The Red Stick Ramblers formed in Baton Rouge, LA in 1999 playing clubs and parties around LSU. They quickly became the favorite live act of the area, with college students and club-goers flocking to listen, but more importantly to dance, to the Ramblers' rockin' roots sound which consists of Cajun, country and blues done with their own inimitable style. The Ramblers soon began packing clubs and dancehalls in the neighboring hub of Lafayette, and attending local festivals such as Lafayette's Festival International de Louisiane and the world-renowned New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
The next few years found the band playing clubs and festivals throughout the south from Texas to Florida, up and down the East coast of the U.S., and in Eastern Canada and France. They also released their first two records, "The Red Stick Ramblers" and "Bring it on Down". Following the release of "Bring it on Down" the Ramblers' line up went through some changes with members Joel Savoy, Ricky Rees, and Josh Caffery leaving the band to pursue other careers. Founding members Linzay Young (lead vocals), Chas Justus (guitar) and Glenn Fields (drums) vowed not to break the bond they had forged over the years and recruited bassist Eric Frey, whom they met at a festival in his home state of Alabama, and veteran fiddler Kevin Wimmer of Balfa Toujours to continue the Rambler legacy. They have since recorded a third album, "Right Key, Wrong Keyhole" (recorded and produced by Dirk Powell), and toured extensively throughout the South and East and in parts of Canada, securing a place for themselves in the world of Americana and Roots music and wherever people hear their infectious and unforgettable blend of traditional and original music.The Ramblers are in the process of finishing up their 4th album, yet to be titled, the second with Dirk Powell, which they expect to be released in 2006.
