The Hot Buttered Rum Band is my newest favorite band! They are just amazing and if you have ever seen them, you know what I am talking about. They are a bluegrass band from San Francisco who formed on a month long back country trip along the John Muir Trail in the High Sierra of California with guitars, banjos and mandolins strapped to our backpacks. HBR helped promote the bio fuel renaissance, touring the country on recycled vegetable oil and bio diesel as early as 2003. By reducing their carbon-footprint, selling sustainably-sourced merchandise, and educating and inspiring others to live in sustainable ways, they continue to promote awareness of environmental issues and the responsibility to pass on a habitable planet for the generations to come. HBR is determined to make positive environmental, social, and political change through music, education, and outreach.
HBR members include Bryan Horne, Nat Keefe, Zachary Matthews, Aaron Redner, and Erik Yates. Together they make fun and inspiring music that keeps me coming back for more. If you haven't heard their music yet, I would highly recommend checking them out!
