The Finley River Boys is a high-energy, acoustic bluegrass band that performs a wide variety of bluegrass, country, folk, and gospel songs. We are now booking for 2021 festivals and events.

The band’s unique, rich blend of tight, four-part harmonies and intricate instrumental breaks captivate audiences everywhere. The Finley River Boys feature Brad Reynolds (upright bass, vocals), Bill Crider (guitar, vocals), Brett Dudenhoeffer (fiddle, mandolin, vocals), and Alan Johnston (banjo, mandolin, vocals).

The Finley River Boys is honored to have been inducted into the Missouri Arts Council as a Touring Performer. We were humbled to receive congratulations from Governor Mike Parsons for this elite achievement.

The band has performed in excess of a hundred shows yearly, including at venues such as Starvy Creek Bluegrass Festival, Silver Dollar City, Jerusalem Ridge Bluegrass Celebration (also featured on the Cumberland Highlanders television show), Missouri State Fair, Ozark Empire Fair, churches, county fairs, theaters, civic centers, schools, and many more events throughout the United States. The band has also been an International Country Gospel Music Association (ICGMA) Band of the Year nominee in 2014 and 2016 and a 2020 International Singer Songwriter Association (ISSA) nominee for Entertainer of the Year and Album of the Year as well as being nominated for “Fans choice” Bluegrass Band of the Year for the 2019 Josie Music Awards.
