Rust Belt is a southeastern Wisconsin roots rock band that formed in April of 2016. Long time veteran musicians Paul Aceto (Bass), Brandon Shilts (Guitar), Don Miller (Drums), and Kevin Schultz (Hammond organ) joined forces in creating a powerhouse of a band. With their unmistakable sound their songs paint a vivid picture of the times and culture that surrounds them.
Along with the ability to do a full night of original music, Rust Belt also covers bands and artists such as Ryan Adams, Jason Isbel, The Allman Brothers, Wide Spread Panic, Grateful Dead, Tom Petty, Paul Simon, Govt Mule, Bob Dylan, Manfred Mann, Jerry Garcia, The Band, The Monkeys and more
