ALL FRETS MAGAZINE    Cover & Article

The official national magazine of the Banjo (and other fretted instruments) has decided to feature the Dallas Banjo Band in its Nov-Dec 2018 issue. This being the 30th anniversary of the Band's founding, the article goes into the events leading up to the formation of the Band and also a good biography of Smokey Montgomery and his part in making the Band what it is today.

​You Can't Play a Sad Song On a Banjo

Don Benjamin was more than just a Banjoist  who was one of the first members of the Band when it was founded in 1989.

He also was a skilled Luthier,who helped many of the past and present members of the Band keep their Banjos tuned and looking great.

He also kept the Band upbeat with his anecdotes and stories based on a vast life experience, including his being a retired Air Force Major who was involved with the early days of the Strategic Air Command's effectiveness in providing electronic warfare countermeasures to assure  that our Bombers could avoid enemy detection . It has been a pleasure knowing and plucking with Don, and we  were privileged to play at his memorial service and to offer condolences to Fran, his wife, and the rest of his family.
