The Beer Scouts
The Beer Scouts are a new San Francisco Bay Area power trio that defines raw Rock & Roll with guitar, bass, drums…and someone screaming over it!
Featuring past and present members of the Sorentinos, the Beer Scouts are Rob Ruiz on 12-string bass and vocals, Howard Vatcher on guitar and vocals, and Kenny Susan on drums and vocals. They play straight ahead Rock & Roll originals and cover tunes influenced by artists such as the Beatles, Brownsville Station, Cheap Trick, the Smithereens, Grand Funk Railroad, Chuck Berry, and the Monkees!
During their careers, the members of the Beer Scouts have shared the stage with the biggest names in rock music, including Van Halen, Jeff Beck, Bob Dylan, and many more. They have played a wide range of venues, from the Concord Pavilion to New York’s The Bitter End, from hometown bars to London pubs.
