Roustabout members Bob Thompson, Joey Spiegel, Chris Kauffman and Justin Barker call themselves “a folk band steeped in Americana.”

They incorporate folk, rock and “jazzy Love Boat-inspired grooves” in their original tunes and covers of a diverse set of artists ranging from the Avett Brothers to Death Cab for Cutie, accompanying the-mselves on guitar, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, harmonica, upright and electric bass and percussion.
