The Bare Hambones consider themselves a roots band. They bring to the stage a blend of bluegrass, rockabilly, outlaw country, blues and rock music. With country and rockabilly rhythms from the bass and piano, a lead guitar player playing a strong lead, acoustic guitar filling in the sound between, and creative, lively drums, the room is filled with energy when The Bare Hambones play.
Tim Larsen has been hacking away at the piano since he was about 12 years old. Never had a lesson, can't read music (which he refers to as 'the dots on the page'), and very much dislikes being referred to as a keyboard player. And for god sake, don't suggest that he play a keytar. He's simply just a piano player.
Tim started The Bare Hambones as a way to have a great birthday party. He got in touch with Brad Riverdahl and the Hambones original bass player, Tim Konn and the idea sounded good enough for the guys to agree to sit in for the night. Tim's friend Michael Brown had been playing an acoustic guitar for awhile, so he and lead guitar player Johnny Wilson rounded out the initial lineup for the birthday show. After that night, Tim Larsen, Mike Brown and Brad Riverdahl wanted to keep the ball rolling, so they reached out to the internet and found Tony Kubicek. After adding Jeff Cali on lead guitar, The Bare Hambones were ready to start playing shows, writing songs, and recording.
When The Bare Hambones played that initial show, it was the first night since 1992 that Tim sang a lead vocal. He's still working on getting over the nerves from that night. He does tend to shy away from attention...
