Meet the Band

Untitled-1Breaking Tradition came together about 12 years ago and has had the same four members since then. We play Bluegrass Music together with Gospel Bluegrass. We have a sound system that can project our sound throughout nearly any venue you may need.

The band members are from Bristol, TN, Bluff City, TN and Erwin, TN.

Lester Parks plays the Guitar, sings lead as well as baritone.

Hal Boyd plays the Acoustic Bass and also sings lead as well as baritone and the occasional tenor!

Trever Bartley plays the Banjo and also sings lead and baritone.

Dan Carty plays the Mandolin and sings lead and tenor.

We produced a CD utilizing Eastwood Recording Studios in Cana Virginia under the watchful eye of Sound Genius Engineer Wesley Easter.

We are very proud of our CD and also take pride in knowing that every note played and every note sang was done by one of us. We did not hire any outside musicians or vocalists to complete the recording.
