The Rusted buckle Band / Bio

At the early age of 9 yrs. old Don knew exactly what he wanted to do in life and that was play music. Since those early days, he has performed on several stages. From his humble beginnings playing fiddle in the 4th grade to his AWESOME guitar picking today. He has performed for as little as 20 people to over 3,000 over the course of his musical career. When asked about him, folks have said he has an extremely great stage presence and loves the crowd.
Bob Beck is the band's lead guitarist. Bob has toured all over the country and is also known as the "hippie" of the group. Billy Sloan is know as the human metronome and he is one of the finest drummers we have had. He can keep perfect time...all the time. Clyde Jones has a very important role in the band. He plays the pedal steel like no one else and brings the music to life with his talent. Rusted Buckle is very fortunate to have him on board. Dan Rausch plays bass guitar for RB and has earned his spot with the band as well.
