  BACKGROUND VERIFIED
$700 - $3000 per event
Rain Check is a Winston-Salem, NC based acoustic group that has found its niche in putting a bluegrass twist on songs by some of the world's greatest songwriters, combining them with traditional and contemporary bluegrass classics, and an ever growing list of their own originals…all of which combines for a show that pleases audiences of any age and any type of event.

Allen Conrad, guitar and vocals, and Jack Steelman on upright bass, the founding members of Rain Check, trace their histories back to a high school friendship beginning in the late '60's. Allen was focused at the time on his family folk music group, The Conrad Trio; while Jack was playing brass instruments in a variety of classical, big band, and beach music groups including the Platters.

Dennis Severt on mandolin and vocals grew up in the Severt family band and went on from there to star with Lou Reid and Jimmy Haley in the internationally known group, Southound.

John Boulding, banjo, dobro, and vocals, performed with the Severts in his early years, later to become a founding member of Wyatt Rice and Santa Cruz, more recently touring with the Shady Grove Band. By day, John is recognized as one of the most talented instrument repairmen in the country, trained at an early age by his father,Wallace Boulding.

From reflective ballads that lay you back in your seat, to rollicking covers and original songs that get you on your feet, the music of Rain Check is a new breed in America's acoustic music scene. We call in bluegrass without borders, and a whole lot of fun!

The group's third CD, Red Wine For My Heart, was released in May of 2015 and has been played on bluegrass radio shows in Asheville, Raleigh, Nashville, Maine, and Canada.

Rain Check is available for performances at concert venues, festivals, wineries, clubs, restaurants, wedding parties, corporate events, fund raisers, and private parties throughout the mid-Atlantic states.
