RUSTY TRAMP CD RELEASE PARTY!- UPDATED!!!

Hooligan’s 11/2/12 – A packed house was anxiously awaiting Polyram Recording Artist RUSTY TRAMP. The mood of the crowd was reminiscent of the old club days in Albuquerque NM. Happy, ready to have a good time, old friends glad to see each other.

 RUSTY TRAMP is comprised of Tommy Brown (vocals), Mike “Gutter” Garcia (bass/vocals), Thomas Milem (guitars/vocals), and Derrick Milem (drums/vocals). They bring forth straight up crowd pleasing Rock N’ Roll. After some kick ass music from openers

MICHAEL LEE OSTRANDER

VOICE OF DECEMBER

RUSTY TRAMP took the stage and totally owned it. They included the audience in their set, recognizing friends and family members, calling people up to the front. They were tight and on their game, we even got a treat of a cover of Drivin’ N Cryin’s “Fly Me Courageous” with an interlude of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” that included a theremin solo from Thomas Milem. All in all a great night of Rock N’ Roll for Rusty Tramp! Check out their facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/RustyTramp?fref=ts website: http://polyrammusic.com/rusty-tramp

This world class guitarist is also a friend of mine. Ostrander can hold his own with the best of the best. His shredding and playing style a stellar. His greatness in playing is the complete opposite to his mild mannered quiet demeanor. Do yourself a favor and check out this axeman extraordinaire!
