RPM originated in the town of Navarino Wisconsin in 1987. As young inexperienced musicians, they set out to a scene they knew little of, but found what it took to be successful in an area full of talented musicians. Their brand of party music was something people quickly became fond of and have been coming to see RPM for over 17 years. In those years, RPM has developed a very strong following of devoted and dedicated fans.

With the current line-up of Joe Perz(lead guitar, vocals), Don Dix(rhythm guitar, vocals), John Groff III(keyboards, organ, trumpet, vocals), Mark Budwit(drums, vocals) and Chris Okkerse(bass guitar, vocals) RPM performs a variety of music from rock to country, from U2 to Toby Keith and everything in between.
