Down Home String Band

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.
