"There's this great duality to our band," reflects Greensky Bluegrass mandolinist, vocalist, and songwriter Paul Hoffman. "We're existing in a few different places at once: we're a bluegrass band and a rock band, we're song-driven and interested in extended improvisation." "We play acoustic instruments," adds dobro player Anders Beck, "but we put on a rock 'n roll show. We play in bigger clubs and theaters, there's a killer light show, and we're as loud as your favorite rock band. It's not easy to make five acoustic instruments sound like this -- it's something we've spent years working on." From these seemingly irreconcilable elements, the five members of Greensky Bluegrass have forged a defiant, powerful sound that, while rooted in classic stringband Americana, extends outwards with a fearless, exploratory zeal. The tension and release between these components -- tradition and innovation, prearranged songs and improvisation, acoustic tones and electric volume -- is what makes them so thrillingly dynamic.Tickets Save
