The band formed about 30 years ago when Tim Terry learned to play the fiddle. Brothers Davis (bass), Roland (mandolin, fiddle and guitar) and Harold (banjo and dobro) were the original members. Davis still plays occasionally, but tends mostly to his logging business. Aside from Tim, Roland and Harold, present members include Johnny Taylor (bass) and Hal Mekeel (guitar).
