The Ragged Blade Band / Bio

We can bring it! From originals written yesterday to hit songs of the early 20th Century to what’s in between—first timers at a Ragged Blade Band show have come away thinking "what an amazing variety of tunes" or “I didn’t realize that old time music was so cool!” Because music history with the RBB is a barrelin’ good time!

Take a listen to St. Louis Blues, Memphis Blues, St. Louis Rag, and other hits from 100 or so years ago. Move up in time with songs such as Summertime and Miss Brown To You. Then hear some original tunes by bandleader Jerry Rabushka: Good Times Comin’ Round, Always Wrong, Can’t Sing Country With the State I’m In. We can kick it from jazz to blues to rock to country to emotional ballads and more—and we do it our own way.

Drop a line here at ReverbNation, or at raggedbladeband@yahoo.com. We’re looking to play around St. Louis and we’ll travel too! The band has been to Chicago, Des Moines and Iowa City, IA; Tulsa, Austin, Rochester and Duluth, MN; Rolla and Columbia, MO; Bloomington, IN, and more!
