Presenting House Concerts in an Intimate Outdoor Setting.

Hailing from Carbondale, Illinois, the Bankesters are a family bluegrass band who skillfully walk the line between the past and present. Dominated by the harmonies of sisters Melissa Triplett, and Emily Bankester, the Bankesters have a delicate touch but they're not mere sweetness: the original songs are sturdily constructed and their cover choices, including White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army" on 2017's Nightbird, are clever.

The Bankesters coalesced in the late 2000s. The group released three independent records -- Amen, There's a Higher Power, Somewhere in Between, Sure as the Sun -- before signing to Compass in 2012.  

The band has released three records on Compass - Looking Forward, Love Has Wheels and Nightbird. The band has been in heavy rotation on Sirius XMs bluegrass junction.  

In addition original material, the band mixes in covers version of some familiar songs, including "Cups (When I'm Gone)," the Anna Kendrick hit single from the 2012 musical comedy Pitch Perfect, "Seven Nation Army" by the White Stripes and "Shine" by Collective Soul.

After a few years in the sprawling spectacle of Los Angeles, Illinois raised brothers Robert and Scott Cerny moved out of their apartments and hit the road. Everything but their instruments were packed into a moving truck and shipped to Tennessee while they performed across Texas and Colorado heading to where they now call home, Nashville. Buzzbands.LA call The Cerny Brothers “a group without any trendy gimmicks, a lead banjo player strumming with the same vigor as if on the electric guitar and simplistic lyrics delivered with strength.”  The bands latest album, Sleeping Giant, was recorded at Bear Creek Studios in Seattle with producers Jerry Streeter and Ryan Hadlock, who are known for their work with Brandi Carlile and The Lumineers. The album signifies a new direction for the band, adding keys and electric guitar, the music is evolving into a true American rock sound while keeping the acoustic folk spirit from their earlier work. The songs on Sleeping Giant deal with becoming a man and finding identity in a constantly changing world, staying rooted in something that can be shaken but not moved, and realizing that we all have a sleeping giant inside of us waiting to be set free. 

"Strong, fast paced guitar work, an incredible string section, flawless vocal harmonies and strong lyricism, all peppered with harmonica can all be found in just the first song, promising a monumental release from this band." - Prelude Press  

"There is authenticity that lacks in a lot of new music that emerges today.  Trust us, its out there - it's just hard to find sometimes.  Enter the Cerny Brothers." -  Diffuser
