Rusty Nail

Rusty Nail is a 7 piece band from St. Louis, Missouri that is composed of quite a diverse instrumentation and sound. 2-bands in one, our acoustic instruments alone (Mandolin, Dulcimer, Accordion, Banjo, Fiddle and Irish Flute/Tin Whistle give us the Folk inspired background and we mix that with a thunderous rhythm section of Bass and Drums and the dirty crunch of electric guitar that becomes a full force!

Rusty Nail formed in December 2005, as a 4 piece folk-act that had aspirations of a full rock show sound. As the search began for more musicians to complete our “big-band” experience, Rusty Nail continued writing and performing and building a regional following.

We crafted a large repertoire of original material and our interpretations of traditional and modern Irish Favorites. With the instrumentation, we are also able to play popular music in an “Irish Folky” kind of way. We have covered Bob Dylan and the Beatles as well as Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath.

We make amped up Irish Folk Rock, designed to be a great soundtrack for any listener's high energy party! This is real music played by real musicians and we are confident that there is something for everyone in our music. Our interpretations of traditional and modern Irish tunes are barroom favorites but we came to find that our hometown crowds love Heavy Metal with Violin and Flute!

We take our biggest influence from traditional Irish Folk legends, The Clancy Brothers and The Dubliners and mix it with the modern and punk rock excitement of The Pogues, The Tossers and Flogging Molly.

Our music adds our own stamp to the rich tradition of these artists that we love!
