"The mandolin, the guitar and the stand-up bass are the staples of bluegrass music, and you get all three with the Sweetwater Creek Bluegrass Band. The members bring decades of experience in bluegrass to the table or to your next party or event. This group has smooth vocals combined with picking and that driving sound that gets your toes tapping and makes you want to get on the dance floor. Sweetwater Creek's goal is to make bluegrass fun, and it does just that with each and every performance."

Rick Limpert, CBS Atlanta
