Congratulations Rusty on the release of your new CD!! You are such an accomplished artist and having shared the stage with so many superstars, is proof that you are one of Sault Ste. Marie's greatest artist ever and you deserve success. Don't let the same usual not so gentleman who knows nothing about music rain on your parade, just keep doing what you do best!! Wish you all the luck in the world!!

Congratulations, Rusty!! This town would be lacking lots if it wasn't for your Blues Night, Jazz Night, any music you create...bringing musicians and people together and out of the wood works in this town, teaching how to respect one another, 'play together nicely' and to keep on toes and learn, always learn...
