Our Story

The Wharf Rats, Live! started fifteen years ago as a project to bring a new interpretation to the long format jam sound created by the Dead. The band has evolved over these past years to incorporate Jazz & Classical themes into the improv, as well as originals in the same genre. The band has played at numerous notable venues in the DMV area, and has expanded out to the DelMarva. The sound is unique and captivating, drawing a loyal following as we expand our musical bounds that have no limits. " Shall we go, you and I, while we can....."
