Well Howdy Folks,I would just like to say first of all that I am trying my best to keep this website updated as often as possible and you can also check us out on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram at openhighwaybluegrass band. I would also like to let everyone know that the Open Highway band is back at it full force!!! The band has relinquished a couple of the older members that was once with the group to acquire the same sound that we've always strive for in that people have come to enjoy.First of all myself Jim Duty is still currently playing the upright Bass and fronting the group, along with doing some of the lead singing and tenor vocals. On Banjo is a longtime member of the Open Highway band George Nelson,who has over 30 years experience and picking the 5-string banjo and also doing some fine finger-picking a few numbers on some of our past projects. "smiling George Nelson is a pleasure to have in the band and his 'right hand' helps bring the band together to form its Drive and enthusiasm that are unmatched by anyone...On mandolin once again is a past member of the group, Scott Adkins..Scott has played with various bands throughout including Dave Evans and Riverbend still currently performs with the band Out of mind band and like George is unmatched by any other mandolin player...Scott sings lead vocal on many of the songs and also is a fine baritone singer...his music abilities has carried him to one of the finest singers and musicians in these parts..Our guitar player Max Mobley,has just been a great addition to the band after my dad Jim Sr.,had to step down due to health reasons..Max has stepped up to take on the lead guitar playing along with doing some lead singing, tenor and baritone vocals..coming from a very tallented family,Max Mobley has supplied the band with his musical abilities and the drive that we all have as one,to make this group a wonderful, exciting group to watch perform live..On fiddle and harmonies Mr.John Obora. Johns been a great adition with his talent and wonderful music history of not only bluegrass, but his jazz background!!! Also John shares some responibilities on guitar,mandolin and lead and harmony vocals. It doesn't go unsaid that these five gentlemen collectively as a whole have so much fun when they perform by their jokes their humor and their ability to relate to one another and to all of the audiences crowds are just amazed how we have so much fun and still seem to put a lot of work effort and talent into our performance....I would like to welcome you to check out any of our videos on this website or Facebook or YouTube and take a listen to what we have to offer...once again I think you for taking the opportunity to check us out and always remember that you are our "Grand ole Opry', and no matter how many are listening or watching whether it be 2 or 2000,our Performance never changes for you the people we want to provide you with the best entertainment and hospitality that we can and we're so thankful for you all the fans,radio DJs, promoters alike!!!
