The Rumblejetts have provided the Kansas City area with high-quality, high-octane rockabilly for over a decade now, and the group shows no signs of stopping. Their live shows are a guaranteed good time, with a mix of classic Sun Records covers, as well as the group's originals, which blend into the set so well as to be indistinguishable from songs written half a century prior.
Oh, and their fliers are always stellar. Usually designed by drummer Jud Kite's Killer Kite Productions, they are by far the most professional fliers you will ever see in the Kansas City area. Much like the poster you see to your left, most of Kite's work wouldn't look out of place hanging in the garage of a filling station somewhere. They're always wholesome, but with a hint of hot rod racer edge.
The Rumblejetts' new CD is called Summertime Apples, and is the band's third full-length (in addition to Roostina and Cool Down, Baby, they've also released the Branded EP). You'll be able to grab it when they have the CD release party for the record at Knucklehead's on Saturday, November 21.
You might also want to give the guys a hug. They'd made it to the second round of CMT's Music City Madness competition, but didn't make it past that to the final sixteen.
