Lucky Drive Bluegrass Band

Book the band for your next event in the Bay Area.

Lucky Drive Bluegrass Band distills the best of bluegrass down to its core elements: tight harmonies, driving rhythm, and fiery solos. Anchored by Karen Wilhoyte's thumping bass, the band features Mike Wilhoyte's creative yet traditional guitar playing, Eric Embry's Stanley-style banjo, and Nicole Snider's definitive mandolin chop. But with four singers, the vocals are the true highlight. Their sets are filled with a variety of styles: Eric and Nicole's classic country numbers, the Wilhoytes' close duets, Mike's subtly delivered songs, Karen's upbeat traditionals, Nicole's soulful solos, and Eric's crooners. Their clever vocal stacks bring a new twist to old favorites.

As a bluegrass quartet, the band can easily fit in to any setting, and renowned Bay Area fiddler Paul Shelasky often joins them for a fuller sound. Based along the Marin/Sonoma county line, they can easily travel to the greater San Francisco Bay Area (including Sonoma and Napa).
