The Deadly Gentlemen
Michigan’s own Greensky Bluegrass is earning recognition nationwide as a growing force in acoustic roots music. It is their unique “fusion of tradition and enthusiasm for improvisation” that has come to define the band’s creative and tangible compositional style. Rolling Stone recently wrote, “Greensky are hardly strictly bluegrass and, yet, they’re representing the genre for a whole new generation.” Greensky released the CD Handguns in October of 2011 and it debuted at #3 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart. Planet Bluegrass (producers of Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Rockygrass and Folks Festival) recently said, “Greensky Bluegrass was anointed one of the next jamgrass superstars. Greensky proved that they are more than ready to hold the jamgrass torch.” Touring extensively since 2005, Greensky has developed great versatility in the performance arena, earning audiences nationwide, from all walks of life. The mixing of original compositions with traditional bluegrass numbers and genre bending cover songs gives the band a broad spectrum in which to display their driving technical chops, vocal abilities, and lyrical insight.
