They breathe new life into a classic genre with fresh ideas and playful family charm. Conceived in 2006 by a husband and wife team, Todd and Paisley Gray, playing of mandolin, upright bass, and banjo leaving plenty of room for their rich vocal harmonies. New bandmates, and Alyse Read (banjo) complete the band's rich sound.
Yes they all know their bluegrass licks and aren’t afraid to show them off, and their music is full of ideas borrowed from old time fiddle tunes, jazzy delta blues, pop, rock, reggae and funk as we. No Cover. Donations appreciated. Hear Pickled Okra: http://getokra.com/fr_home.cfm.
