Anthony Ruptak & his midnight friends are a five piece band from Denver, Co. They play original indie folk music that draws the listener in with interesting lyrics and exciting musicianship. The band started when Anthony Ruptak (guitar/vocals) met Jeb Draper (guitar/vocals) while playing open mics in Denver. They say that Denver has a great music scene where musicians are not in competition, rather they tend to help each other. As a result, the two started collaborating and found they had a lot in common musically. They fill out the mostly acoustic band with bass, drums and violin.
