…….About Us

Acoustic Sound Hounds

“Original Country-Grass”

The four person band consists of Combine residents Craig Dennie on banjo and Phil Boyd on bass; and Cottonwood residents Jeff Gray on rhythm guitar and Pam Gray on mandolin.  Phil’s brother, Wallace, retired from the band after extended illness.  Performances often include ten year old Jacie Gray as a guest vocalist. 

 

The band was formed in mid-2008 when Pam began playing the mandolin.  Phil then put down his guitar and began playing bass, and brother Wallace joined in with harmonica and guitar.  Pam’s husband Jeff joined the group as rhythm guitar, and the band was complete by 2009 when Craig joined the group with his banjo.
