Ron "Rudy" Mamula was born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio where he played in the high school marching band!  He sang in the church choir with his two brothers and three sisters where their Mom was the choir director!

Rudy moved to Tucson in 1981 and started playing Bluegrass music at age 52!  When his younger brother Sam moved to Tucson the beginning of the Bluegrass Band Dusty River was formed!  Over the Last 15 years many local musicians played in the band and contributed their talent to the bands success.

Rudy had been president of the DBA for two years and started the East Tucson Bluegrass workshop and ran it for seven years at the Udall Park Rec Center!  It is still going on today under Dave Polston’s tutelage!
