Playing traditional and alt-bluegrass, Sweetcake Mountain is Steve Bacher on banjo, Ed Spallina on bass, Alan Zinser on mandolin and Craig Rogoff on fiddle. Sweetcake Mountain reflects Steve Bacher’s extraordinary musical sensibilities paced by Ed Spallina’s steady hand on the reins that can only come from a seasoned professional musician. Alan Zinser’s mandolin provides the rhythmic back-beat to songs done in mountain string music overdrive. The latest permanent addition to the band is Craig Rogoff whose fiddle work makes the music weep and soar by turns.  Sweetcake Mountain & Friends is privileged to feature extraordinary local guest musicians like Lou Florio and Mat Kastner on guitar.
