The Angel City Bluegrass Boys are a young group of Angelenos steeped in the stylings of traditional bluegrass. Combining tight harmonies with solid instrumental base, The Angel City Bluegrass Boys are as compelling as they are lonesome. Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Greg Fleischut (mandolin, vocals) and David Elsenbroich (guitar, vocals) joined forces with Southern California natives Zac Sokolow (banjo, vocals) and Jake Faulker (bass) to form the group. Zac and Greg have been steeped in the California bluegrass scene since they were old enough to hold their instruments. Zac, the son of legendary educator and multi-instrumentalist Fred Sokolow, started playing bluegrass festivals with his dad and consistently winning banjo competitions when he was only 9 years old. Similarly, Greg made a name for himself as one of the best young flatpick guitarists in the Bay Area, learning bluegrass when he was just 7 years old. Greg went on study music in Los Angeles which is also where he picked up the mandolin with the Bluegrass Boys. The Angel City Bluegrass Boys currently play regularly throughout the Los Angeles area and are currently working on their next studio album.
