The band called Matthew Adam and The Black Ribbon Outlaws was formed in 2019.  The band is a group of talented local musicians, some life long friends, some new friends, but all family.  It’s more than a group of talented guys doing what they love, it’s the fun we have while playing that makes this project such a joy to be part of!
