Based out of Famville, the Marlboro Boys are named for their home church, Marlboro Free Will Baptist, where most of them also play and sing in the church choir.
Over the past five years, they have built a solid reputation as what Albright calls “the best bluegrass gospel group in the region.” They perform classic and original bluegrass gospel.
“They really bring out the crowds, too,” Albright added.
Band members include brothers Joseph and Steve Sutton on guitar and banjo respectively; Bobby Harper on guitar; Reed Kennedy on bass; Tim Shelton on mandolin; and Tim Tyner on dobro. Jason Tyson is lead vocalist, although most of the Boys also take a turn or two singing. Randy Blalock is their sound engineer.
The Marlboro Boys have released two CDs, God’s Only Son and First Time Around, both of which will be available at their show.
