Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Welcome to the ever-unraveling, quickly evolving world of The Rigs. Longtime musical collaborators Eric Robertson, Duncan Wickel, Nicholas Falk (The Boston Boys), and Aaron Lipp (Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, Robert Randolph and the Family Band) have recently joined forces to form this new band. The seeds of this project, however, were planted years ago; whether it was in a van on tour or on a Brooklyn rooftop at the break of day, the only thing we know for sure is that music was being played.

The Rigs play ecstatically diverse music. Whether it’s country songs, fiddle tunes, Rock and Roll or greasy southern blues and funk, it’s all about that infectious energy that keeps listeners intrigued and on their toes. It isn’t uncommon for 'picking' to commence before and after live shows, and you are invited to come along as the music morphs from song to song, instrument to instrument, and street to stage. With four singers and multi-instrumentalists, The Rigs’ unique brand of Supercharged Roots Music boasts original songwriting woven with sharp-witted lyrics and danceable melodies that will keep you singing and shaking all night.

 In May 2015 The Rigs spent a week recording their full-length debut album, produced by Oliver Wood (The Wood Brothers) at Southern Ground Studios in Nashville, TN. We invite you to follow us through this exciting process, and can’t wait to share their new music with you later this year. In the meantime, you can always Dig The Rigs on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates, media, tour dates, etc.
