A little something about us

Formed in 2015 the Rhythm Bones are all veteran musicians playing a blend of original and cover material very much steeped in the blues and funk that has always informed their music. It is at times rocking at other times bluesy and soulful.    If you come, come to dance, come to have a good time and a few laughs.

The band puts on energetic and engaging performances and has already made noise at venues around the Cape Fear region.  Check out the Calendar
