Solid Blue Bluegrass Band History
Solid Blue was formed in 2012 when 5 friends that have played together for many years decided to form the band. Over time the band has undergone changes, resulting in the personnel noted here. Though Solid Blue has only existed since 2012, the members, in various combinations, have played music together for several more years than that nationally and internationally. We make our living in industries as diverse as Aerospace, Insurance, and Public Education, but decided to form Solid Blue to express our love for making Bluegrass and unique acoustic music.
The members of the band are:
- Bud Teague: Guitar, Lead and Harmony Vocals
- Steve Adlich: Guitar, Lead Vocals
- Bart Collins: Banjo, Harmony Vocals
- Mike Smitherman: Mandolin, Harmony Vocals
Jeff Cagle: Bass, Lead and Harmony Vocals
Solid Blue plays a variety of events from festivals to weddings to private parties! Please contact us for more information on our schedule and bookings!
