“Johnny Cash and Angus Young.  Waylon Jennings and Jimmy Page.”

Ryan Chrys & The Rough Cuts bring forth new energy to music fans who love the heroes and outlaws of old. Influenced by the songs and personalities of legends like Waylon and Willie, they drive their sound with blazing guitars and a rock n roll attitude.  The band pays respect to classic styles, but anyone can tell from their overdriven sound that they’re far from traditionalists. Recommended for lovers of both classic country and 70’s rock n roll.

Recent highlights include direct support for Shooter Jennings, Blackberry Smoke,  The Marshall Tucker BandShakey GravesJunior BrownCody Canada & The DepartedCash’d OutThe Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn BandSunny Sweeney and more.
