We are River Boy


River Boy is an all-acoustic band based in Charleston, SC blending original Bluegrass and Americana tunes with traditional ones.  Their first album, self-titled, received airplay across the country and internationally on radio stations like WNCW in North Carolina, WDVX in Tennessee, WAMU in Washington, D.C., KVMR in California and Grand 101 in Ontario.  Each band member brings his special ingredients to the mix making the River Boy experience both familiar and new to the audience.  

Shayne Floyd leads the group with rhythm guitar, lead vocals and song-writing.  Kenny Barnes – a bluegrass legend in the Charleston area – plays the upright bass and sings lead and harmony vocals.  Tom DeLorge trades off banjo and resonator guitar (aka Dobro), and Dr. Jared Fisher plays mandolin along with some harmony vocals.  This bands insists on having a good time and you will feel it in their live performance.  River Boy plans to release a 2nd album of all original songs in 2017, as well as a 3rd album of Traditional Bluegrass and Americana cover songs.
