We are Rustenhaven, five guys that play with the 
energy of twelve.  Every crowd we play for not only has
a great and memorable time, but  there are songs in each of
our sets that will please everyone all the time  from 20s to 60s
in age. From the time we hit the stage we become close to the 
crowd and get them involved with the whole show. We keep the
dance floor  packed with people singing along and dancing. There
is not any music we do not cover and club and festival
promoters love the variety.

We specialize in Benefits, Weddings, Corporate Functions,
Banquets, Private Parties, Clubs and all Special Affairs!

When you need quality entertainment for your special
event, go no further than Rustenhaven!

Joel Rustenhaven - Lead Vocals/Guitar


I have been singing since I was 3. I grew up singing in the church, also traveled all across the United States, from Dallas to Boston singing with bands. In 2001 I formed The Rustenhaven Band. I have had several different members since I started the band. The guys we have now are great musicians. Also changed the style of music to make a bigger variety to please all the fans. I love to play and sing from the camp fire to the big stage, but I love the fans the most.

Steve Larson - Bass/Vocals



I have been playing music since my piano lessons when i was a little kid. I picked up the bass when I was 13 and never looked back. Playing all over from LA to Lansing, Grand Island to West Palm, my bass is always with me. I've played with Joel and the boys on and off for the past 5 years, sometimes leaving to try new things, but always coming back for the good times and good friends! The Rustenhaven Band is a rockin good time for us all!
