ABOUT US


MIKE DADO
BASS GUITAR - ACOUSTIC GUITAR - BANJO - VOCALS - SONGWRITER
After playing guitar and bass in numerous rock bands in the 60's and 70's, Mike quit the music scene to concentrate on family.  In 2000 he picked up where he left off, writing songs and playing guitar, this time in the Americana-Bluegrass vein. Mike performs with "Caught Red Handed" and his bluegrass-Americana four-piece "The Bottom Rung". He lives in North Bend with his wife Cayrol and dog Morty.  He currently serves as the Coos County Surveyor.

KENNY CROES
ACOUSTIC GUITAR - UBASS - BANJO - VOCALS - SONGWRITER
His first musical influences were C&W artists on "Cousin Herb Henson's Tradin' Post", a 1/2-hour show that aired daily on a local TV station in his hometown of Bakersfield, California. Later on folk music swayed his musical direction. Kenny made his living as a musician for nearly 10 years playing coffee houses, pubs and college concerts, even opening for folk acts like Jackson Browne, Tim Weisberg, and Mary McCasln. Eventually he turned to a career in broadcast, but over the years the guitar was never far away. Since moving to Bandon, Oregon he has performed with "Kenny, Bob & Rob" and now "Caught Red Handed". His new passion is playing the 5-string banjo.

BOB SHAFFAR
DOBRO - FIDDLE - VOCALS
Bob took up the fiddle in the mid-80's. He's been an active member of the Oregon Old Time Fiddlers Association since then. Bob began playing the Dobro in 1999. He was a member of “The Gorsetones”, then joined the very popular "Young Bucs Bluegrass” band. He was also a member of the Bluegrass sextet “Hudson Ridge” (check out their CD on Amazon.com or iTunes) . Bob describes himself as "musically promiscuous", so now he's a member of three bands... the country band "Big Creek Rendezvous", "The Bottom Rung" bluegrass group, and "Caught Red Handed". And as if that doesn't keep him busy enough, he's also a lineman for the City of Bandon.
