Biography

Emerging onto the metro Detroit music scene in June, 1998, Rusty Lunchbox (RLBX) formed from the remnants of the four members earlier projects. Prior to the formation of RLBX, the two Dave’s (Fuller and Cheney) had played together for three years, while Tracy Jones and Steve "Guido" Johnson had been jamming since the sixth grade. It was this experience and familiarity that allowed them to move rapidly into live shows. After a mere two weeks of immersing themselves in rehearsal, RLBX was ready for Detroit’s highly competitive bar scene.

After booking their first bar on and off for roughly eighteen months, perfecting their own sound through cover songs; RLBX had reached a crossroads where their own originals would soon shine through. It was in January of 2000 that RLBX had fully become a part of Detroit Rock and Roll. Working with friend and song writer, K.C. Scott (Breaker, Breaker) they were beginning to write their best original songs, and had drawn a rather large following where ever they played throughout Detroit and the rest of Michigan.

Over the next six years, RLBX continued to play every weekend without flaw at various establishments throughout Michigan, while maintaining a commitment to perfecting their original music. Abandoning their first studio project before finding a more suitable environment, RLBX recorded & cut a three song demo and only 1 year later released their full-length debut album, "Step Inside" which was quickly a smash with the RLBX faithful! It was obvious from their first show following their CD release party that, RLBX's infectious songs contained memorable lyrics with catchy hooks; as a majority of the crowd began to sing alongside Fuller!

Currently ranked as the number one band in Detroit on BarStar.com, RLBX has picked up sponsorship by a couple other bar scene favorites, Jagermeister and Bud Light. While RLBX’s commitment to music and live shows has not budged, they primary focus has turned to all-original showcase shows. They have recently recorded a limited edition EP which flew from the shelves at every venue they have played. In between playing gigs, they’ve found time to work on their sophomore album, which is projected for release by January 2007. Be sure to check their calendar to find the next place you can catch this can’t miss show.

The Band has managed to stay one of the busiest bands in the Detroit area by booking Tuesday's and Wednesday's in addition to every Thursday through Saturday nearly a year in advance.
Playing local bars & Original show venues has helped RLBX win awards such as, Male Vocalist & Drummer of the Year in 2001 at the WCMAs or (Local Detroit Rock Awards), The Global Battle of the Bands (Midwest Regional Winners) and a U.S. National Finalist in 2006.
