Enter Monroeville

Another new young band!

Monroeville has emerged from the dust-up that saw the members of Second Wind leave Barry Scott en masse in July. They have been active only a week, but much is expected from this talented bunch of pickers.

Despite their youth, these fellas boast a combined bluegrass experience of nearly 80 years. Daniel Salyer is on bass, Matt Munsey on mandolin, Travis Houck on resonator guitar, Zane Petty on banjo, Seth Taylor on guitar and Matt Flake on fiddle. Several band members sing, and Salyer is a uniquely gifted songwriter to boot.

The guys put this video together to serve as an introduction. It follows the boys on their initial photo shoot, and then running over a few songs at their first rehearsal.

Monroeville will be managed by Sheri Clark Media with publicity handled by Blu Wav. More information can be found on the band’s web site or Facebook page.

Keep an eye on this group. Talent, drive, youth and a professional management team – add a bit of luck and this bunch is a force to be reckoned with in the bluegrass biz.

  • Monroeville has all the ingredients in place, and from this video are musically mature for their ages….looking forward to seeing them live and hearing their CD, the Waltz they played on the video has some wonderful chord progressions…great job guys…good luck!
