Randall Couch, here is the finest bass players I've ever played with.  Randall's timing is like a metronome!  Randall has a diverse background in playing bluegrass to blues!  Randall played with several bluegrass bands and other types of genres as well.  He recently played in a group called the "Graybyrds" before playing with DBB. Randall is also extremely talented in singing mostly our baritone vocals.  His voice rounds out the sound and pulls the vocals all together.  When you see Randall, give him a big ole....... "Hello"

The first band that Brad played with was in Harmony N.C. where he was raised. He then played with Garland Lambert from Union Grove N.C. After
a few years he started playing with Walter Patterson's band Carolina Grass from Hiddenite N.C. he played with them for several years.  Brad has played with numerous bands and won multiple banjo contests at fiddlers conventions.
