The Wild Rumpus / Bio

The Wild Rumpus have spent the last three years introducing the
world to Appalachian Stompgrass through hundreds of live shows.
Take the mountains, all the influences, whether they be bluegrass,
blues, punk, folk or old country and roll them together and you get
Appalachian Stompgrass, a breed of music that isn’t hung up on a
certain label, but one that is forging it’s own brand. Appalachian
Stompgrass? Yes.
On the album “304” The Wild Rumpus didn’t worry about trying to
fit in. They may lead off with a high energy mountain romp (Anna
Lee), go to an old time bluegrass burner (Hang Man) follow that with
a reggae influenced mountain story (Logan County Line) and then
immediately give you a blues lament on regret (Shoulda Done Better)...
and that’s just the first few songs! The Wild Rumpus throw in
punk (I’m Not Here, Sins Of The Father) and some good old swing
for a change of pace (Revenue Man, Moonshine and Crosses). As
you’re listening you realize your feet have been dancing and after
all, ain’t that what it’s all about? Fun. Good songs. Good times.
That’s how The Rumpus thinks and they hope you do too! Enjoy!
