Charley Oakley to Carolina Road

Lorraine Jordan has a new bass player in her band, Carolina Road.

Charley Oakley, from Roxboro, NC will hold down the rhythm section, do a bit of buck dancing in the show, and keep everybody in line out on the road. In addition to working with a long string of bluegrass Gospel bands, Charley has a career in law enforcement.

Hmmm…  that could come in handy when a state trooper finds fault with the way the bus is moving down the highway, yes?

He joins Ben Greene on banjo, Dustin Benson on guitar, Josh Goforth on fiddle, and Jordan on mandolin in Carolina Road.

You can follow their tour schedule online.
