Rod the Long Bone (Band)

This group of residents and attendings has become a familiar sound around Causeway Street. RTLB has played gigs at Hurricane O'Reilly's, The Harp, The Grand Canal, Cleary's, Kennedy's, The International, and others. Besides playing for free beer and munchies, the band has also helped raise over $20,000 for worthy causes such as the Jimmy Fund, United Way, Dana-Farber, Hurricane Katrina relief, United Spinal Association, and Starlight Children's Foundation. RTLB is backed by a loyal following of residents, nurses, and staff whose presence make the shows a "wicked fun time" for all. The music is loud and crowd-pleasing with influences ranging from Jimmy Buffett and KC & The Sunshine Band to AC/DC and Blink 182. Even traditional Irish folk songs get a makeover for Dr. Burke's St. Patrick's Day celebration. The band's membership is in constant flux, and includes many members of the Harvard medical family (see below). Strong contributions from departments beyond Ortho have often been made, and anyone with talent and enthusiasm is welcome to join.
