Rusticator: Two Music Teachers, a Brewer/Minister, and a Philanthropy Officer Pushing The Boundaries of Americana Music

Dave Michaels

Rusticator; the four-piece "Americana band with an acoustic spirt" have been sharpening their musical skills since their Local 518 debut in 2013.

Tony Califano (guitar/vocals), Derek Dobson (drums), Joe Gumpper (fiddle/vocals), and Jordan White (bass/vocals) have proven that you can turn your side hustle into something special. Releasing three full-length albums over the years, Rusticator has expanded their sonic palette outside the confines of acoustic instruments and classic keyboards to include bigger drums and electric instruments. The sound is gorgeous; the music soaring.

After a year of releasing virtual 45s, the band is poised to release a brand new EP of kaleidoscopic sound and style later this Spring or early Summer.

See Rusticator perform at Caffe Lena, Thursday, April 7th at 8pm. Get tickets HERE.
