The Speedway Brothers Band


Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin, Fiddle, Dobro.


Back in the 60s,we cruised Speedway Blvd. on Friday or Saturday nights, thus, The Speedway Brothers Band.
We are currently doing a mix of acoustic, folk/rock, country, covers and originals all with a bluegrass flavor.

Currently looking to start or join an acoustic duo or trio doing oldies from those influences listed below.
