Rum Drum Ramblers
Since forming in 2006, the Rum Drum Ramblers have been honing their original St Louis string band blues in barrooms, clubs, street corners, listening rooms, and festivals. Powerful dual lead vocals by Mat Wilson and Ryan Koenig and the ever stylish slap bass of Joey Glynn weave through a tapestry of syncopated resonator guitar, screaming harmonica, mandolin, fiddle, bones, and washboard. This trio of multi-instrumentalists have a refreshing groove that swings at a perfectly danceable pace.
The Rum Drum Ramblers have netted awards such as “Best Blues Band” and “Best Blues Album” over the years, but that only begins to scratch the surface of what the individuals have accomplished in the formative early years of their careers, including performing around the globe, contributing to Grammy nominated albums, and sharing the stage with many cherished roots music stalwarts. Some may remember Koenig and Glynn from their decade long run with Pokey LaFarge, which yielded memorable appearances on Late Night with David Letterman, The Conan O-Brien Show, The Marty Stuart Show, Prairie Home Companion, and guest features in Disney’s “The Lone Ranger”, Jack White’s “American Epic” mini-series, and Jack White’s “Blunderbuss”. One of the final proteges of Henry Townsend, guitarist Mat Wilson is a living link to the origins of St Louis blues.
Now as the re-energized Rum Drum Ramblers return to the studio to record their first album since 2011’s “Mean Scene”, their road-warrior chops shine through in their playing and their song writing glistens with the depth of experience. Their music both timeless and exciting, the band plays with sincerity and respect to the original blues forbearers.
