Full Cord started as a project between band members upright bass player Todd Kirchner & guitar/mando player Eric Langejans. Soon after, Danny Seabolt, fiddler extraordinaire and luthier joined the band. The newest member is Brian Oberlin on mandolin (formerly of Grasshoppah) . All seasoned bluegrass musicians they wanted to build a musically diverse band using traditional bluegrass instruments.

The band has an extraordinary song base, with songs ranging from traditional country and bluegrass to modern pop hits, big band era tunes and everything in between (and we do mean everything!). With hundreds of songs in their repertoire, they never run out of songs to choose from.

Based in West Michigan, Full Cord has had the privilege of performing all over the state, from private parties and events to breweries, barns and bluegrass festivals.

With the talent of over 100 years combined musical experience, Full Cord brings incredible style to traditional bluegrass. They are introducing bluegrass music to everyone in a way that keeps people coming back for more.

THE BAND

ERIC LANGEJANS

Eric is a multi-instrumentalist with an exceptional ear for music. He has been in many bands including Down Home and Woodpile. Affectionately called “Fast Eric” by his peers, his lighting fast riffs on the guitar are a sight to behold and a joy to listen to.

TODD KIRCHNER

Todd has played bass since his early teens and grew up attending bluegrass festivals. He has honed his skills on the upright bass over the years and has played in several bluegrass bands including Rusty Thimbles, Continental Blue, and Who Hit John?

DANNY SEABOLT

A violin and bow maker by trade, Danny knows fiddles. His electrifying fiddling skills add a whole new dimension to the band's performances in the best way possible. Danny has performed with Max and Ruth Bloomquist, and continues to perform with The Oat Bran Boys at the Red Rooster Tavern in Muskegon. Danny and Todd also volunteer as Muso's at Midwest Banjo Camp in Olivet, Michigan.
