Our Story

Adam Traum was raised in a musical family, which shaped his musical world-view. His father Happy Traum, a mainstay of the Greenwich Village folk scene moved the family up to Woodstock, N.Y. in the mid-1960's, where he was raised in a hotbed of roots music. Traum was surrounded by progenitors of great blues, bluegrass and folk styles and even had an impromptu casual jam with Bob Dylan as a teenager. As a young musician Traum’s irreverent teenaged spirit reveled in blues-driven rock, but in his early twenties Adam got bit by the acoustic Americana bug and there was no turning back.

David Thom originally hails from the great state of Michigan and is a stalwart session player and performer. His dynamic chops and sweet vocal sound are accompanied by a warm onstage presence that makes you feel right at home. He has played with many bluegrass greats and
 was the first guitarist and singer in the revival of the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience. Thom is also an accomplished mandolin player. "That Old Familiar," his most recent solo release was produced and played on by Grammy‐winner Laurie Lewis, receives national airplay and rave reviews. Thom writes new songs and mines jewels from the past. Drawing from both bluegrass and country, he takes both sensibilities and blends them into a sound that is fresh yet timeless.

Jack Hines is a classically trained bassist and long-time music educator. He has great jazz chops and is equally at home holding down the bottom end while playing blues, bluegrass, folk and country styles. He's funky as hell when it counts and he plays a deep groove! He also studied Brazilian music and plays the Viola de Gamba.


In early 2013 Adam Traum started regularly playing with fellow Mosey Boys, David Thom, who co-produced Traum's CD "Just Like Home," and Jack Hines who Traum started casually playing music together. Things clicked and they quickly became a musical force to be reckoned with. Before long the trio decided to make their partnership official and came up with the band name the Mosey Boys.

The Sonoma-based acoustic power trio blends Americana genres featuring bluegrass, country blues, rockabilly and folk styles. The Mosey Boys blend stellar vocals with outstanding musicianship and always put on a lively show. If you have a chance to catch this unique and fun Americana band don’t miss the opportunity. They are currently in production of their first CD as a band.
