BOOKED {{daysSinceLastBookingText()}}

$700 - $3000 per event
Howdy, We are a Chattanooga, TN based, 5 piece, smooth, driving bluegrass band for any occasion. Our members are Sam Crabtree on banjo, Kyle Tolbert on guitar, Michael Williams on mandolin, Eric Bruce on upright bass and August Bruce on fiddle. We can play anywhere you need for any occasion like weddings, festivals, coffee shops, grand openings, anniversaries, gospel shows, family reunions, birthdays, concert halls or anything you can dream up. We love Bluegrass and play Bluegrass exclusively during our shows. Our brand of grass could be described as smooth driving professional bluegrass. no country flare, no jam grass/newgrass flare, not your grandpa's Bluegrass, no hipster flare, no tinny nasal vocals, just our version of smooth driving bluegrass. Our style of Bluegrass keeps a varied age group of fans from little tykes that love to get up and dance to college age to the more mature audience member that remembers when Bluegrass was dominating the air waves. We have played lots of places on lots of stages but our favorite one is our next one. We can't wait to meet you and entertain your group.

Our wedding services go beyond a band performance. We work closely with you to make the live soundtrack of your day exactly what you have imagined.

We are available as a Full Band, Trio or Solo Instrument during a Wedding and other events. Full Band is required for all of our events but a trio or solo instrument can entertain for small portions of the event such as the bridal march, recessional or a cocktail hour before the reception.
