New York City, New York, USA

Imagine Flatt & Scruggs, Monk, and Nashville Saxophone Icon Boots Randolph playing a midnight set at McSorley's Olde Ale House in NYC.
This is Critter Music: a quirky blend of Bluegrass, Traditional Jazz, and Americana Roots Music.

"Little Western Kansas in the Big Apple"


Ryan Anselmi grew up in a small town in Kansas where he was influenced by the Jayhawks (both the band and the KU basketball team), John Brown history, the civil war bullets he found in his backyard, creeks, sunflower fields, Dixieland, Bluegrass, and home-made moonshine.

Critter Music has been rattling around in Ryan's head since he can remember and with the help of five talented and humble musicians Ryan and the band Critter make music for dancing and good times.
