The Rowskabouts

At the risk of turning this into the Ozark Ska Page, let me mention one more important act from Joplin before we move on. The Rowskabouts were my personal favorite Ozark ska band from the 90’s. They had a goofy, upbeat, energetic style that was a blast to witness. My copy of their demo tape is way too worn out to be posted here, but luckily you can find most of the tracks from it streaming on their MySpace page. It’s worth checking out. They also have a reunion gig coming up in Joplin on Dec. 23rd, 2009. Those in the area should try to make it out.

I've had fun browsing through your blog . . . I keep getting disappointed that there are no KS bands featured. Not that this blog is for that, I guess I wish there was one! So I'm on the hunt to see if a KS counterpart exists. If you know of one, please point me in the right direction!

Let me know if you ever locate a KS punk blog-I'd like to see it too. I used to go to shows in Lawrence regularly-mostly at the old Outhouse club.

I loved, loved, loved The Rowskabouts and Big Bad Chubba! Went to too many shows to count
