Steel Pennies is David Patton on banjo and vocals, Darrell Cox on mandolin and vocals, Kathy Drazsnzak on guitar and vocals, Kevin Slick on guitar and vocals, and Kathy Foster-Patton on bass. David, a veteran of Coal Creek Bluegrass Band, joined Kathy and several friends who were playing on a regular basis, and Steel Pennies was soon performing for appreciative audiences. Darrell joined the band after meeting up with them at various festivals and jams. David heard Kathy Drazsnzak sing at a jam and asked her if she was interested in joining Steel Pennies. The same thing happened at a different jam when Kevin Slick joined the band. Steel Pennies plays a mix of traditional bluegrass and original music and is always looking for a new and interesting music to add to their repertoire. The band took its name from the 1943 steel penny, produced by the U.S. Mint to save copper during the Second World War. The rusty, lonesome, sound of the Steel Pennies harkens back to the heyday of bluegrass music.
