Mike Gregory - Bass

"I started playing mandolin when I was 16 after my cousin showed me a few chords. I wanted to start out on banjo, but we only had a  mandolin at the house. Soon after that I started playing with a group called B.G. Express. Within the next few years, I started playing some guitar, banjo, and bass. I have played and hepled out with numerous bands,  such as: Killin' Tyme, Next Generation, Cumberland Gap, Briar Hoppers, James Monroe, Blue Calling, All American Bluegrass Band, Loadstone, Lifeboat Quartet, and Bluetown. I have picked with many great musicians and met a lot of good people along the way.  I want to thank God for blessing me with the talent to play, and my wife, parents, and family for their support thru the years.

Dara Wray - Mandolin and Vocals

"This is my first actual band, and I'm so excited! I was raised on bluegrass, and have loved it my whole life. My Grandpa Lowell Denman was a well-known fiddler, and my father Dave Denman is an amazingly talented musician, and my hero. I've been blessed to grow up around the best musicians in the industry, and be related to extremely gifted pickers as well. When I was 17, my dad started showing me some chords on the guitar, and the rest is history. Between my husband Tony and my dad, I've got the world's best teachers!"

"I started playing bluegrass in my teens at a weekly jam at the Norman Conservation Club. From there I went on to play with Mike Cleveland, Gary Brewer, Troubled Waters, and the Not Too Bad Bluegrass Band. With the Not Too Bad Bluegrass band, I had the honor of representing the State of Indiana and Bluegrass Music at the Library of Congress, and The Kennedy Center in Washington D.C as a part of the Homegrown Concert Series sponsored by the National Folk Arts Center. I am looking forward to great music and even better times with BLUE MAFIA. God Bless."
