Rumpke Mountain Boys
For over two decades, the Rumpke Mountain Boys have been taking the bluegrass world by storm.

With high-energy improvisational shows, you’re guaranteed to see some of the fastest picking in the game. This quartet is the life of the party, and their music has been described as a mixture of whiskey-spillin’ old-timey psychedelic folk music.
Despite their success, the Rumpke Mountain Boys are one of the most approachable groups in the music world. They’re known for their “campfire tours,” where they migrate from campsite to campsite, playing music and picking with their devoted followers until dawn. Each member is a talented songwriter and bandleader, so together they take old-time music to a new level with an unwaveringly original approach, leaving no genre untouched.
2023 is destined to be a pivotal year for the Rumpke Mountain Boys. With influences ranging from Jimmy Cliff, The Grateful Dead, and Tom Waits to traditional bluegrass legends like the Osborne Brothers and Stanley Brothers, this band is not your Grandfather’s bluegrass group. They’ve shared the stage with iconic artists such as Leftover Salmon, Tim O’Brien, Ralph Stanley, Keller Williams, Larry Keel Experience, and Del McCoury. Whether you’re a fan of bluegrass or not, the Rumpke Mountain Boys are sure to leave a lasting impression.
