Northwest Territory bluegrass music

About Me


Mike Gorrell is the founding member of the band and writes the majority of the band's original material. He is the band's manager, emcee, lead and harmony vocalist, and an accomplished guitarist and mandolin player. For 10 years, he was a member of the Whetstone Run Bluegrass Band and currently produces, engineers, and hosts the Picks n Bows Radio Show. 

Darla Evans sings lead and harmony vocals and plays guitar, bass and mandolin. Her vocals are a highlight of any Northwest Territory performance 
and her stage presence adds enjoyment not only for the audience but the rest of the band. Her past credentials include Leather Britches, Border Ride and 14 past years in Northwest Territory.

Randall Boring plays banjo and sings harmony vocals. His hard drive and precise timing have kept him busy throughout the years with some very fine bands such as Whetstone Run, Bob Paisly and the Southern Grass, Lower Forty Grass, and Dakota.

Bill Sparks plays bass and has been a part of the central Ohio music scene for many years . He played and recorded with several bands in the past, including Northwest Territory, and adds that solid bottom sound and impeccable timing that is so important to any ensemble.
