The Alhambra Valley Band has been contributing talent and energy to the California Bluegrass scene since 1986.

Also known for award-winning original material and vocal harmony arrangements, this Northern-California-based ensemble of roots musicians is spreading the gospel according to Bluegrass to an ever-grooving base of fans and converts.

Lynn Quinones is an award winning songwriter and has been a champion of the Bay Area bluegrass scene for years. She combines a deep reverence for traditional music with the creativity and skill to experiment with new sounds and rhythms. The distinctive melodies in her compositions, her “ That’s what I’m talkin’ about!” rhythm guitar style, and her considerable vocal talent form the Alhambra Valley Band’s signature sound.

AVB’s co-founder, Jill Cruey, is a gifted fiddler with an impressive knowledge of bluegrass and old time music styles.

Mandolin player, Dan Large adds his own innovative touch to the AVB’s original material, singing lead or providing baritone harmonies for the bands highly regarded vocal “trio”.

Mitch Polzak is comfortable in styles from rockabilly to honky-tonk and provides the driving banjo sound for the AVB.

More than just a top-notch bass player, Bruce Campbell brings a sense of humor, fun and balance to the AVB. Bruce was just elected as a Director of the Board of the California Bluegrass Association.
