The Rafter Bats were a five-piece band based in Southern Connecticut. Using the traditional sounds
of bluegrass as a foundation, they drew on their diverse musical backgrounds to create a truly unique
sound of their own. Whether playing to a crowd of thousands or to a small intimate gathering, they had
the ability to get people on their feet dancing or leave them crying in their beer. It was virtually impossible
not to tap your foot or sing along while the guys were on stage. The Rafter Bats played both electric and
acoustic instruments, including mandolin, dobro, banjo, guitar, bass and drums. The Rafter Bats
repertoire consisted of original material, traditional favorites, and well-known covers.
