"A 5-String Good Time With Banjoman & Co."

Smithfield Concert In The Park (inside because of inclement weather) June 12, 2010. See URL link - Smithfield Sun


"Smithfield concert a rockin' good time"

...the Smithfield Armory became a concert hall when two local folk/bluegrass bands, Banjoman & Co. of Smithfield and Cranberry Jam of Logan, performed for 216 people who came from as far away as Provo and Idaho Falls for the concert.... Dave Taylor, the banjoman and master of ceremonies said, "I organized the event to provide a venue for local bands. And as you can see, we have some great talent here." From the applause it was pretty obvious the audience agreed.
Banjoman & Co.'s repertoire included a mixture of banjo and fiddle songs with guitar and autoharp numbers, including a sentimental ballad "My Little Old Hometown" that Taylor wrote about and for Smithfield. But, while most of the audience clapped and tapped their feet along with the music there were a few who got so caught up in its energy that they couldn't resist dancing in the back of the hall.
The finale was truly grand when all 16 members of both bands joined together to perform The Orange Blossom Special. The walls of the old Armory shook as the train song brought a dramatic conclusion to the evening... (see photo gallery) - The Herald Journal, Logan, Utah

Bio

Banjoman & Co. formed 2003 in Logan, Utah. Popular with mature audiences who like foot-tapping, lively music.
Dave Taylor, "Banjoman," group founder, was tagged with that "handle" from his 15 seasons as a banjo-toting minstrel at the Festival of the American West in Logan. For over 40 years he has entertained solo and in several folk and bluegrass bands, including portraying banjo-playing characters in several Utah State University stage productions. He has operated a bluegrass shop called The Music Taylor, published a Christmas Banjo Book with Mel Bay, and produced the one and only Bridgerland Bluegrass Festival in 1978. Retired from his day job in 2006, Dave is devoting more time to music: performing, recording, writing and producing. The band performs many of his original songs.
Brian Judy started playing the guitar in 1997. He provides solid backup for the band and adds a booming bass vocal on many of the Company's songs.
Kathy Taylor, Banjoman's wife, thumps the stand-up bass, which she started playing when the band was formed. Her background is in piano, organ and vocal coaching. She helps us with our vocal harmony and adds a touch of glamour to our appearance.
The Company performs as a trio and often incorporates a fiddler and/or mandolinist.
Jesse Taylor, son of Dave & Kathy is a hot fiddler who has been featured on and off with the band whenever he's available. He also plays guitar in a rock band called American Attic.
