Pete Wernick, "Dr. Banjo," is renowned worldwide for his accomplishments and contributions to bluegrass music: the hot-picking force in several trend-setting bands including Hot Rize , respected author and teacher, songwriter, and long-term President of the International Bluegrass Music Association.

Pete's current performance schedule centers around appearances with FLEXIGRASS, Hot Rize and with his singer/guitarist wife Joan as a duet ("Dr. and Nurse Banjo"). FLEXIGRASS' 2007 release, What The, shows the band's unique combination of banjo with clarinet, vibraphone, bass, and drums continuing to forge new pathways combining traditional and modern elements in American roots music.
