It’s not often people can say that someone from their hometown has an opportunity to make it big. But that is exactly what Daytonians can say about their hometown bluegrass band Firecreek, founded by Dayton native Ashley Knapp and Eaton native Cody Doench, both of whom are United States Army veterans.
Some of you may have seen them performing in Dayton and surrounding areas within the past few years, but come March the Firecreek band is Nashville bound to record their first CD after accepting a once in a lifetime opportunity from bluegrass’s current number one band Flatt Lonesome.
“Were excited, were nervous, but most importantly were looking forward to taking this next step and opening this new door.” Says front woman Ashley Knapp.
Whether you like the traditional or the newer sounds of bluegrass, this band has something for every fan to enjoy. The band is holding a fundraiser to help cover their expenses on February 18th at the American Legion located at 126 East 4th street, Franklin, Ohio 45005 from 6-10 pm…everyone is invited to enjoy live bands, auctions, and raffles. The band also has a GoFundMe page where donations are being accepted.
