Johnny Russler & the Beach Bum Band combine the tropical sounds of Caribbean rock, reggae, and calypso by pouring great original music along with songs by Jimmy Buffett, Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Paul Simon, Sublime, Jerry Jeff Walker, Zac Brown Band and many more into a musical blender to create a strong concoction direct from the lower latitudes!

From steel pans to blaring horns, strong percussion to driving bass to skanking guitars, the Beach Bum Band has a fun and danceable sound that appeals to all ages.

Johnny Russler & The Beach Bum Band has been throwing beach parties to enthusiastic crowds to venues from Nebraska to Rhode Island, from Minnesota to Key West, from community festivals to college campuses to Parrothead gatherings to Alpine Valley, Tweeter Center, and Target Center as the pre-show entertainment for Jimmy Buffett concerts, and even on stage several times with Buffett as his backup band.

The Beach Bum Band has been performing with Jimmy Buffett for his charity appearances in the Eastern U.S. as part of his Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant openings since 2003. The Beach Bums have performed favorites such as “Margaritaville”, “Five O?Clock Somewhere”, “Fins”, and “Volcano” on stage with Buffett himself. The Beach Bum Band has also headlined for other Cheeseburger in Paradise openings without Buffett, and so far The Beach Bum Band, Buffett and Cheeseburger in Paradise have collectively raised over $400,000 for charity at these events.

The Beach Bum Band has provided the pre-show entertainment for the Buffett tour from 2002 through 2006 at Alpine Valley in Wisconsin, Tweeter Center in Illinois, Target Center in Minneapolis and Wrigley Field in Chicago. The Beach Bums have also been invited for repeat appearances at Margaritaville in Key West.

The Beach Bum Band appeals to Parrotheads everywhere! The warm weather and island themes parallel much of the ambience that “Parrotheads” enjoy, but The Beach Bum Band is NOT a “Jimmy Buffett tribute band”. The song list will certainly include plenty of Buffett favorites as well as music from Bob Marley, Sublime, Jimmy Cliff, Paul Simon, Dick Dale, Jerry Jeff Walker and many others including some of The Beach Bums originals, offering variety and entertainment for everyone who enjoys warm weather.

Griffin Crowder is a Chicago based guitarist and singer. Setting himself apart with his raw acoustic roots, he brings a unique and eclectic song list to each show. Ranging from dance to hip hop, 60’s to today and everything in between to create a one of a kind musical experience. He is also known for being former front man of the popular country band Hey Cowboy and lead guitarist for experimental rock group She Killed In Ecstasy. See for yourself why a Griffin Crowder show is unlike any you’ve seen before.

Pass The Shine!!! – This High-Energy Country/Folk/Electro-Bluegrass Band brings the party in true Nashville Fashion each and every time! Summer Son features outstanding musicians from every corner of the country–from Pennsylvania to Hawaii, and Austin TX to Iowa and Chicago. With strong vocals, harmonizing backups, face-melting guitar solos, and smoking fiddle & banjo licks, they have gained overwhelming attention quickly and LOVE IT!!!

The band began in July of 2014 in the Western Suburbs of Chicago and has garnered a considerable following in less than a year. They have covered a lot of ground, playing not only in the Chicagoland area, but also Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Indiana, even Key West Florida and the heart of Country Music itself, Nashville. All of the hard work and travelling has paid off with opportunities to play great shows and festivals like Country Thunder, The Long Grove Strawberry Festival, The Forest Park Music Fest, Palatine’s Hometown Fest & Street Fest, as well as a feature spot in Key West’s world-renowned Fantasy Festival.

Promoting is taken seriously for each and every show, and the formula has proven to be successful. Every performance that Summer Son has played has been met with an immediate request for return shows from the venue–sometimes even right after sound check! Join the Fun and become a SonShiner today!
