Heavy Traffic is a four piece traditional bluegrass band based out of New Jersey. Heavy Traffic plays weddings, parties and festivals in the tri-state area. Founding member Earl Karlsen on mandolin hosts The Bluegrass Express radio show Saturday mornings on 89.1 WFDU out of Farleigh Dickinson University. The band’s hard drive can be attributed to the savvy Scruggs style banjo pickin’ of Arnie Reisman. Heavy Traffic’s high lonesome sound comes from the tenor vocals of Jeff Propert who also compliments the group with his tasteful rhythm and lead guitar. This bluegrass quartet is powered by Guy Leatherman's solid bass.
