Lonnie Slone

Lonnie Slone grew up in Brooklyn at a time where the Mandolin was about as popular as deep dish pizza, ice-fishing and the Dallas Cowboys. He was nonetheless determined to play in a band and figured there’d be little competition in the lineup.  He quickly rose through the ranks in the Jewish bluegrass instrument players community where rivalry amongst the three of them was fierce. After realizing that if he put on a hat and sunglasses he looked cool enough for no one to care if he was really playing or not, he’s been an essential ingredient to the Fretomology sound.
