Brand Spotlight: Kickstart Rumble

KICKSTART RUMBLE was born in the late summer of 2009 when Junior Douglas answered an ad that Michael Paul had been running off and on for about two years, looking for an 'upright bass player into rockabilly music.' This early line up featured Jim Savo on drums, who also came up with the bands name, Kickstart Rumble. The first KsR show was at Merlins (now defunct) on Elmwood Ave. in Buffalo, NY and the band played covers of some of their favorite artists including Elvis, The Stray Cats, Eddie Cochran, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis.
