The RFD Boys "The house band of
Michigan bluegrass"

The RFD Boys have been delighting Ann Arbor audiences since 1969 with their fabulous musicianship and sly, exquisitely timed between-song humor. With an appearance on the cover of Bluegrass Unlimited, with songs recorded by the likes of the Country Gentlemen, and with performances alongside bluegrass greats like Bill Monroe and Ralph Stanley, the RFD Boys are a part of America's bluegrass tradition. One of southeastern Michigan's most durable musical ensembles, they're very much a local tradition, too.

Our lives are sadder now but on we go with his blessing. We miss our founder and best friend. On February 28, 2012, Richard passed away after a difficult battle with cancer at his beloved Ann Arbor Township farm. Read his obituary here.
