About The Group

This version of the Rhythm Ramblers was made up of three gentlemen who were living in the Livinston, Montana area and started performing together around 1951 or 1952. They did numerous personal appearances throughout the southern Montana area back then, for civic groups as well as the usual night spots.

They had their own show over radio station KPRK in Livingston as well.

Louis Armentaro was the leader of the group, playing lap steel guitar. His brother Frank was on bass and did what they call the "fast vocals". Oscar Bergsing was on rhythm guitar and was known for doing the vocals on the slow ballad numbers.
