$600 - $6000 per event
Heavy Traffic is a four piece traditional bluegrass band established in 2001. Based out of New Jersey, Heavy Traffic plays weddings, parties and festivals in the tri-state area. Founding member Earl Karlsen on mandolin and vocals hosts the Bluegrass Express radio show Saturday mornings on WFDU out of Farleigh Dickinson University. The band's hard drive can be attributed to the savvy Scruggs style banjo pickin' of Arnie Reisman. Heavy Traffic's high lonesome sound comes from the unique tenor vocals of Jeff Propert who also compliments the group with his tasteful rhythm and lead guitar. This bluegrass quartet is powered by the solid bass playing of Guy Leatherman.

Heavy Traffic more than met our expectations!!! Because we could not find a venue this year for the Two Rivers Antiques and Art Show which has raised over 3 million dollars over the last 18 years for the Jacqueline Wilentz Comprehensive Breast Center, we wanted to have a great, casual party to celebrate our success! The band's music was terrific and fun!! Everyone loved Heavy Traffic and I expect we will use them again for this or another benefit.

Incredible band! We hired Heavy Traffic for our wedding and they showed up early and even stayed a little late. We requested a bluegrass Hava Nagila, which they haven't done before and it was phenomenonal! Communication was top notch. We couldn't be happier with our experiance.
