Action Andy Rasmussen has played with the Loons, Sleepwalkers, and Haunted Honky Tonkers, who were later renamed The Return of Action Andy.
“I do not seek an audience, I do not seek fans, nor any notoriety,” says Action Andy. “This soul of mine leads me to a place where I can pick up, put down, drink up, and settle it all in song. If I can make music with friends, I know my life will be well spent.”
A 2007 Action Andy solo full-length, Haunted Honky-tonk, was released on Relampago-go Records. Players on the album include Hector Penalosa, Matt Stratchota, Gig Fortier, Maren Parusel, Adrian Demain, and Jerry Rigg.
In 2011, Rasmussen recorded a new album called High and Lonesome at Earthling Studios, with Skid Roper on drums, Xavier Anaya (Trebels, Hoods, Baja Bugs) on lead guitar, and Tom Ward (Nashville Ramblers, Fairmounts) on upright and electric bass. As of 2012, the record is still in progress, with plans to be released by Action Andy & the Hi-tones.
