The Blue Canyon Boys
The Blue Canyon Boys The Blue Canyon Boys, winners of the 2008 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition, have been picking and entertaining audiences with their unique style of bluegrass in the Colorado area for over five years. This high energy bluegrass powerhouse consists of Gary Dark on mandolin, Jason Hicks on guitar, Drew Garrett on bass, and Jeff Scroggins on banjo. Blending incredible brother-duet-style vocals and hard-driving instrumental proficiency, this energetic Colorado band has quickly become a mainstay of the front range bluegrass scene. Rooting themselves in tradition, The Blue Canyon Boys draw upon influences like the Stanley Brothers, Jim and Jesse, and Jimmy Martin to entertain audiences with a thoughtful selection of songs, fine musicianship and humorous stage presence. They have been earning a reputation as a bluegrass band that plays with sincere intensity and raw emotion. The Blue Canyon Boys also offer well-crafted original material, which can be heard on their debut CD, "Just An Ol Dirt Road", and their sophmore release "Hello City Limits". They are currently hard at work on their third CD entitled, "House Full of Sorrow"
