Branded Bluegrass is a talented, energetic band from Kokomo Indiana. They have been around the local scene for years, but have regrouped and rekindled the fire to perform and spread great bluegrass music throughout! Most of the members have played in or with other bands such as Jimmy Martin, Marty Raybon, Doyle Lawson, James Monroe, IIIrd Tyme Out, Mac Weisman to name a few and many other local acts as well. They love all bluegrasser’s, but are inspired by the traditionalist like Flatt and Scruggs, Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin, Larry Sparks as well as new acts like Blue Highway, New Found Road, Lonesome River Band and many others. The members of Branded Bluegrass show off their talents often switching up instruments without missing a beat! Normal lineup consists of; Derek Dillman on banjo. He was Jimmy Martins last banjo player and is one of the best musicians around. Albert Swain on fiddle. He is an 8 time Indiana state fiddle Champion and 2 time Kentucky fiddle Champion! Larry Norfleet on guitar. He has a powerful rhythm and plays some lead. Jesse Norfleet on dobro with some lonesome fills and exciting leads. Tristen Norfleet on mandolin with some great mandolin chops and Monroe like leads. Mike Martin drives the boys on doghouse bass and sometimes plays the mountain dulcimer. The boys are talented vocally as well! You won’t get bored listening to one guy sing all the time as they switch up and sing lead on different songs and have great harmony!
