Mid-Western Honky-Rock...

Rockabilly of the 50's, Classic Country of the 60's, Outlaw Country of the 70's, Americana of the 80's....these are the source of today's American roots music. It's the story of working people. It comes from the backroad Honky Tonks, downtown dance halls and small town bars. We call it Mid-Western Honky-Rock and the Rat Rod Kings are self-proclaimed rulers of Mid-Western-Honky-Rock with our original songs like Cold Beer and Outlaw Way that have all the makings of Country-Western classics, as well as 30 Days in Abeliene and Old River which are new takes on the classic Southern-Rock genre. Just like the name implies, the Rat Rod Kings take the best of their diverse musical influences and weld them all together to work like a well-oiled, hopped-up, musical machine. Look for them to roll into a music venue near you.

The Rat Rod Kings are the latest musical element to come out of the underground St. Louis music scene. Writing and playing their own songs with heavy musical influences of Outlaw Country classic legends like Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, and Willie Nelson with some boys from Bakersfield like Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, and Dwight Yoakam while throwing in a mix of those artist covers to make for a great night of entertainment.
