Just Released


Many times after a concert when people come to meet us and buy our CDs, they ask which one has the most banjo and Bluegrass? So this time, I decided to play banjo on every song and record songs that people seem to like the most in a concert setting.

Some music just makes you happy. Ever tried to stay depressed while listening to mariachi music? Can’t do it. It’s upbeat and happy like banjo music, bluegrass toe tappers. My fellow pickers and singers on this recording are authentic and have raw talent so that the recording is down home grits and gravy, comfort music. Hope you enjoy it and play it every time you need a pick up to get you through the flat lines in your life.

So here ya go…’More Banjo, Please’ is just that. Fun, upbeat, and happy songs. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did recording it!
