It all started a secret downtown Boone location, the legendary jam room in Ben Smith's bassmint. Ben knew a mandolin player named Jeff Moretz, they invited John Sheffield over to play some fiddle tunes. John invited Brian Kreher and from the first night they all played together, they knew something special was happening. It was on...they booked a weekly gig and people started paying attention to their unique mountain sound. They started earning their fans, one show, one music-lover at a time.
