THE BAND

 

ANDREA VALDERAMMA; BASS AND VOCALS

 

I WAS BORN WITH THE SOUND OF MUSIC IN MY BLOOD AND WAS RAISED ON GOSPEL, COUNTRY AND BLUEGRASS. I REMEMBER AS A YOUNG GIRL SINGING WITH MY DADDY, MATT SPENCE, AND ALWAYS WANTING TO PLAY ON STAGE WITH HIM. I ENJOY EVERY MINUTE WITH THIS GROUP OF GUYS AND LOVE WHAT I DO WITH ALL OF MY HEART. THANKS TO MY FAMILY, FANS AND FRIENDS FOR THEIR LOYAL SUPPORT FOR I WOULDN'T BE WHAT I AM TODAY WITHOUT THEM.

PAUL BOONE

 

MANDOLIN AND VOCALS

 

PAUL GREW UP IN A MUSICAL FAMILY AND STARTED PLAYING GUITAR AT AGE 10. HE PLAYED WITH HIS FAMILY ON WEEKENDS AND WAS CONSTANTLY EXPOSED TO BLUEGRASS MUSIC BY HIS DAD (JIM BOONE) WHO HAS A MASSIVE COLLECTION OF BLUEGRASS 78 RECORDS. AT AGE 20 WHILE RIDING IN THE BACK OF A PICKUP TRUCK ON THE WAY TO KEY WEST FLORIDA, PAUL'S LOVE AFFAIR WITH THE MANDOLIN BEGAN. WITH NOTHING TO DO AND MANY MILES TO TRAVEL PAUL TOOK HIS UNCLE BILL'S OLD 1913 GIBSON A-STYLE MANDOLIN OUT OF THE CASE AND STARTED PICKING OUT WILDWOOD FLOWER.

 

SINCE THEN PAUL HAS PLAYED IN MANY BANDS INCLUDING HOMESPUN, SOLID STATE, THE FOGGY MEMORY BOYS, EAST 24 AND THE SOUTHERN ALLIANCE BAND. SINCE 2013 PAUL HAS BEEN PLAYING MANDOLIN AND SINGING WITH THE HARD DRIVING BLUEGRASS BAND, BLUE CONNECTION.

MATT SPENCE: GUITAR,MANDOLIN AND VOCALS

 

AS A YOUNG MAN I LEARNED TO PLAY THE GUITAR. LATER IN LIFE I MOVED ON TO OTHER INSTRUMENTS SUCH AS THE BASS AND MANDOLIN ONLY TO FIND MYSELF BACK AT MY ROOTS PICKING THE GUITAR. MUSIC HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PASSION OF MINE AND AN IMPORTANT ASPECT OF MY LIFE. I CHERISH AND LOVE EACH AND EVERY TIME I CAN GET ON STAGE AND DO SOME PICKIN' AND GRINNIN'. I AM TRULY THANKFUL FOR THE GIFT GOD HAS GIVEN ME.

KENNY HAMBLIN; BANJO, GUITAR AND VOCALS

 

I HAVE BEEN PLAYING MUSIC OFF AND ON FOR OVER THIRTY YEARS. I HAVE PLAYED MANY STYLES FROM BLUEGRASS TO HEAVY METAL AND ALL POINTS BETWEEN. ACOUSTIC MUSIC HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY FIRST LOVE. IT'S SUCH AN HONOR AND A PLEASURE TO BE A PART OF THIS BAND AND I LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT.
