A foot stompin' mix of outlaw country meets delta blues”

The Backwater Ramblers

Grab your moonshine, sit back on your front porch rocker and let The Backwater Ramblers weave a patchwork of rustic sounds with a modern flair. They will take you on a journey through the Heartland, from the Delta to the Bayou and everywhere in between. The Backwater Ramblers play original songs with soulful vocals, wailing harmonica, twangy blues guitar tones and a rock solid rhythm section that harken back to a time when the juke joints were covered in sawdust. So keep the whiskey flowing, the boots scootin’ and share that tear in your beer with The Backwater Ramblers. 

Sample tracks

You may not associate the East Bay with the terms “outlaw country,” “roots,” or country music in general. But The Backwater Ramblers aren’t phased by the unique place they hold in the Bay Area music landscape. They’ll swing from blues to…well, swing music…to honky tonk country like it’s nothing."”
