Rusholme Ruffians is a Jacksonville, FL group that found its start as a Smiths/Morrissey Tribute act. In short time, the group became known for its dynamic live show and preference for the louder, more abrasive side of the Smiths and Morrissey catalogs. After a year's worth successful shows throughout the state of Florida, the Ruffians found it was time to retire the tribute shows in favor of exploring new realms in the world of music.
The influence of the iconic alternative legends can still be heard in music created by Rusholme Ruffians, but styles ranging from punk, indie, new wave, progressive rock, and avant garde also make up a significant part of the band's DNA. If you plan on attending a Rusholme Ruffians show, do not expect a piano recital or shoegaze noise fest. They are not afraid to get their hands dirty, so show up ready to throw down with one of Jacksonville's most in-your-face quartets.
