook.com/RumpkeMountainBoys
Album “In Good Company” on Spotify: https://spoti.fi/2OwWOLl

The Rumpke Mountain Boys combine signature vocals, a unique command of string instruments (acoustic guitar, mandolin, upright bass and banjo) and dynamic special effects into a singular musical experience. An emotion filled musical stream of consciousness with no setlist, minimal structure, and intuitive improvisational flow. In this way, they summon the energy of the crowd as their guide in linking just the right music to precise moments in time.

Grateful Dead Hour host David Gans proclaimed, “One of the things I love about the Rumpke Mountain Boys is that there’s a fundamental honesty in their presentation. This is something they share with my other heroes, Donna the Buffalo and the Grateful Dead. They don’t make set lists ahead of time, they don’t rehearse their songs to a fare-thee-well– they perform in real time. All four of them write, which is very important, and they draw songs from a tremendous variety of sources… being a musician is a life-long learning experience, if you’re doing it right, and they are.”

Like playing around a campfire, the Boys take turns calling the next tune, distilling shows from a sea of infinite notes created from years of jamming. Drawing upon a growing catalog of originals and and an eclectic mix of covers, the Rumpke Mountain Boys blend music like a fine Irish whiskey– the result affectionately dubbed Trashgrass. The Boys titled their 2012 album release with the same name, followed by their 2013 release, Moon, which was recorded at the famed Royal Studios in Memphis followed by their current studio release, “High Time, Low Tide”. The band plans to release a double live album in 2018.

The Rumpke Mountain Boys have played festivals from coast to coast to ever growing audiences including Northwest String Summit, John Hartford Memorial Festival, Blue Ox, and Dark Star Orchestra’s own Dark Star Jubilee. They have played with artists such as Leftover Salmon, Yonder Mountain String Band, Dark Star Orchestra, Railroad Earth, Hot Tuna, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, Larry Keel Experience, Kitchen Dwellers, Peter Rowan, Tony Rice, Dave Bromberg, Del McCoury, Leon Russell, and Ralph Stanley all while continuously breaking new ground. All of this interaction and touring has the band firing on all cylinders. Now is the time to see the Rumpke Mountain Boys.

Support TBA!

RiFF RAFF aka Jody Highroller aka DALE DAN TONY an All American rapper who’s family heritage is of Swedish, German, Russian & Israeli origins was Born in Texas, known for his freestyle skills and creative word play. His natural wordsmith & poetic / visual creative depiction was so vastly different that in 2013 Super Producer Diplo, arguably the most popular producer icon of our time, signed RiFF RAFF to his record label “Mad Decent.” After he signed a deal with “Mad Decent” to release his first studio album titled ‘Neon Icon’ which was released in 2014. Neon Icon had the worldwide hit single ‘Tip Toein’ In My Jawdinz’ which went Gold selling & streaming over 500k copies along with Dolce & Gabbana then followed with DJ Mustard Produced track ‘How To Be The Man.” The album also featured artists such as Mac Miller, Childish Gambino, Mike Posner and many others. The album enjoyed enormous success.

In June 2015, he geared up for the release of his second studio album, ‘Peach Panther.’ Which featured the hit song ‘Carlos Slim,’ and songs featuring G-Eazy, Gucci Mane, Danny Brown. RiFF RAFF has continued to tour the world to sold out venues running and leaping on stage making music a sport, he took a few years off of music to gather his ideas. In Aptil of 2019 RiFF RAFF released his Official Sophomore album “PiNK PYTH?N” while teaming back up with Derek Allen his long time friend and producer who produced Neon Icon with mad decent & Diplo to restore that same High Quality Level Of Music. On the heels of “Pink Python” RiFF just released “Cranberry Vampire” which has production most notably from DJ Paul from three6 Mafia and DIPLO.
