Biography

Which one is Rufus? Well, neither. Rufus Huff, a four piece band, named after two obscure bluesmen, Whistlin’ Rufus and Luther Huff. An eclectic mix of rock, funk, blues, boogie and “Dixie” through a stack of Marshall amps.

A distinctive sound…that which could be heard for miles around. Driving beat grinding forth from the shadowy shack in the Metcalfe County holler, deep in the clay muddy, Kentucky Bluegrass covered land. Music pealed out in deafening decibels, which made the coon dogs howl, with delight of course, but not so loud that the amazing soulfulness wasn’t painfully obvious.

“What or who is making that racket that won’t leave my mind?” They told me, “They call themselves Rufus Huff, but nobody knows for shure what’s happenin’ in that holler, too scared to go!” I had to see and hear for myself, so I struck out asking, “Am I gonna get my ass shot down there?” As I made my way through this crazy maze of trees, I began to hear the rock/soul/funk sound echoing with that distinctive Marshall growl.

After a few more leaps and a creek to cross, there it was, a shack to put every movie image of the perfect broken-down Kentucky hillbilly palace to shame! The front porch was adorned with a couch and an appliance resembling a fridge, but too mold-covered to tell. Wood-burning smoke curling from the chimney, and the familiar vintage tone rumbling from a fuzzed out bass and throaty drum beat, enticed me to take a peek inside.
