Billy Jones, Phil Skipper and Mike Orlando are the Broken Arrows.

Long time industry veterans having performed countless gigs at festivals, clubs and theaters, the three members are multi-instrumentalists and songwriters in their own regard. the sounds created by the band merges years of history  performing blues, bluegrass and jazz and includes hand-written songs and instrumentals - tales of South Georgia where Skipper was raised, a sympathetic and kind-hearted political lens of Billy Jones, and the instrumental view of Orlando. The instrumentation consists of mandolins, banjo, acoustic guitar, upright bass, eclectic drums - classic Americana instrumentation used in unique ways. Instruments fluidly change hands among the band members.
