The Mizzone Brothers, a.k.a. the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys, "Dueling Banjos"

"Oh, just some kids trying to play 'Dueling Banjos.'"

The Sleepy Man Banjo Boys are from New Jersey. And that bed frame is almost suspiciously perfect.

I definitely read the headline wrong at first and thought we were talking about this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20G17K_0ghU

Let's start a Hairpin jug band!

I can play banjo or guitar.

there's a third brother! he's out of frame the whole time and plays the fiddle.

@serenityfound

@blahstudent He pops up towards the end. Me: "WOAH HEY THERE'S ANOTHER ONE"

nico ani

@@serenityfound He's in the middle too! Along with the Millenium Falcon....

@blahstudent I loved the surprise! third brother! Just when I though they couldn't cram any more talent into one video...there he was

@serenityfound

I love Dueling Banjos so much, even if it does often make me think of Deliverance. This is such a charming way to start the day...

The banjos. Not the Deliverance bit.

FACT: Men who play banjo must have long beards. Check back in with me in a few years, kiddos!

I've always wondered what The Timbertoes would look like in real life.

I am dying from a dose of triple cute.

I love that I got to have a tiny freakout at both 1:23 and 2:15. THERE'S THREE OF THEM!!!!!! and omg all of their gorgeous wood furniture...

This makes me wish Mister had more time to play music, because he has a banjo and I fucking love banjo.

Thanks for reminding me what I can't do after decades of instrument ownership.

@Tulletilsynet
You and me both.

Hm... I totally wanted to learn how to play the banjo up until I saw that video. Those kids have fast fingers.

They're adorable. How much does a tiny jug band cost? I want one.

The weirdest things make my days awesome. This is one.

This is the absolute best reinterpretation on the Hanson Brother's theme in the history of ever.

Goddamn, I love the banjo and bluegrass so much, it nearly frightens me. A local bar does bluegrass nights and a friend commented that she saw me smile more in that one evening than she had ever seen before.

The Millenium Falcon is a great addition to the decor, but then you watch this video and there is also a stuffed wildcat or something??

Veronica Mars is smarter than me

@bb Okay. This video is available in 1080p. Here is what I think I have seen in this child's room (whichever child's room it is). Feathers from a dead turkey. A rifle. Framed vintage cowboy comics. Millennium Falcon. A QUILL of freaking ARROWS hanging on the bed post. Baseball memorabilia in multiple forms. Matching wooden bed, dresser, mirror, and bookshelf, probably hand-made by Dad. A lot of books on the bookshelf, including what appears to be a fair-sized Hardy Boys collection. Sign with a hunting dog on it. What looks like it is probably another house maybe fifty feet away from their window. Also a light fixture which is probably made of deer antlers.

WHAT. Basically what kind of tableau is Mom trying to paint here, is my question.

Veronica Mars is smarter than me

Aaaaaaaaaaaah, I love this! I love the banjo!

OMG I found these guys a few months back while searching for some banjo stuff, and they're adorable! So good! I love it when my good taste is confirmed by and Edith post. ;)

Useful information, on account of the author. And disconcerting in my opinion now, but normally the usefulness and importance is enormous. Thanks to you again and all the best!

Thanks for posting this informative article. This is a good read for me. I do wish there were more people like you around on the inter webs. Not many people are careful with their words, including myself sometimes. 400-point breadboard
