The Material Boys
The Material Boys What started as a drunken, humorous notion has matured into a solid outfit of talented bluegrass musicians carving out their own space in the musical landscape. When these seven Boys take the stage they’re gonna bring you some of the most unique bluegrass you've ever heard. If their name doesn't tip you off, you'll have to catch a live performance to witness their one‐of‐a‐kind take on some of Madonna's greatest hits; seamlessly melded with an ever‐growing catalogue of traditional Appalachian bluegrass, original material and a handful of other pop classics. The Material Boys are ∙ Alex Holstein on lead vocals and 12‐string guitar ∙ Larry "Hound Dog" Hill on steel guitar and lead vocals ∙ Kirk Haskins on mando and lead vocals ∙ Glenn "The Blacksmith" on fivestring banjo and vocals ∙ Josh "Doogie" Venden on fiddle and vocals ∙ Erik Riedasch on the bass fiddle and vocals ∙ and Shane Gurno on the steady rollin' washboard and vocals.
