Ann Arbor Distilling Company

Saturday Night Bands: Ryan Rancine Trio

Ryan Racine first made a name for himself as the front man of Ann Arbor’s rockabilly outfit Lucky Haskins. Formed when he was only 15, the band burst onto the metro Detroit rockabilly scene and quickly garnered attention and a loyal fan base. Besides introducing the genre to a whole new generation in the area, they earned spots opening for legends like Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, and Lee Rocker as well as a slot in the 1995 Detroit Music Awards. The sound is still very much grounded in American Roots music but is unbound by the narrow concepts he has applied to previous outings.
