About the Friends & Family Band When Melissa Thoma hosts her musical family in Little Rock, they are joined by Ron Hughes and Johnny Scroggins; who altogether make the Friends and Family Band. Mark Bair, banjo and guitar picker from Pryor, OK; Rex Bair, mandolin player from Maumelle, AR; Ron Hughes, guitar, banjo, fiddle and bass player and lead singer for the Greasy Greens; Johnny Scroggins, bass playing prodigy who has played with the likes of Leon Russell and Jerry Lee Lewis—and he’s a retired jet pilot to boot! Melissa Thoma provides vocal harmony, having sung everything in Central Arkansas from bluegrass to opera. Together we are the Friends and Family Band. And since everyone is probably either friend or family, we welcome any and all who want to make mountain music!
