About Us
”Johnny

”Johnny

”Banjo,

Growing up and living in the Dayton, OH area, Johnny was surrounded and influenced by the area’s Bluegrass music scene. He began playing the banjo in the early 80’s after the passing of his father and grandfather who were also huge fans of Bluegrass music.

Johnny’s hard driving, traditional playing style has been greatly influenced by banjo masters Mike Lilly, J.D. Crowe and Earl Scruggs, just to name a few! When asked who is his favorite banjo player, his answer is quick: “Mike Lilly, J.D. Crowe, Earl Scruggs, but the list doesn’t stop there!”

Johnny plays Gibson banjos; currently a 1926 Gibson TB-2 Conversion model and a 1990 Gibson RB-3 reissue. He does some of his own set up work but also values his friend Charlie Cushman’s (Earl’s of Leicester) set up expertise.

Johnny works for the railroad as a locomotive engineer and when he’s not “pickin’ the banjer”, his other interest is his Harley-Davidson motorcycles! He also has a strong devotion for his country and served in the US Army.

”Bass,

Jim plays bass for the group and adds some baritone vocals. Unlike the other members, Jim’s interest in bluegrass music came a little later. He was 31 years old before even listening to any down home type of music. Jim’s wife, Joan, of 44 years talked him into going to a “Bluegrass Festival” one weekend with her relatives. Joan was born and riased in Morehead, Kentucky and wanted to hear some music that she was raised with.

Jim was hooked on the music from the beginning. Two days after the festival, he bought a banjo andstarted lessons. Eventually he started playing the upright bass, and played in a couple of local bands for the next 20 years.

Jim actually quit playing in 2006, other than an occasional jam session. In 2016 he was asked if would consider playing again. After knocking the rust off, he realized how much he had missed ray ban outlet it. Today, Jim’s bass playing and singing is an integral part of The Vintage Ramblers.

”Brian

”Brian

”Mandolin,

Brian is an artist at enunciating exciting expressive harmony lines that give expression to the soulfulness and meaning of bluegrass and old-time music. He also has a knack for finding just the right sympathetic runs and fills that give body to the band’s songs by supporting the lyrics of songs rather than drawing attention from them, whether on guitar or mandolin. If Brian were the worst musician in his family, which he is not, he would still be one of the best in the country. He grew up listening to his father, the great banjoist Howard Aldridge and the many friends who came to pick with him; like Bill Monroe, Sid Campbell, Frank Wakefield, Jack Casey, and the like.

Early on Brian became a fixture of the traditional bluegrass scene around the central Ohio area. Brian’s exceeding abilities with harmony and timing as well as arranging and song selection have contributed mightily to fleshing out the type of material that the Vintage Ramblers feature in their performances—that is the old “chestnuts” from the true vine with the tawny bark of time left unremoved.

Brian also has a very successful gutter business in the central Ohio area, is known as a “court certified” expert on vintage mandolins in which he frequently deals. He draws strength from his faith, and finds the joy in providing love and support to his daughters and family.

”Charlie

”Charlie

”Guitar,

In addition to playing the guitar and singing all the parts, Charlie handles the majority of our MC work.   He brings a passion for bluegrass music culminating from a lifetime of playing.  Charlie is a multi-instrumentalist and has played with many bands over the years; he has traveled most of the United States entertaining folks with traditional bluegrass music.  He has been a sought after front man, guitarist, bassist, and banjoist.  Don’t let him fool you, Charlie can also play some mandolin and fiddle.  At each and every performance, his enthusiasm is infectious to the members of The Vintage Ramblers and to our audiences.

Charlie makes his home in Dayton, Ohio with his wife Wilma, also a bluegrass vocalist and long-time bluegrass enthusiast.
