The San Francisco Banjo Band is in its 47th year of entertaining the Bay Area. The Band was founded by two exceptional banjo players, Ray Bell and Phil Smith. Not only did they entertain with music,
Ray, an accomplished magician, would amaze the audience by performing his magic tricks. They played every Friday night at Molloy's Tavern in Colma. The band continues to play at Molloy's Tavern the first Saturday of
each month from 6:00pm to 8:30pm, with no cover charge.
The Band also plays at the 16 Mile House in Millbrae (Call 16 mile house for schedule).
Thanks to the founding members, the San Francisco Banjo Band continues their legacy and has played at Convention Centers, Stage shows, Political events, the San Francisco Giants, Senior centers, good time sing-alongs and many other types of events.
Current membership is not limited to banjos. The band is proud to have trombone, trumpet, accordion, and mandolin players, and not to forget, our accomplished gutbucket/washboard virtuoso!
