Hot Buttered Rum is approaching a big birthday in the distant future. It was in December 1998 that the guys first got together, and it was in January of 1999 that the first show was done with the name “Hot Buttered Rum String Band.” It’s been a long, strange trip… In the time leading up to this anniversary, Team Butter is gathering stories, pictures, setlist, videos, recordings on social media and on this site. The best of these stories and pictures will be included in Butter’s 20th Birthday Songbook & Family Album. We encourage you to contribute! Email your story here. And join 3.2 Crew on Facebook to join in the conversation.
