Presented for your musical enjoyment… the quick pickin’ Mizzone Brothers from Lebanon Township, NJ. Big brother Tommy (13) plays mandolin and guitar, with younger siblings Robbie (11) on fiddle and Jonny (8) on banjo.
They perform as the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys, a name taken from the youngest Master Mizzone’s habit of playing his banjo lying down, eyes closed. They have a debut CD set for release in December, with proceeds to be donated to the Wounded Warrior Foundation.
All three are talented young musicians, but it’s little Jonny who steals the show. Watch him practicing Clinch Mountain Backstep in his bedroom at home…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hO9iDlD6Rtk
…and then letting it fly at an open stage program in Livingston, NJ.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqM8fSrbBQs
You can follow the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys on Facebook. Who knows… one day we may talk anbout the Mizzone Brothers like so many of those other great “Brothers of Bluegrass.”
