Background:

Action Andy Rasmussen has played with the the Bomboras, 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, released by Relampago-go Records under the band name Action Andy & the Hi-Tones in 2013.

An electrifying blend of Americana and alt-country styles, High and Lonesome shifts into straight ahead rock & roll, a touch of Latin, and minor key moves. Part concept album, it tells the tale of a man's search for Love and Redemption, with the pitfalls, perils, and trials that occur along the way.

This album features the talents of his band The Hi-Tones, comprised of Xavier Anaya on lead guitar (Hoods, Trebels, Baja Bugs, Phantoms, etc.), Tom Ward on upright and electric bass (Gravedigger V, Nashville Ramblers), and Skid Roper (Mojo Nixon, Evasions, Country Dick Montana & The Snuggle Bunnies, etc.) on cocktail drum.
