MEET THE BAND

Steven Courtney- acoustic guitar, mandolin, harmoica, lead vocals

Steven Courtney is a performing songwriter who has experienced top notch success. Since 1991, Steven has performed over 4,500 concerts, recorded 26 full-length albums, received 7 Children's Music Web Awards, produced three concert-length performance videos and an award winning Children's TV series.

Mike McElravy- dobro, acoustic guitar, vocals

There is no doubt that Mike McElravy is an incredible musician. Simply put he is musically adventurous. On one hand he lends the Band of Friends his rocking acoustic guitar riffs big enough to fill an arena. On the other hand, he colors the music of Steven Courtney with rich dobro textures and a vibrant steel guitar sound.

Frank Portaro- upright bass, mandoiln, vocals

Frank Portaro is the driving force behind the percussive rhythmic energy of the Band of Friends. Switch hitting between the upright bass and the occasional mandolin part, Frank delivers a wonderful mix of thumping bass lines and sweet mandolin parts blended with his own signature sound.

Alden Hoke- banjo, fiddle, melodica, vocals

The youngest member of the band is also one of the most diverse players. Meet, Alden Hoke. Alden lives and breathes music. In the Band of Friends he draws on celtic influence to create memorable fiddle parts for Steven's songs. Lean in and check out his unique banjo stylings too. Oh yeah, he's also tearing it up on the melodica with cajun tendencies.

Doug Walton- acoustic guitar, 6 sting banjo and mandolin, vocals

As if Mike McElravy wasn't enough! Ok fine. Who's that other guy playing that acoustic guitar like it's on fire? Oh yeah... it's Doug Walton. Carrying most of the rhythm guitar weight, while never one to shy away from playing a bit of Chuck Berry, Doug gives the Band of Friends that extra seal of musical perfection with his diversity on 6 string banjo and the mandolin.
