The Glimmer Grass Band / Bio

The Glimmer Grass Band is a diverse group of friends that happen to love playing Acoustic Folk, Americana and Bluegrass music. The members of the group grew up playing the New Jersey Shore bar scene in various electric rock bands. Bunker and Dave from “Moskito Coast”, John and Bob from “Just Passin' Thru”, Chris from the “Rum Runners” and “Blue Highways”. Chris and Bunker still perform regularly with Blue Highways and our hard driving banjo player, Tom Stevenson, is also member of the Country Music Hall of Fame “Jim Murphy Band”.

Performing since 2004 and although the lineup has changed a bit over the years, the Jam Grass or “new grass” style has been consistent. The band regularly draws from various genres of music and applies a roots music twist using traditional folk and bluegrass instruments, including acoustic guitar, upright bass, dobro, banjo, mandolin and various percussion pieces.

The band has had the honor of opening for Marty Stuart and the Fabulous Superlatives as well as with The New Riders of the Purple Sage, Assembly of Dust, and Railroad Earth. In addition to an active schedule gigging around the Jersey Shore, the band has produced three CD's ¦the self titled first CD, the "GGB Live at Surf and Offshore" and “Live at the Stone Pony”.
