The Muckrakers, Rock Band


The Muckrakers are a dynamic rock band that plays a wide range of music. Acoustically based, they sing everything from sweet love songs (“When I Fall”) to songs that have audiences rolling with laughter (“The Stripper Song”). But whatever the style, all the songs are built on tight harmonies and an explosive rhythm section.

Rob Carpenter John Ruby Lead vocalist/guitarist Rob Carpenter (left) and vocalist/guitarist John Ruby are the founding members of the Muckrakers. The two started playing six years ago at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green. They were a duo act at first, then expanded into a band in 1998 by adding bassist Brian Meurer (below left) and drummer Dave Sparks.

The Muckrakers continue to play in and around Louisville. Visit the official band web site to listen to their CD, Forgot To Breathe, and to see when and where they will be playing next. Brian Meurer David Sparks
