Sleepy Man Banjo Boys have announced the addition of 20 year old Blake Pitney to the band playing bass. The Boys tell us that Blake had played out with them a few times, and is now an official member of the team. They are on the hunt now for a young mandolinist to complete the group.
The pickin’ Mizzone Brothers (Tommy, Johnny and Robbie) came to prominence over the past few years for their instrumental ability, initially through YouTube videos of the youngest brother, Johnny, tearing up the banjo. As they get older and seek to be recognized for their all-around ability, the boys are now focusing on their vocals, and writing songs as well as tunes.
Blake lives in Nashville and will join the band for all their shows. His older brother, Mo Pitney is recently signed with Curb Records and is seeking a career in country music.
