|"Them Raggedy Bones is poised (to) get their hand on the torch and carry it (outlaw country) further into the depths of Colorado's music scene's heart."
— Tim Wenger, Colorado Music Buzz Magazine
Them Raggedy Bones is a five piece outlaw country/folk/rock band featuring two guitars, bass guitar, lap steel/dobro, and drums. The band began in 2012, as an acoustic collaboration between songwriters Andy Matteo and Adam Frishman. The two found that their similar approaches to country, folk, and blues influenced songs, firmly grounded in the American roots tradition, formed the basis for a strong musical partnership. The addition of Adam’s long-time collaborator Kevin Joseph on bass guitar brought some improvisational flair to the group, in addition to filling out the low end. With Colorado native Luke Smith on drums, and recent Texas transplant Doug Clement on lap steel and dobro rounding out the sound, Them Raggedy Bones is equally comfortable playing outlaw country, blues, folk, rock & roll, or embarking on extended improvisational excursions.
At a Raggedy Bones show you might hear anything from Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson, to Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan, to The Band and The Grateful Dead. What you will hear is a great combination of down home, rootsy, originals and covers that will keep the toes tapping and the beer flowing.
