Rusty established his name with the tremendous success of Rusty & the Dragstrip Trio. Releasing "Playing For You", and "I Ain't Ready", the band performed around the world including two headline performances at Viva Las Vegas. Wrapping up and moving on, Rusty continues his solo and band career today.

"Rusty ... his voice, eager, a tremor of red blooded excitement.. Mean, moody, dark and brooding – this is real rockin’ blues, this is indeed the Devil’s music, played by a real wild child... " Jerry Chatabox, The Rockabilly Rave
"Easily the stand out performance of the weekend, Rusty fed off the enthusiasm and energy of the crowd burning up the floor and stealing the hearts of us all with his amazing talent, unique style and voice of an angel... He had whipped the crowd into such a frenzy that they would not stop screaming for more until he played an extended set that ran overtime by half an hour – what a legend!" Sheri Bomb
"This second full length CD by Rusty and the Dragstrip Trio is as amazing as their first release in 2003. Old and authentic Sun sounds in a sparkling new jacket. Covers and originals alike, a feast for your ears. Rockabilly the way most of us like it best, with a touch of blues... What more can I say... two releases and two five-star ratings well deserved." The Black Cat
"This Rusty & The Dragstrip Trio debut album can be utterly enjoyed in either one of two ways. You can get on the dance floor and bop like wild, or you can sit back and relax and let the music tingle your ears and skin... Eyes closed, bass woofer on max output, neighbours banging on the walls, who gives a damn. This is rockabilly music the way it was meant to be, great live sound, superb vocals, sparkling guitar licks and groovy rhythms. These cats play the coolest and the hottest rockabilly music!" The Black Cat
"Their set was amazing! You could tell there were a lot of fans in the house, because it seemed like everyone knew all the words to every song. They did all of their “hits” like “I Ain't Ready”, “Mama She’s Red Hot”, and “Rock all Night”... I really dug it. We got to do a little bopping and a little jiving, and it was a blast."
