About The Timber Rattlers
The Timber Rattlers are an energetic bluegrass band from Missoula, MT. They pull inspiration from their traditional roots, but continue to push their boundaries in the realm of acoustic music.
Each member has spent extensive time touring and in the studio. From the west coast to parts of Europe.
– Jamie Drysdale –
A class act guitarist with on-point bluegrass runs. Naturally entertaining the crowd with his quick, witty humor. He is always writing unique and ear-catching originals. Also known for his touring/songwriting with the Jackson Hole band “The Random Canyon Growlers”
– Jesse Brown –
A violinist who has genre hopped many bands and instruments. He is known for his years spent with “The Lil’ Smokies” both touring and writing music. You can also catch him playing with legendary Montana band “Mission Mountain Wood Band”.
– Dave McMeekin –
Guitar plater turned banjo player who finally settled on the mandolin. He writes tunes the way they oughta be written with three chords, three verses and one chorus. Bringing in that high tenor harmony that every bluegrass song needs!
– Dillon Johns –
A graduate of the music program at The University of Montana. He now teaches elementary school music, passing on his extensive knowledge of music to the next generation. You may have heard doghouse bass, but you haven’t heard it like this! One thing you’ll get a Timber show is proper dose of delicious bass solos.
– Caleb Dostal –
A prodigy in the field of contemporary banjo. Caleb has been playing since he was 11. He first heard the banjo on some old CD’s around the house and fell in love with the sound, and from then on has had an almost inhuman drive to improve his ability and discover more of the possibilities that the banjo holds.
