A bluegrass super group comprised of 5 seasoned pickers and vocalists… Tater Patch was formed in 2018 under the direction and inspiration of fiddler, guitarist and vocalist Adam Straubinger. The cast of characters has changed over the course of time, and has in the past included the legendary Bill “Wild Bill” Parsons on bass and Larry Brandon on mandolin. Currently, Justin Moore is Adam’s accomplice in singing and fiddling, and the two can harmonize like the Stanley Brothers, Delmore Brothers, Louvin Brothers, or any other brothers you can think of. “Shaky” Dave Manion is playing the resonator guitar, or dobro, as it were, and delivering licks so lonesome and beautiful it could make you cry. He’s been known to let his commanding baritone voice out occasionally as well. Holding down the 5 string banjo (or maybe it’s holding him down cause he’s so happy when he’s picking you think he might float away) is Tate Mason, who is equally comfortable playing 3 finger or clawhammer style. Either way he spices up the sound with his tasty banjo pickin. Rounding out the sound and keeping them in time is Beth Mason on the upright bass. She takes an occasional turn singing lead on some songs and harmonizing on others. All told, this is a fun and energetic ensemble sharing their version of old time, bluegrass and traditional music.
