Rusty Griswolds

Rhinos always offers up the best in live bands. They have heavy metal, oldies and everything in between. They even have national acts from time to time.
Lately two of the most popular bands are both from the West side. The Menus and The Rusty Griswolds. Both these bands have been consistent crowd pleasers since the day they graced the stage. In fact they bring in some of the best crowds at both Rhinos locations.There’s a lot of good West side talent out there and finally all of us Eastsiders are getting to see them. I know my days of trekking over to the Blue Note have long passed but I still love to hear my favorite acts from the West side.
Six seriously talented musicians make up the band; Steve Frisch: Sax/Keyboards/Vocals, Ken Fullan: Bass, Eric Schueler, vocals/guitar/trumpet, John Schutte: keyboards/vocals, Richie Terbush: guitar/vocals and Greg Tulley: drums.
Together they take the 80’s pop set list they play and elevate it to a new energy that would rival the original artists. Artist like The Beastie Boys, The Cars, Cheap Trick, The Clash and many more. It takes more than music to create a great show... it takes energetic showmanship. The Rusty Griswolds don’t let you down. The show is always fresh and fun. The front man (Richie Terbush) is a wild man with a mic, it’s amazing he can focus on all that mayhem and still simultaneously play the six string.
Standing up front right beside Richie is guitarist Eric Schueler and bassist Ken Fullan. The trio treats the crowd to their brand of off the wall antics not to mention some sweet string playing Keyboardist Steve Frisch has his playground set up along side the drum kit. He needs a lot of room to move around in. He’s got several instruments he switches up and thoroughly enjoys playing them all. The crowd enjoys it too, he’s also wild and wacky and when he’s jammin’ he really works up a sweat.
Over on the other side of the stage is fellow keyboardist John Schutte. John sings on many songs and keeps his keyboard singing too. The two together really give the band that “big” sound they’re famous for.
Greg Tulley works up more sweat then any of them. It’s no wonder why, short breaks and packed set lists keep this drummer’s drumskins hot. He’s in no need of any cardio workouts for the week I’m certain. All together it’s one class act of a show (even if it is named after a character in a National Lampoon Movie). If you want to get out and dance until you just can’t dance no more get out to the November Rhinos show.
