Saturday, November 30
Show | 9pm // Doors | 8pm

Rumpke Mountain Boys



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.”
