The Rum Runnerz

The Rum Runnerz


Fun, groovin', hippie music with soul!


The Rum Runnerz are Mike Gallagher (Vocals/Guitar) and Ed McCartan (Guitar/Vocals). The Runnerz have been referred to as a “jam duo” performing their own inspired versions of classic tunes by artists such as

The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, The Band,
Van Morrison, The Allman Brothers, CSN
and others.

Long time friends, Mike and Ed started performing together as the Rum Runnerz in May 2007 and have performed to great reviews at a wide variety of Venues in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey and were featured on 90.3 FM's Artist Spotlight in August 2007. With their combination of musicianship, harmony and improvisation they bring a fun and creative twist to these great classic songs, as well as their original tunes.

Mike and Ed have been professional musicians for the past 50 years combined. Mike has worked with the Grateful Dead inspired “Me & My Uncle” band as well as a solo performer. Ed had worked primarily as a Jazz guitarist for the past 10 years including recording and performing with Gerald Veasley, Patti Austin, Relatively Speaking as well as many other notable artists.
