Music has always been a large part of my life and

believe me The King (Singing Steve Johnson) and

the Rusty Rockers are top drawer.  They will have you on the dance floor or tapping your feet.  Don't miss a chance and yes we need more music in 2021 and beyond...Rock on!

Hello Rusty Rockers,

My family and I stayed at The Evergreen Lodge over the 4th of July in Yosemite and we loved your music and performance! You guys were terrific!

We hope to see you play again sometime soon.

Best Regards,

Hi Steve,

Those pictures you sent were great, thank you for sending them along. It

really looked like everyone was enjoying themselves! I've heard great things

about your performance from employees as well. I'm so glad we were able to

get you up this year and hope we can continue working together in the

future. This is my first day back in the office so I only just now got your

mug. That was incredibly thoughtful and I wanted to say thank you! You all

have a great rest of the year and hopefully we can get something worked out

for next year too. Until then!

Kind regards,

Brittany Smith

Gwen Clayton's post:

Gwen Clayton‎ to The Rusty Rockers · I have a story I want to share with you. Last night, I attended a private party where The Rusty Rockers were playing. I was part of a group of women who were da...ncing in front of the stage. One of the women - I forgot her name and had never met her before - had tears in her eyes and started telling me that she had just been diagnosed with cancer. So I grabbed her hand and started dancing with her. She was smiles and tears the whole time (sorry, I don't remember which song). When the song ended, she leaned into my ear and said, "This was better than therapy."Just wanted you to know that your music brought a little bit of peace to woman who was just starting her cancer journey.

Suzanne PonsanoWe made a great team! If anyone needs a great band look no further than the Rusty Rockers, they are anything but Rusty!
