I just watched an exciting group of musicians on the David Lettermen show.
They were the "Men With Banjos Who Know How To Use Them". The group featured
5 banjos plus a rhythm section of 2 guitars and a mandolin. The banjoists
included Earl Scruggs and Steve Martin.

Truly excellent music... in more of a bluegrass vein than anything else. If
you like the banjo and who doesn't (provided it's played well), you'd enjoy
this group. They only played one number on which each of the banjoists took
solos and there wasn't much information given except that they would be
player at the New York music festival on September 24.
