Fronted by internationally acclaimed two-time National Banjo Champion Jeff Scroggins, their distinct style is immediately recognizable due to Jeff’s unique and diverse range of influences, which include Alan Munde, Don Reno, Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton. His fiery style and lightning-fast licks have earned him worldwide recognition and have left many a first-time listener in stunned disbelief! The band also features the award-winning mandolin playing of Jeff’s son Tristan Scroggins: Coming from an entirely different generation both musically and in life, Tristan brings his own individual sound and musical perspective to the group. At only 20 years old, Tristan is an award-winning instrumentalist and accomplished songwriter in his own right while the instrumentals he shares with Jeff play a large role in the band’s unique and energetic style. To round out the experience, West Virginia native Greg Blake provides powerful bluegrass vocals steeped in country heritage, bringing a truly authentic sound developed from a lifetime of singing bluegrass, gospel, and country. Twice nominated for SPBGMA’s “Traditional Male Vocalist of the Year” award, Greg’s phenomenal guitar playing has earned him nine nominations and five consecutive wins as SPBGMA’s Guitarist of the Year. In addition to their individual accomplishments, the band was featured as one of No Depression Magazine’s “Six New Discoveries”, standing alongside established greats that include Bela Fleck, Abigail Washburn, and Danny Paisley.
