When we first opened up we immediately wanted to get some cafe style seating out front of our building, however there was a big problem – we weren’t even allowed to apply for the permit per city ordinance. PROBLEM!
SOLUTION? Change the law! With the help of Downtown Springfield, Inc, we presented an updated version of the sidewalk ordinance to the city that expanded the eligible businesses for cafe seating downtown. The amendment was co-sponsored by the mayor and enjoyed unanimous support, wow!
So of course once that was in the works, we built our own outdoor furniture and now it’s finally ready for the best people on earth, our customers!
Playing May 3rd, 8-11pm at Buzz Bomb!
Rock Bottom String Band is family! What began as four strangers with a shared love of music has become a nationally touring band run on D.I.Y. values and the community of friends we’ve created along the way. Our mission is to make every show more than spectator and performer– we want our audience to feel as much a part of the show as if they were on stage themselves. For RBSB music is about making connections and growing communities and we bring that passion to our performance every time we play. Born from backyard jams in 2013, we mix a multitude of styles to produce high energy tunes. Our many influences include bluegrass, folk, and americana flavored with punk, metal, and traditional roots. The diversity of our music enables us to play for many different groups of people in all sorts of venues. Whether it be at a family party, a dive bar, or on stage at festival, RBSB brings a rowdy good time!
