"Their music is down and dirty, steeped in the mud of the Mississippi delta and the Louisiana swamps, but also in the mud and grime of Woodstock and the mosh pit at an outdoor punk show." - Maine Today
TAKE A TRIP WITH MUDDY RUCKUS
AND THEIR NEW ALBUM VACATIONLAND
A collection of red hot tracks that blend psychedelic rock, punk blues and fiery lyrics into a sound that's uniquely Muddy Ruckus. Featuring tracks with legendary harmonicist James Montgomery and low-rock saxophonist Dana Colley of Morphine. READ MORE
Muddy Ruckus is a “darkly inventive” rock duo according to the New York Music Daily. Guitarist Ryan Flaherty and drummer Erika Stahl of Portland, Maine play a grungy style of railroad indie punk blues. This stripped-down power-duo blends rootsy guitar and edgy percussion on a suitcase drum kit, and is known for a full rock band sound.
Muddy Ruckus has toured extensively throughout the USA with renowned artists such as Vapors of Morphine, Jamestown Revival, Yonder Mountain String Band, James Montgomery, The Legendary Shack Shakers, Cracker, Entrain, Trombone Shorty, Greg Brown, Enter the Haggis, Rev. Peytons Big Damn Band, Elephant Revival, Daniel Champagne, Duke Robillard, Spirit Family Reunion, The Ghost of Paul Revere and more.
Now releasing their 4th album with several singles under their belt, Muddy Ruckus continues to tour extensively and has rocked many festival stages including Americanafest Nashville, Mile of Music Festival in Appleton WI, Strange Creek Music Fest in Greenfield, MA, Levitate Flannel Fest in Portland, ME, Musikfest PA, Festival at the Farm in Massachusetts and Arootsakoostic Music Festival in Maine, just to name a few.
Muddy Ruckus continues to evolve and accelerate into their music
from roots & blues to a hard driving mix of electric rock, psychedelic pop-punk, and grungy garage ballads, zapped with high voltage lyrics and haunting harmonies.
