The Roustabouts are DC's Finest Blues-Fiddle Band!


Our long awaited album of original music, recorded with the DC Wammie award-winning Tommy Lepson, is due out soon. More details to come!


Founded in 2004, The Roustabouts offer roots-music lovers a fresh take on the blues, providing an exciting mix of original music and carefully selected covers, all with a dynamic lead fiddle. If you think you know the blues, think again—this band will not be stereotyped! About half of the songs you hear at our shows are original compositions, ranging from traditional blues to funk to good old rock-n-roll. Over the years there's been one prevailing constant: nobody leaves a show with The Roustabouts feeling unsatisfied. We give it our all, every time, and we aim to please... so come experience the sound that has kept this band in demand for more than ten years running. We hope to see you at our next show!
