Jesse Brock and Gary Filgate found equaled passion for their music the day they met in 1989, joining forces in the Stonewall Bluegrass Band. Years later, Gary brought John Miller and Jesse together at Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival, Brunswick, Maine, circa 2004. Within hours, the three knew a connection had been made and Mainline Express was conceived.
For the past 15 years, Mainline Express has been a group of friends, playing for the pure love of the music. Once or twice a year, they would meet up for a weekend tour, a sort of friends reunion. Now in 2019, the four friends have arrived at a junction, ready to get on board as a full-time touring band.
Mainline Express is a presentation of Bluegrass music which appeals to all ages. With veteran guest bassist Ron Rice, Jesse, Gary and John synchronize to create a groove that is right in the pocket, like a well oiled machine. Add the vocal and harmonies, and the engine is humming.
So, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride through the musical landscape of a genuine American art form.
