Blue Rags


Fusing vintage affects which range from ragtime to bluegrass to golf swing — and topping everything off with a wholesome dosage of punk attitude — the Blue Rags were formed in Statesville, NC in 1990 by vocalist/guitarist Scott Sharpe and vocalist/pianist Jake Hollifield, a set of local art college students. Stand-up bassist Expenses Reynolds signed on the year later, with his recommendation the group enlisted drummer Mike Rhodes; the 1996 addition of guitarist Aaron “Woody” Real wood finished the Blue Rags’ line-up, as well as the band’s boogie-woogie punk audio earned a significant cult following through the entire south because of a relentless touring plan and openign times for the like-minded Southern Tradition within the Skids and Squirrel Nut Zippers. Upon putting your signature on to Sub Pop, the Blue Rags released their 1997 debut LP Rag N Move; Eat at Joe’s adopted two years later on.
