Since 1999, The Rusty Griswolds have been performing; bringing energy as only they can to the best music of the 80's. A local favorite, they were voted Best Party / Cover Band in 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007 by the readers of Cincinnati's City Beat Magazine.

Time after time The Rusty Griswolds have been asked to perform benefit concerts for well deserving benefit and charity events. Due to advance bookings of up to 9-12 months and cost prohibitive issues, we too often have to decline. So we had an idea: what if we invited local charities to become part of an annual event where they could showcase their causes and raise money through ticket sales? And that’s how The Rusty Ball started rolling.
