Bio: Deep in the Northwoods of Wisconsin a group of pissed off bluegrass pickers decided they wanted to change bluegrass for all mankind. They failed to do so. Now, they just continue their barnstorm of the Mid-West in hopes of one day to play a song so fast, that it actually disrupts the space-time...See Full Bio
“The five-man group from Eau Claire, Wis., the Evergreen Grass Band, will return to Iowa City to play fast bluegrass/punk-rock. Some of its musical influences include Slit Lip Rayfield, Smashing Pumpkins, and Metallica. "There are lots of different styles of bluegrass, and we play a very nontraditional style," said Tim Litscher, the guitarist and vocalist of the band. "There are a lot of punk-rock elements in our music that make it a little bit different." The members of the group play guitar, acoustic bass, mandolin, banjo, and harmonica. Litscher said the group plays covers and original songs and produces a multidimensional show, mixing covers of songs with improvised solos and various harmonial structures. "We don't limit our songwriting to any one area; we talk about life and the things we find interesting, and beautiful, and fun," Litscher said. "[Concert-goers] should wear their drinking and dancing shoes — we play some fast bluegrass," Litscher said.”
