About Rustic Moon

With his amazing Neil Young sound-a-like voice, Tom Schramm and his band of skilled musicians add a joyful energy to the emotion-filled essence and edge of Neil Youngs music.  Whether it’s the powerful ragged sound of "Rockin' in the Free World," or the raw exposed vocals of "Old Man," this show will resonate with Neil Young fans of any generation.

Formed in October 2019 in Lanesboro Minnesota, RUSTIC MOON received rave reviews following their first concert (December 2019) where they opened for nationally recognized "Free Fallin” Tom Petty tribute band to a nearly sold-out crowd.  The energy and excitement of the audience fueled aspirations to bring the show to new audiences, regionally, and beyond!

Band Bio's

Tom Schramm

Tom Schramm moved from Arizona to Minnesota in 2005, bringing his coffee shop-style vocals and guitar to the small touristy town of Lanesboro, where he hosted a long running open mic night. Singing lead and playing rhythm guitar, he has played in an Americana-style band, Tom Schramm and the LPs, since 2011.  Notably, Tom has traveled the world with his guitar in tow, playing gigs in New Zealand, Sri Lanka, and Mexico.  No matter where he plays, he hears, “You sound just like Neil Young,” leading him to form Rustic Moon – Neil Young Tribute Band.

“Doc Roc”

“Doc Roc” came up from Memphis 15 years ago and has been playing music since the Beatles invaded America.  He has played guitar in the streets and subways of Paris, in clubs and bars in Germany, South Florida, DC and on Beale Street and particularly enjoys playing slide guitar. Along with strong elemental vocal harmonies, Doc’s skill and versatility on lead guitar embodies the diverse styles of Neil Youngs music.

Todd Christensen

Todd Christensen is a multi-instrumentalist with a strong affection for the blues.  He has played with several bands in and around Rochester where he showcases his blues harp and guitar abilities.  In Rustic Moon, Todd provides bass guitar and back-up vocals, but his mesmerizing harmonica is key to the true-to-life Neil Young sound.  

Barb Schramm

Barb Schramm rounds out the band’s sound with rich sounding harmonies and complimentary light percussion. Joining her husband Tom, the two perform multiple gigs every year as a duet and also with Tom Schramm and the LPs.  Her enthusiasm brings a delightful energy to the stage.

Mike James

Mike James is a music educator and a gifted multi-instrumentalist from La Crosse, Wisconsin. He has been teaching and performing for over 30 years and is well known for his wide range of musical proficiencies and stylings.  Playing slide guitar, Mike solidifies the characteristic twang reminiscent of Neil’s style of music.   

LJ Rangel

LJ has been playing drums for more 40 years, first in his country of origin (Venezuela) where he was part of internationally recognized emblematic bands in the progressive/symphonic rock genre. He drifted toward Jazz and Salsa, and was active supporting local Blues, Jazz and Rock cover bands after coming to the US in 2002 and played in the early bands of Sena Ehrhardt and Annie Mack, and continues to collaborate with other musicians in the SE MN area.
