A little fire in the belly … Some sparks in the eyes … Vision tapped … all along with some toe-tappin’ finger snappin’ hand clappin. What we have here, is three brothers who put together a band known as the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys:
Tommy is fifteen years old (15) playing the guitar;
Jonny is ten years old (10), a banjo pickin’ young buck;
Robby is fourteen years old (14), is the fiddler.
The fact that these guys are in a bluegrass jam session and their point of origin is New Jersey seems somewhat ironic. I’ve never thought of much bluegrass coming out of New Jersey. If you go to this link, to hear a quick tune by the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys, I think you’ll be fine if you just play the first 2:47 … I am not an advocate of long Youtube clips. I do think you will find that first 2:47 enjoyable, and somewhat motivating … to see what three young fellows can do …
