The band originates from Carroll County, Maryland and most of them still make it their home. The band has always built its foundation on Bluegrass music, but Bluegrass goes hand in hand with Bluegrass Gospel. You can't have one without the other. Striving for perfect harmony the boys let the instruments fill in the background. With more and more people hearing and learning of their Gospel songs, the Salem Bottom Boys were soon invited to numerous churches to play for services, picnics, and coffee houses. Now they are playing at both Bluegrass and Gospel shows, with neither taking a backseat to the other.
After thirty some years of playing together, The Salem Bottom Boys number one goal is to keep the music fun and enjoyable, and not make it seem like work. Making family and friendship their first priority has always been their rule. The band would like to thank their friends, family, and fans for persuading them to keep moving forward with the music.
The originator of the Band, Jamie started the Salem Bottom Boys in late 1983. As mostly teenagers at the time, they started out just playing family parties, and local events. In 1990, the band regrouped and started playing more seriously with paying gigs.
