Greetings 8th of January friends!
8th of January is a Georgia bluegrass band steeped in traditional and modern bluegrass tunes, original vocals, sensitive and hard driving instrumentals. 8th of January’s reputation as one of the most respected names in the Atlanta and Southeast bluegrass music scene is led by one of the most versatile mandolinists Bob Knysz, powerhouse voacalist and guitarist Bob Putnam, hard driving bassist and banjoist Ed Davis and one of the southeasts finest fiddlers, and soon to be Dr. Danny Bermel. 8th of January’s vocals lean toward tunes in the more modern era on bluegrass repertoire and recently original compositions have been featured in their shows. They can perform as a solid 4 piece group or add as many another 2-3 additional regional great players.
