Who we are...

The Jangling Reinharts sprung from several bands in the Central Virginia area - regional and nationally known bands such as BS&M, the Kyle Davis Band, and the Ernies. 

Rick Schaffer was a founding member of BS&M out of Richmond, Va.  BS&M developed a large regional following in the mid-Atlantic area setting attendance records in the Outer Banks and other venues and releasing several CD's.  Rick plays guitar and sings.  His musical inspiration began early with "Monkees" reruns along with CCR, Donovan, and  The Band records (you didn't know that Buster!). 

There is a picture of Buster Bohannon  aged 3 playing guitar on the wall in a local music store in Richmond.  He is one of the most gifted guitar players around in the style of Mark Knopfler, Jeff Beck and Robbie Robertson.  A multi-instrumentalist and percussionist, he is also a gifted singer.  He has toured with national recording artist Kyle Davis opening up for everyone from Dave Mathews to Robert Earle Keen.  He has a big heart and a smooth head.

Danny Fisher doesn't just play the drums, well yes he does actually.  But boy can he play.  Growing up in Richmond,  Danny was a scenester in the local music scene.  Bands like "Boo" and "The Late Show"  shared Danny's growing talents. He then spent several years in the San Francisco music scene before one too many earthquakes made him realize that Richmond's music scene was on pretty solid footing.  He is also a gifted singer as well as one of the most talented drummers on just a snare and kick.  Danny is part of the soul of the earth and also has a smooth head.

Mike Hughes is the newest and youngest of the Reinharts.  He is probably the most versatile musician in the band.  Though he plays bass on stage, off stage he plays everything else brilliantly - over and over again.  He toured nationwide with the Ernies and can even be found on the original Tony Hawk Playstation game where the band actually has a video placement on one of the levels.  Needless to say, the Reinharts immediately hit back alleys looking for this original game just to see if he was lying.  He's not.  He's there!  Oh and one more thing - he also has a smooth head.

The Reinharts love playing music  together and love sharing that love with all of our friends and fans.  Now let's all get back up on stage and jump into a pile....
