Flatt and Scruggs Tribute Band
Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs met each other as members of Bill Monroe's band, the Blue Grass Boys (gifting the name of a musical genre) in 1946. The two left that band two years later and formed their own group, the Foggy Mountain Boys. Wikipedia writes: "Scruggs' banjo style and Flatt's rhythm guitar style as well as his vocals, gave them a distinctive sound that won them many fans. In 1955, they became members of the Grand Ole Opry."
