Photo Gallery | Banjo-Rama Comes Alive April 13-15

Each year the Sacramento Banjo Band sponsors an annual banjo music festival known as Banjo-Rama. World class banjo stars are featured as soloists and in ensembles. Eddie Peabody, probably the most famous banjo player ever, performed at the very first Banjo-Rama. In addition to banjo virtuosos, there are several exciting west coast banjo bands. It's quite a musical spectacle that could just as well have been named the banjo Olympics. These musicians are not just plucking chords like grandpa used to do on the back porch! They are genuine pros! Their fingers and hands are sizzling hot, moving faster than the eye can follow, playing everything from classical to popular music. You'll be surprised and delighted at their imaginative arrangements, versatility, and precise execution. Primarily 4-string banjos are played at Banjo-Rama.

Banjo-Rama proceeds are a benefit for charities like the Shriners Hospitals for Children.

Banjo-Rama 2011 was the most spectacular event ever! The talent line-up was superb, with the most popular 4-string banjo players from across the nation in attendance, and a surprise appearance by Tommy Smothers, who shared his unique humor with us from the audience.

Be sure to attend this year's Banjo-Rama, and be a part of history in the making.
