As usual, “Trashgrass” heroes the Rumpke Mountain Boys spent a lot of their year on the road in 2019, playing coast to coast to their loyal fanbase (and surely picking up lots of new followers along the way), including dates at several music festivals.

For the past few years, the Rumpkes have been giving hometown fans a year-end thrill with a two-night stand at Oakley’s 20th Century Theater — on New Year’s Eve, as well as New Year’s Eve Eve.

The tradition continues this year and once again the group is bringing along a bevy of special guests to join them each night. Opening on Dec. 30 will be Indiana jam act the Joe Marcinek Band — with guests Scott Jackson and Blair Ping of Hyryder and Eric Lanese of Ekoostik Hookah — and West Virginia “Appalachian Rock” quintet Fletcher’s Grove. Then, Lexington, Kentucky’s Restless String Band, Kansas City’s Grassfed and “Folk ’n Roll” duo the Pickin’ Pear will help RMB ring in 2020 on NYE.

8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 30 and 31. $15; $20 day of show for Dec. 30; $25; $30 day of show for Dec. 31. Two-day passes are $35. 20th Century Theater, 3021 Madison Road, Oakley,
