Why hire Down Home String Band?
3 professional musicians, each with a lifetime of experience, started playing tunes they all knew. Old souls and new seeds mixed and a unique sound that belongs only to the Down Home String Band was born. Mike Asher, lead vocals and acoustic guitar creates just the right feeling with his unusual, honest voice. Dennis Horton on guitar & Jerry Bone on bass join him, blending their voices to make memorable harmonies. They perform a wide variety of songs, departing from their traditional country roots to touch different genres ranging from big band favorites to motown. Clean, studio quality musicianship with a tasteful touch of improvisation result in a product that leaves you wanting more
Dennis Horton and Mike Asher met in 2006 while auditioning for a musical stage production and seemed to gel musically. When Dennis asked his lifelong friend and musical collaborator Jerry Bone to join them they started turning cover songs into something personal, adding their own flavor to every song. And the rest, as they say, is history.
