The Timber Rattlers are an energetic acoustic band that pull from their bluegrass roots, but also strive to push the boundaries of their music. Fast paced dance tunes, instrumentals, old school resonator blues, unique covers and ear-catching originals are all on the set list.
Each member has each spent extensive time touring and in the studio. From the west coast to parts of Europe.

Caleb Dostal -
A prodigy in the field of contemporary banjo. Caleb has been playing since he was 11. He first heard the banjo on some old CD’s around the house and fell in love with the sound, and from then on has had an almost inhuman drive to improve his ability and discover more of the possibilities that the banjo holds.
Currently the band is looking to 2019 as a year to focus on public performances in Missoula and the Bitterroot Valley. They are also spending time writing and rehearsing as they prepare for for an album in later 2019.
