Our Story

Streamliner Bluegrass Band is a traditional bluegrass-gospel band from Hiawatha, West Virginia. The band was founded in 2015 by Marc Maynard along with his son Chris Maynard.

The band features father Marc Maynard on banjo, son Chris Maynard on lead guitar, David Bowling of Lexington, KY on the bass, and Chandler Beavers, of Greenbrier, WV on the mandolin.

The members of Streamliner have had the opportunity to play a large variety of bluegrass festivals throughout the United States. Some of their most memorable performances include sharing the stage with bluegrass legends Rhonda Vincent, Daily & Vincent, Ralph Stanley, Ralph Stanley II, Melvin Goins, Mike Snider, James Monroe, Bill Monroe, Larry Sparks, Delnora Reed, etc. Some of the festivals they have played at are Bean Blossom, Uncle Pen Days, Starvey Creek Bluegrass Festival in MO, Yeehaw Junction in FL, Ralph Stanley’s Homecoming Festival in VA, Summersville Bluegrass Festival in WV, The Mountaineer Opry House in Milton, WV, just to name a few.

One of the proud moments of Streamliner Bluegrass Band was when Chris Maynard (who is 14 years old) was asked to share the Grand Ole Opry stage for a performance with Melvin Goins and Grand Ole Opry member Mike Snider.

While the band enjoys entertaining audiences with hard drivin’ traditional bluegrass music, concert-goers will also enjoy bluegrass gospel songs.

Marc, Chris, David and Chandler look forward to an amazing year of traveling, meeting new fans, and pickin’ some tried and true traditional bluegrass and gospel music.
