Imitated But Never Duplicated The Burnt River band has been playing non-stop since it's first gig on New Years Eve 1976.This year marks our 40 year anniversary. Starting out like any other blues band playing neighborhood bars, being into Harley's as well as the blues, they developed a party hard, house rockin' style of boogie music. As the word started to get around, so did the band. It's taken years of dedication, and a genuine desire to boogie, and tens of thousands of miles. Burnt River has carved out it's own circuit.
While holding down day jobs, they have managed to play from Boston to San Francisco and Canada to Ft. Lauderdale.Although the majority of the shows were motorcycle events in years past such as the Buffalo Chip at Sturgis Rally in South Dakota (20 years) and one of the house bands at Pub 44 in Daytona Beach for Bike Week (18 years) We have in recent years cut back on the travel. We still play a fairamount of motorcycle events. We have also become comfortable with the boating community at places like The Casino and West Bay Inn at Kelley's Island Ohio, and Whiskey Island, as well as many Rock clubs and private parties in Cleveland area.
The Burnt River Band in 2016 and Beyond The Burnt River Band has played the Abate State conventions for New York, Ohio, Iowa, Pennsylvania, in Canada for the Brotherhood of Toronto (11 years), the Louie Run (all of them), Viet Nam Vets M.C. parties, and countless local, regional, national and international, motorcycle club parties, swap meets, BBQ's, weddings Bike shows, and Easy Rider rodeos, including the nationals in Ventura California.
