About the Band
Matt & George and Their Pleasant Valley Boys have been performing traditional bluegrass the old fashioned way, into a single microphone since 2006. They entertain for weddings, corporate events and parties all over Northern California, including regular appearances at the Dixon Lambtown Festival and the big Father's Day Festival in Grass Valley, as well as on ABC Television. They have also pleased crowds at the IBMA ‘Fan Fest’ in Kentucky, on Louisiana’s Abita Opry, at the International Bluegrass Music Museum’s River of Music Party in Kentucky, and even taken bluegrass abroad to Vietnam and France. The Pleasant Valley Boys provide fun for all, with hot instrumental licks and sweet vocal harmonies, backed by a tight rhythm section, all packed into a fast paced, entertaining music show like you’ve never seen before.
Matt & George and Their Pleasant Valley Boys is made up of all original members Matt Dudman, mandolin; Fiddlin’ Jim Allison, fiddle; George Goodell, banjo; Mark “Cousin Rainwater” Eagleton, string bass; and Miss Jenny Lynn, guitar. All members sing.
