      Some technical difficulty, audio was fixed the second half. I still thought it was a treat, first time with concert windows. Thanks

      They were fun and engaging and had an interesting variety of music. Being able to watch them from home was a bonus as we were unable to attend in person. A few friends watched with us including a professional musician who enjoyed the show immensely, listens often to their Red Light CD, and expressed what talented musicians they all are. The interaction and sharing with the crowd was a bonus. One suggestion: Include Jenny and Clea in sharing a little of their background or interesting info about them. Looking forward to Rattletrap Ruckus's next CD!

Rattletrap Ruckus is a rollicking four-piece instrumental band from Bellingham, WA. We play fiddle tunes, ragtime, tango, paso dobles, various breeds of waltz, klezmer, norteño, polkas, and oh so much more.

"Rattletrap Ruckus is the perfect metaphorical band name for this outfit – a bone-shaking jalopy transporting a boisterous rumpus riot through European streets, Jewish strongholds, dusty Spanish courts, and Argentinian avenues. But don’t let the free-for-all circus fool you. These are seriously mature players offering a cavalcade of melodic choreography ample enough to pin your ears back. Because of their one-of-a-kind orchestration (button accordion, tenor banjo, cello, and “laundrophone” bass), it’s tempting to slot them as a novelty band, except their superb musicianship and exquisite arrangements trump any such casual conclusion. You’ll often hear the cello and bass doubling each other, an octave apart (taking a page from the Mariachi handbook), urging the banjo and accordion to dazzling and inspired heights. We’re in an age when everyone’s doing everything that’s ever been done. But nobody sounds like Rattletrap Ruckus."
-- Peter McCracken, director of Voice Works and Fiddle Tunes
