Red Star Express welcomes you

Welcome to the Red Star Express website. We're glad you stopped in to pay us a visit. Check around, we've got lots of goodies here for you.

RSE is known throughout Eastern Wisconsin for its lively performances, fast paced bluegrass, and inspirational Gospel songs and great fun on the stage. Tightly knit harmonies and precision bluegrass solos weave a style that is distinct to this band from Newton, WI.

A few years back, we coined the phrase "Newtongrass" to explain our brand of bluegrass to our listening audiences. We honor the roots of American bluegrass music, learned from the likes of Bill Monroe, the Dillards, the Stanley Brothers and others like them. Being comprised of mostly Wisconsin natives, we realize that it's pretty hard for us to copy exactly this style of music that is so entrenched in the culture of the southern US.

So, our bluegrass might sound a little different than the standards. That's why we like to say its bluegrass you might expect, but it's NewtonGrass you're gonna get!

Be sure to check our calendar for upcoming performances.

Red Star Express would be thrilled to consider playing for your event, or at your venue. Click on the contact information at the bottom of the page to connect with our scheduler.
