Blake PitneyThe Sleepy Man Banjo Boys bluegrass music group has announced the addition of 20-year old Blake Pitney on Bass. The band says, "Blake is equally talented on both acoustic and electric bass, and we’re really excited to have him traveling with us!" Part of the welcome was that the band said if they received likes on their page, they would post a photo of Blake in a white tuxedo. Well, visit their site to view the pic and go ahead and add them to your "Liked" pages too.

Forty-five minutes from New York City in the western hills of New Jersey live the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys. With a combined age younger than music’s Hip-Hop era, eleven-year-old Jonny Mizzone on banjo, along with his brothers Robbie (14) on fiddle, and Tommy (15) on guitar are determined to bring their up-tempo acoustic string music to the next generation.

Inspired by the 1950’s music of Flatt & Scruggs & The Stanley Brothers, the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys are passionate about sharing their God-given musical gifts and invite you to watch them grow.
