What happens when four people with musical backgrounds in Rock n Roll, Blues, Rockabilly, R&B and Soul get together?
You get The Rattle Can Kings.
The RCK"s are not purists or retro but four talented musicians all answering a common call to music.
The RCK"s were started in the fall of 2008 when songwriter Ryan Propper and guitarist Marc Jost decided to form a band. In short time drummer Paul Lemmer was recruited after being deemed "a perfect fit". Solidifying the rhythm section, bass player Nicholas Hunt joined the group bringing his creativity and talent to the band thus setting it in motion.
In February of 2009 the hard work and enthusiasm of the band showed itself in the form of their first EP, Ready To Roll. Five original songs recorded at the famed Howl Street Rcordings. The following year saw the band honing it's skills at live shows with bands like The West Side Winders, Dan Whitaker and the Shinebenders, The Uptown Savages, The Rebuilts, Evenstar and many more.
In April of 2010 the band went on haitus but has now regrouped and is looking to play it's unique brand of Rock n Roll once again!
