  • This album, Rusty Ends Blues Band, featuring vocals, guitar and original songs by Louisville, Kentucky based Rusty Ends, was previously released in 1996 by Rollin’ & Tumblin’ Records, which folded shortly thereafter. Earwig Music Company is re-releasing this fun album which never got distribution the first time around.  All these years later, Rusty’s still on his crusade to illustrate the myriad connections between his favorite genres of blues, soul, jazz, western swing, rockabilly and a wee bit of jazz licks thrown in for good measure.

    “People going to the honky tonks and the juke joints, it’s the same kind of people. It’s the same kind of experiences. They’re wanting to do the same thing. They’re going there, they want to forget their troubles, have a good time.”

    That’s a guarantee anytime Rusty Ends hits the stage.
