In April of 2015, four musicians met up at a jam session. Recognizing how they blended and jived, Jay Manke, Joe O’Malley, Dan Rainbolt, and Dave Kuenstler started something called The Rainbolt Mountain Project. Word caught on and bass player Marty Rice (yes, THE Marty Rice) joined the band.
As of late these guys have been getting asked to play at pubs and festivals throughout MN and WI. With great classic tunes and fun originals, RMP entertains like no other!!! Playing their own originals and classic Americana songs, they have developed into the Upper Midwest’s finest Bargrass band.
