Led by their entertaining MC and banjo player, Greg Lawless, the band performs a variety of genres, making them not only hard to classify, but uniquely diverse.

The group plays bluegrass, Western Swing, Cajun, “Celtgrass”, Hawaiian and even a rendition of a recent pop song made famous by Norah Jones.  Blended into the mix are songs written by their talented fiddle and mandolin player, Mark Steudel.

All of these songs are tied together by the harmonious sounds of a magnificent dobro, played by Mark Meyers, who also provides the sweet harmonica interludes.
