Steve Dilling plays like he was born and raised in a crib where only Earl Scruggs and Tony Rice played on the twirling mobile above him. In love with the banjo at 10, playing by 12, starting The Bass Mountain Boys, then on to the Lonesome River Band, Steve's career has had a solid, steady trajectory of success and respect. Steve's Carolina-awesome banjo playing and hilarious emcee work is one of the main reasons you would always go out see him during his 20 years he played with Russell Moore and IIIrd Tyme Out. Steve certainly brought his talent to the forefront of the bluegrass community with IIIrd Tyme Out, but his work with Sideline allows Steve to show audiences that he's the real deal in any setting.

Born in 1981 and raised in Saxapahaw, NC, Brian grew up in a musical family. He got started on mandolin at age three, and graduated to banjo at thirteen. His father, Mike, now with Al Batten & Bluegrass Reunion, was a long time member of the Bass Mountain Boys. It was with that group that Brian first played on stage. His favorite banjo players include Earl Scruggs and Jim Mills, and his picking reflects their precise, dynamic style. Brian is also a master of the Scruggs style of finger picked guitar. His wife's grandfather, award-winning North Carolina banjoist/vocalist A. L. Wood, was also a major influence. Brian's hard-driving mandolin style and heartfelt vocals are the centerpiece of the Sideline sound. Brian's hobbies include hunting and picking, and he's a natural-born mechanic. When he's not playing music, Brian can be found in Chapel Hill where he works as a service technician for the University of North Carolina.
Daniel joins Sideline on fiddle and vocals. Daniel is Brian's brother, so he grew up in the same house saturated in bluegrass music. Daniel is primarily a mandolin player. He started playing around with the mandolin during his high school years and adapted quickly. In 2004 he joined Honi Deaton & Dream with whom he toured the country. During his stint with Honi he filled in with Steve and IIIrd Tyme Out on a few shows where he got to fulfill his dream and perform at the Grand Ole Opry. In 2005 he joined Jeanette Williams group and played out the summer. In 2007 he started working in law enforcement which he continues to do, so he played with a local group closer to home, Constant Change. Off and on Daniel has loved experimenting with other instruments such as the banjo, guitar, and fiddle. The fiddle is his favorite although it is the most difficult. While he still continues progressing on the instrument his style adds taste to the instilled dynamics that Sideline holds true to.
