The Band

Jeff Blackburn

Georgetown, KY

I was raised around muisc my whole life. It's in my blood. Some of my earliest memories are of my dad and his cousins, uncles, family playing music from bluegrass it Ike & Tina and everything in between. There's a picture at mom's house in an old picture book of me sitting crossed legged in my dad's guitar case. Me, my dad, and both my brothers still play music everytime we are together for any reason. Since the early 90's I have been playing in bands, doing solo gigs, etc from Central, KY and also spent some time traveling with a country band based out of Knoxville. My mottos is always, tune up and throw down, every opportunity I can get.

I also do a few speaking engagements each year. Motivational, leadership, inspirational, etc.

 

Steve Maynard

Winchester, KY

Steve plays dobro and banjo for me in quite a few of my shows. He is a professional performer with the professional bluegrass gospel group called Higher Vision. On the weekends he is not touring with them he comes out and plays gigs with me. Been my right hand on the road for going 20 years now. You won't find a better person out there.

 

Ron Gabbard

Richmond, KY

Big Ron is a former professional musician well versed in guitar, banjo, mandolin, and an amazing singer and songwriter.His bluegrass gospel CD is amazing and one of the songs has even been recorded by a professional touring group. You will really enjoy his part of the show. He makes me sound like I know what I am doing.

 

Zac Blanton

Georgetown, KY

Zac plays the cajon and sings. Also he plays the guitar and sings on some songs as well. Zac is another Eastern KY boy like most all of the rest of us and we are glad to have him along for the ride. He's also muscular and huge and the bouncer of the crew. LOL. Great and super talented guy.

 

Britt Ripley

Cynthiana, KY

Britt is the newest addidtion to the madness. He's a solid bass player and a heck of a dude. You will see him on the bigger gigs we do and maybe a few of the others too. He's new to the area so make sure you come up and say hi when you see him out and about with me.
