Formed in Las Vegas, NV in 2013, The Rhyolite Sound bring their own desert honky tonk to the stage, blending elements of Outlaw, Rockabilly, Honky Tonk, Blues, and Rock n Roll. Their aim is to attract the hardest-core traditionalist as well as the most casual country music fan with a live show that's raucous and rowdy, containing plenty of banter in between songs to keep their audience entertained. Delicately weaving their melodies and harmonies alongside madness and mayhem, The Rhyolite Sound are purveyors of pure honky tonk in an impure world.

Throughout the years, The Rhyolite Sound have been fortunate to share the stage with acts such as:

Willie Nelson, Whitey Morgan and The 78s, Koe Wetzel, Dale Watson, Blackberry Smoke, Junior Brown, The Reverend Horton Heat, Wanda Jackson, Shooter Jennings, mike and the moonpies, American Aquarium and many more.


notable awards:

  • Twice nominated for Ameripolitan Awards as honky tonk and outlaw band of the year

  • Three time winners of the Best of Las Vegas

  • Best Breakout Band voted by the Desert Companion
