My New Favorites Bio
My New Favorites combine Appalachian and honky-tonk sounds into a high energy free-for-all. They’re rootsy enough for Americana and country purists and progressive enough for folks who are ready to hear Michael Jackson or the Allman Bros. played on the old time clawhammer banjo.

Led by award-winning singer/songwriter Jeffrey Benedict, the band combines classic and original Americana and honky-tonk sounds. They feature top-notch fiddling from the young virtuoso, Westley Harris, and sweet vocal harmonies from bass-player supreme Amy Benedict. Jason Carpenter, a one-man-band percussionist, rounds out the sound. My New Favorites have been featured at Merlefest, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, the Blue Plum Festival and the PBS-TV series, "Song of The Mountains.”

The Threetles Bio

The Threetles are a three-piece Beatles tribute band formed in 2001 by Ron Hensley and Mark Eades. They perform in costume, use Liverpool accents, and cover all eras of the Beatles music. The band consists of: Ron Hensley a.k.a. Ron “Lennon” (lead vocals, guitar), Mark Eades a.k.a. “MarkCartney” (bass, vocals), and Chris Tarlton a.k.a. “Ringo’s Tarr” (drums, vocals). The Threetles were created out of a passion for playing the tunes of the Beatles and wanting to share the experience with fans of all ages. Emulating the Beatles music and sound is challenging within itself, but the band has placed their own unique spin on it by performing a tribute to a four-piece band with only three musicians. The Threetles can be seen playing at clubs, festivals, weddings, special events, private parties, etc. For booking, please visit the band on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/ThreetlesBand/ or email us at milk74@comcast.net.
