Chad Darou & Stealing Time are breaking new ground in the bluegrass world. Currently in the studio working on their next recording, the band is creating a sound that reflects their eclectic musical backgrounds. Band leader, Chad Darou, is a fine dobro and banjo player who has had the pleasure of touring with such greats as Bill Keith, Bill Harrell, Gibson Brothers, James King and many others. Steeped in traditional bluegrass, the band’s hard driving covers will get your feet stomping. While the bands youth allows them the ability to include more progressive sounds with their award winning songwriting. Stealing Time’s overall approach to each show is to treat them as individual performances. There are many times when the venue calls for traditional music. Although they are a northern band they can bring the drive like you only here in the south. Other venues are looking for the more progressive “jam band” sound. Well they not only can do it, but pride themselves on their ability to write and perform some of the finest material with crisp clean harmony vocals and the intense picking that only musicians of this calibre can bring.
Chad Darou and Stealing Time is a name to watch for at events and concerts around the country. Take the time to catch their show, you’ll come away glad you did and find yourself wanting more and more.
