If you're familiar with bluegrass music, then you're tuned in to some of what Greensky
Bluegrass does. They're also known to throw a great party, rock n roll, and (if the critics
are to be believed) they have great songs. They are unquestionably a team of friends
that traverse the country making music they enjoy. What makes Greensky different than
Bluegrass? Poignant rural ballads about real people? Dobro tone that Jerry (Douglas or
Garcia) would love? Distortion Pedals? Grit and attitude from a whiskey soaked card
game? Indeed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg.
This quintet from Michigan has been staying up late at all the coolest festivals and
stopping to play your favorite clubs and theaters across America for 11 years now. Nearly
175 shows per year has prepared them for the rigorous task of continuity. Greensky
Bluegrass isn't slowing down. "They're coming to your town to help you party down."

While they all may be accurate, we hope you'll find far more than you expected, hell -
even more than we expected contained in this piece work that may well come to define
one of 21st Century America's hardest working musical ensembles.
A high energy Rocky Mountain newgrass band coming from the overpopulated state of
Montana. The boys in this band (not to be confused with boy bands) hail from all over
this great country we call the United States. With Joe Funk from Alaska, Shawn Swain
from Colorado, Torrin Daniels from Montana, and Kyle Shelstad from Wisconsin, they
come together to form the most democratic, free form sonic bliss. The standard bluegrass
lineup of banjo, mando, guitar, and bass, this band's sound is anything but standard. With
picking that resembles the sound of laser beams being fired at your head, you'll leave
ever wanting more.
