We are very happy to announce that our dear friend, and longtime Rhythm Playboys band member, Jerry Dahl, has decided to come out of retirement and will once again be joining the band for a lot of our engagements in 2022 and beyond,  it has truly been like old times to be performing together again.  Make a point to come out and enjoy the authentic classic country vocals and rhythm guitar that Jerry adds to the Rhythm Playboys.  We look forward to seeing you at a dance soon and thank you again for supporting the band for so many years.
