Landrush / Bio

Though grounded by such strong roots as friendship, family, and even marriage, Landrush is a musical group that comes together for the love of music – and it shows in the band’s harmonious sound. With a specialty in southern rock and country tunes, Landrush entertains with energy and passion, enjoying every moment on stage together.

Singers (and sisters) Betsy Ostrander and Katie Young grew up in a musical household singing two parts in the backseat of the car ever since they can remember. When Katie met Brooks Young in 2002, he won her over with his acoustic guitar and harmonica skills -- the two married in 2005. Drummer Bobby Hapgood has been inducted into the Kansas Music Hall of Fame with the long-running group, King Midas – and adds impressive drumstick acrobatics to every show. The talent of bassist Curt Bittner is only surpassed by his enthusiasm (as well as his ability to turn up the volume!). And the strong electric guitar of Steve Taylor creates the irresistible groove of all your favorite songs.

The band has come together for events such as Jazzoo, the De Soto Blues and BBQ Festival, and the Walnut Valley Music Festival, as well as numerous corporate and charity gigs, all the while coordinating the demanding work and family schedules of its members. Landrush has a wonderful following of friends, family, and fans – and looks forward to seeing you at their next event!
