Hello Fans, I have decided to retire after
nearly 20 years together with BVBB. I am
very proud of what this great group of guys
have accomplished…. we had an amazing run
with the “Original Four”. I've met so
many wonderful people over the years and I will take with
me the memorable times and many amazing
experiences that this band has been a part
As wonderful as it has been, playing in a
band requires a large time commitment and
now I would like to be able to spend more
time with my wife and family and enjoy our
time together. You may still see me out
there playing occasionally however. Once
Bluegrass is in your DNA, it’s very hard to
stop cold turkey!!
THANK YOU all for your support over the
years. It has meant the world to the me and
of course the band. Thanks Bob and Dave Dick and my best
man Ken Taylor for the 20 great years of

Bob Dick on
Nowlan on mandolin and
Ken Taylor on upright
bass, this same original
lineup has been together since 1998.
Over the years this seasoned group has built
up a solid and ever expanding repertoire to
go along with an engaging stage performance;
these guys can really mix things up
musically and entertain an audience! They're
all multi-instrumentalists and play a wide
range of bluegrass styles... but what
really sets them apart are their
powerful three and four part harmonies.
Come check out

great bluegrass music, smooth harmonies,
fast but tasteful pickin', and most
importantly, to have a great time!
