Recently, I ran across a video made of my banjo group, the Banjo Barons Ragtime Band, performing at a concert a few years ago. The tunes are played by two four string banjos and string bass) and still sounded pretty good to me. So, I had it converted to digital and uploaded several of the videos to YouTube. Three are OKOM tunes and the other is a great Harry Reser tune from 1928.
The music is played by tenor banjo (me on the Gold banjo), plectrum banjo (Jim Kerhin, now living in Pennsylvania) and Dave Martinsek on string bass. Since the videos were made, I've changed the makeup of the band, which now consists of Tenor Banjo, Washboard and String Bass.
If you're interested (and who doesn't like banjo music), check out these videos on YouTube:
