Greensky Bluegrass - Friday, May 6

Greensky Bluegrass

Bluegrass Band Greensky Bluegrass is set to take the stage on Friday, May 6 at 5 p.m. in the University of Wyoming Prexy’s Pasture. This concert will be free and open to the public.

            7220 Entertainment sponsors this performance.

             Greensky Bluegrass is comprised of Anders Beck (dobro), Michael Arlen Bont (banjo), Dave Bruzza (guitar), Mike Devol (upright bass) and Paul Hoffman (mandolin). 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, in concert and on record.

            By playing up to 175 shows a year, mostly in rock clubs, to open-minded festivals like Telluride, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, as well as an upcoming gig at Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Ampitheatre, Greensky Bluegrass became a word-of-mouth underground sensation, cultivating a devoted legion of fans entranced both by the band’s improvisational acumen and the quality of their songwriting. Then and now, despite their wide-ranging musical interests, Greensky continues to work within the structure of a classic five-man stringband.
