More Info

Longleaf Drive is a local Old Time, and Bluegrass band. The name "Longleaf" is inherited from our local Longleaf pines, and the suffix "Drive" is for the punching rhythm this band produces! The Band consists of four members: Chris Willman - Guitar / Lead Vocals Ricky Stanfield - Mandolin Justin Wright - Banjo Dan Johnston - Bass / Backup Vocals The band originated in 2018 when Ricky Stanfield, and Chris Willman reunited after Ricky saw a video of Chris sitting in with Roland White at the Station Inn. This reignited his love for Bluegrass, and Acoustic Music. They began playing mostly as a Duo, and still often do, however the band has grown allowing more members to join in, and achieve a fuller sound. This band loves to improvise over the songs they play so you'll hear some real Florida Fresh Pickin! They are known for playing many traditional tunes, as well as some classics! Their song list ranges from the Grateful Dead to Jimmy Martin, with many stops between, and some originals to top it off!
