Hot Buttered Rum


The Official Bluegrass Band of the 2014 World Champion San Francisco Giants

“Stunning instrumental and vocal virtuosity.” – Relix Magazine

Hot Buttered Rum is a postmodern string band from San Francisco that combines bluegrass, reggae, folk and jazz into a riveting blend of Americana. At the center of Hot Buttered Rum is the enduring camaraderie of five best friends. The band was conceived on a backpacking trip of high school and college buddies in the High Sierra. What was dreamed up on mountaintops and around campfires has found its way into the hearts, minds, and bodies of thousands. It’s a sound that’s as tough to describe as it is easy to love. The Hot Buttered Rum phenomenon has steadily expanded to include a rich tapestry of fans, friends and family reaching from coast to coast. The band is politically and socially active and performs regularly to benefit environmental causes. They are also great outdoorsmen and conservators of our forest lands, as well as proponents of the slow foods movement. Don’t miss Hot Buttered Rum as they tour in a city near you!
