About Neal:

I'm Neal, and I play fiddle. My background is americana, bluegrass and folk but lately I've been exploring some other styles and particularly some fun rhythmic bowing patterns.
I like all styles, especially branching out from the conventional. My current goal is to put fiddle into some indie rock or hip hop style groups. Or anything else fun that happens to come along.
I started The Flashband Project (the original name) as a way to meet new musicians and build the community of people that play. I hope you enjoy it, and anytime you have ideas, feedback or suggestions let me know!
