Tracy Denson

Bass, vocals

Tracy proves that although patience may be a virtue, a good whack to the back of Sebie's head keeps her stress level low. With a voice as clear as a mountain stream, this New Mexico farmer's daughter can provide vocals to soothe the savage beast. Stacy - oops - TRACY provides a solid backbone with a steady beat on the ukulele bass. It's easy to see that Tracy, similar to Dolly Parton, has a couple of assets anyone wants in a bluegrass band... a wonderful voice and a love of country music.

Tracy can hold a note longer than the bank can hold your mortgage. A true testament to Tracy's skills can be found in her 'ear-splitting'.... no, that doesn't sound good... how about 'awe-inspiring' rendition of "RUBY". It'll leave you gasping for air.
 

Sebie Denson

Guitar, Mandolin, vocals

Sebie (better known as Mr. Tracy Denson) plays guitar, sings a bit and talks...and talks...and talks. Although one might think that Sebie is occasionally attempting - and succeeding at - a very sad stand-up comic routine, never let it be said that he lacks energy. He has, in fact, been voted The Wiggliest Man in Bluegrass five years in a row (this fact, oddly, has not made it into Google's database yet).

Sebie has recently begun wearing an outfit on stage that looks like a combination between overalls and a kilt- an Overkilt ©. This event coincides with the stock market crash of February/March 2020. Most people blame this on coronavirus fears, but we know the real reason.

Willing to do almost anything to please an audience, the band's "bail bond" fund has been seriously depleted for years. Many of the wardens are sympathetic however, and we meet a lot of nice people during our rehearsals there. We do an annual event in Canon City, flanked by many guards. Now you know why (although the exact details are still tied up in court).
 

John Ramsey

Banjo, vocals

John Ramsey is playing banjo for our little group. John is the undisputed bluegrass ukulele champion of the Front Range. John is also a talented multi-instrumentalist, but he prefers to only play banjo publicly. He has found that people don't put a lot of mental pressure on the banjo player.

Content with his musical anonymity, John wows our audience with bluesy, rock-a-billy banjo as only he can. Talented luthier, musician and yes, even vocalist, watch him closely and listen even closer. John is a 3-time Colorado State Banjo Champion - really!

Oddly, we've never seen him eat, and no picture of him has ever been successfully developed. Oh wait, that's someone else.

 

Lewis Mock

Fiddle, Dobro, Vocals

The newest member of the ACME ensemble, Lewis was the solo guitar/entertainer for the Broadmoor Hotel for many, many years. Lewis played everyday in a tuxedo. He is now bringing his fashion sense and fiddling to ACME. His lifelong love of bluegrass and his charismatic smile are right at home with the band.

Lewis is also a monster jazz guitarist, but we forbid him from playing that kind of stuff with us. Come on now... 3 chords will do just fine. Don't get above your raisin'! We do allow his fiddle and dobro though!

The shortest member of the group, Lewis elevates ACME to a whole new stature with positive attitude and clothing options! Lewis has been clothing optional for years now!!
 

Les Irvin

Mandolin, vocals

Voted as one of the top 6 banjo players in the band for 3 of the last 5 years, Les is diligently honing his vocal skills with Acme. Growing up in Iowa as a fan of anything but bluegrass, he was transformed instantly when David Bromberg and band launched into "Yankee's Revenge" at a festival. He caught the bluegrass bug (and other viruses) right then and there and has only recently finished the series of shots to resolve the issue.

Of course, with the warm weather approaching, we'll see Les working hard on his new Fall line of Daisy Duke 'man shorts' to be revealed in a few months. He is working on a "speedo-esque" swim trunk. He's been toying with the name. Some of the ideas are: "Junkyard Bunchers ©", "Crack 'ers ©", and "Wedgymacallit ©" Boy, we can't wait to see that.
