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 1966.
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.
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. An added bonus: Learn to Play the Banjo!! A beginner's workshop will be held Saturday and Sunday mornings. Don't have a banjo? No problem! We'll loan you one for the class.
Primarily 4-string banjos are played at Banjo-Rama. Banjo-Rama proceeds are a benefit for children's charities.
Be sure to attend next year's Banjo-Rama.
