The Annapolis-based Other Band formed over the course of several jam sessions and has been together three years. The other members include a couple engineers and an entomologist. Two are retired, one is semi-retired, and the youngest is 66.
The band got its unique name at a show where another group was also playing. Dickey said they overheard someone say, “That’s the other band.”
The Other Band is composed of Mike Siegert on mandolin, Dickey on banjo, Karl Neidhardt on bass and John Shields on guitar and lead vocalist who are shown in the below photo rehearsing at Dickey’s home last week.
