MASHVILLE BRIGADE Hits The Road in 2010
Nashville’s bluegrass supergroup, The Mashville Brigade, is pleased to announce they are available for select road dates in 2010!
The band was formed almost three years ago by a group of friends (Aaron McDaris, Ashby Frank, Darrell Webb, Jim Van Cleve, and Randy Barnes) from various professional touring bands as a way to perform and have some fun together in their spare time while they were off the road. Since the formation of the group, it has become a “must see” event for any Bluegrass fan passing through Nashville. It is the only weekly Bluegrass performing act at Nashville’s bluegrass home, the “World Famous” Station Inn. Well known country and bluegrass music entertainers such as Dierks Bentley, Ronnie Bowman, and Terri Clark, just to name a few, have been seen sitting in with the Brigade. In fact, Dierks requested the group to perform with him at his annual Nashville Charity Motorcycle Ride last year.
For road dates, the Brigade will be featuring the legendary Terry Baucom on banjo. Terry has become one the most influential bluegrass musicians of his generation, and was a founding member of the groundbreaking groups Boone Creek, Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, IIIrd Tyme Out, and Lou Reid, Terry Baucom and Carolina.
Along with Terry, the Mashville Brigade consists of some of the brightest stars in the bluegrass world. They are young, but seasoned members and/or veterans of top-notch bluegrass bands such as JD Crowe and the New South, Special Consensus, Rhonda Vincent and the Rage, Wildfire, Marty Raybon and Full Circle, Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper, and the Josh Williams Band to name a few.
The band released their critically acclaimed album “BLUEGRASS SMASH HITS” on Rural Rhythm Records in 2008 as a tribute to the traditional bluegrass songs that they have performed on stage and in jams for years.
The Mashville Brigade promises to deliver a high energy, hard driving, modern but still traditional bluegrass all-star performance and is looking forward to hitting the road!
