PRSB Feb 2023

A special thanks to those of you who continue to show support.

Piper Road Spring Band opened our 2023 season of SpringBand Music at the Melrose Center stage on Saturday 25 February. We had come to the Gainesville Florida area for four days of intense rehearsals for a recording project (tentatively titled “The Gainesville Session”) to Celebrate 50 Years, scheduled for release this spring.

Piper Road Spring Band will be returning a familiar line-up as we celebrate 50 years in 2023. Bob Mason (mandolin), "Black"Barry Riese (guitar), and Billy Kangaroo (washboard) were together at the beginning in 1973. They are joined by Randal Harrison (fiddle) and Mark Hembree (upright bass).

In our 50th year the "party" plans to still be rolling along. We will continue to hit the road bringing our unique flavor of bluegrass/swing to an event near you.

If you are planning on being in the area contact Kangaroo for details.

Dates for our summer tour are coming in and you can book us for your private party.

Mark your calendar for 2023 and we hope to see you stop by to say hello. Try to make a visit with us a part of your summer plans. Plan to come join us in the fun!
