At the center of Hot Buttered Rum is the enduring camaraderie of five best friends. The band was conceived on a High Sierra backpacking trip of high school and college buddies. What was dreamed up on mountaintops and around campfires has found its way into the hearts, minds, and bodies of thousands.
Hot Buttered Rum’s years of touring have given the band the chance
to work and play with a wide cross-section of musicians, people
like Phil Lesh, Chris Thile, Brett Dennen, and Robert Earl Keen.
Seasoned veteran Steve Berlin (Los Lobos), acoustic guru Mike
Marshall, and left-coast rocker Tim Bluhm (Mother Hips, Nicki Bluhm) have all produced studio albums for the band. Each guided HBR towards the next step in its evolution. It’s a sound that’s as tough to describe as it is easy to love, and it has found its way to the most prestigious pop, folk, and bluegrass stages in the country: Telluride, Newport, Bonnaroo, Strawberry, Hardly Strictly, Kate Wolf, Horning’s Hideout, String Summit, Grey Fox, All Good, High Sierra, Wakarusa, and many more.
