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.
This year's Banjo-Rama will host Navihanke, a young, vibrant, talented and entertaining group from Ljubljana, Slovenia. They showcase the very best and brightest of Slovenia’s modern culture today! They will be performing at Banjo-Rama as part of the Navihanke USA 2014 Tour, a goodwill cooperation venture between volunteers in the USA and the Republic of Slovenia. Their mission of performing in the USA is to promote awareness and appreciation of Slovenian music and culture and to strengthen friendship ties between the two nations.
Be sure to attend this year's Banjo-Rama, and be a part of history in the making.
