The Amish Outlaws
It is a little-known fact that most Amish practice a traditionsimilar to the Christian “Confirmation” and Jewish “Bar Mitzvah”
called “Rumspringa” (literal translation: “running around”) inwhich Amish children at the age of 16 have an opportunity to live free of the strict Amish code of conduct before deciding if they
want to come back and be baptized into the Amish church.
Surprisingly, virtually all of the youths return.
But sometimes they don’t.Four out of the original six members of The Amish Outlaws wereborn and raised in Lancaster, PA and had a strict Amishupbringing. No electricity from land lines, no alcohol, nomusical instruments, but their spirits were too wild for the Amish
lifestyle. Once they trampled in the Devil’s Playground, there wasno turning back. In the years since Rumspringa, the members of
the Amish Outlaws have become very well acclimated to thepleasures and vices of the modern world... music, most of all. Hip
hop, rock, country, metal, disco, opera. There is no genre they donot touch upon.
Thus, with a bold lust for life and a fire for music and performancethat can only come from 16 years of repression, The Amish
Outlaws were unleashed upon the world.
