Carrying on the Tradition of Old-Time Mountain Music
It was once said, "If you cant drive it, park it." This is our view on bluegrass music.
This is Nitro Ride.
Traditional mountain-style bluegrass and blazing instrumentals, from a passionate group of fine young musicians inspired by the music of artists like the Stanley Brothers, Jimmy Martin, Reno and Smiley, and Bill Monroe
featuring some new originals and special guest Alex Leach!!

"Bluegrass at its best!"
"The best in traditional bluegrass"

"You guys have unique sound.....It's like listening to an old record....!"
"I've never seen anyone play the banjo at that speed and be as clean as you..."
-Phillip Steinmetz, on Tim Zimmerman
