Brothers became an internet sensation with their amazing banjo performance
These brothers took the internet by storm when they uploaded their cover of “Dueling Banjos.” Known as the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys, these three boys showed off their dexterity with musical instruments.
Based in Lebanon Township, New Jersey, Jonny Mizzone on the banjo, Robbie Mizzone on the fiddle, and the eldest, Tommy Mizzone on the guitar became world-class artists after uploading their video on YouTube.
The clip started with Robbie and Tommy alternating and flaunting their banjo and guitar skills. They even wowed the viewers when they started playing together showing how fast their fingers could strum and shift through the chords.
