Playing the Whitaker Music Festival June 20th
The Rockhouse Ramblers Background Info
“The Rockhouse Ramblers play old-school country in all of its variations as well as originals written by the band. The group consists of Dade Farrar, John Horton, Gary Hunt, Danny Kathriner and Kip Loui.” (via The Rockhouse Ramblers’ Facebook Page)
“Fronted by Kip Loui and driven by the guitars of Gary Hunt and John Horton, this quartet knows a full range of ’40s, ’50s and ’60s honky-tonk classics, from the hits to such obscure gems as a Johnny Bush jolt of heartache called “What a Way to Live.” No housewife country or freeze-dried Garth Brooks horseshit from these guys.
And none of this homage crap that makes you feel as if you’re in a mausoleum instead of a juke joint. These boys play it right but make the music their own — shuffle beat, lost love, Hunt’s tasty if occasional steel work and the dead-on George Jones sliding vocals of bassist Dade Farrar.” (via riverfrontimes.com)
The Rockhouse Ramblers are a Country band from the St. Louis area. In 2005 the band split up – kind of. Though they weren’t officially a “thing” anymore, they all remained on good terms with each other and continued to grace ears. And now, apparently, the band has gotten back together, if even temporarily, to remind people how awesome they are.
Now, the problem. I haven’t been able to find a way to share any of their music like I have gotten so spoiled in being able to do with other bands. You may have noticed the 40 second video clip, but that was all I could find of The Rockhouse Ramblers. I was able to find quite a few videos of their side-projects, however. I will continue to look for ways to share the music, but until then, you’ll have to take my word for it, these guys are good.
