Blues With A Feeling
The Rusty Mike's are an eclectic group of musicians brought together by the passion for honoring and preserving the classic blues sound. We sound vintage because we are vintage; in the way we feel, the music we play, and the instruments we use.
We are former engineers, lawyers, and doctors who play for the sheer pleasure of music. Blues as it was meant to be. If your feeling sorry, come and listen to us, and you just might forget your troubles for a while or know that you are not alone.
The Rusty Mikes play in a style you would hear in a back alley cafe or a juke joint honoring such great musicians as Howlin' Wolf, Big Mamma Thornton, Little Walter, Muddy Waters, Walter Horton, James Cotton, Junior Wells, Jimmy Reed, B.B King, Slim Harpo, and Doc Watson.
