Greensky Bluegrass announces today a series of streaming broadcasts across the months of August and September. As the uncertain future of live music in its traditional format remains in limbo due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the band has gone to great lengths to safely gather to record these very special performances with full production.
"After months of being apart from each other, the feeling of playing music with my band of brothers was nothing short of pure joy. The real icing on the cake is that we get to pump these shows into your living rooms in super high definition. We can’t wait to be with you again!” - Anders Beck
"it’s alive. in a venue. with lights and speakers. it’s been over one hundred days since we played music together. longer than ever. it feels so great to play again. we wish you all could be here but for now, we’ll come to you. tune in. friday night is back." - Paul Hoffman
The series will be shot by 201 Productions, most widely known for the extensive work capturing Live Phish, and delivered via HYFI; a tech savvy new platform delivering content in stunning 4K with remarkable high definition audio that simply must be experienced first-hand.
A live force of nature renowned for bringing rock ‘n’ roll showmanship to high-energy bluegrass, Greensky Bluegrass has sold out hallowed venues such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre and the legendary Ryman Auditorium in addition to igniting stages everywhere from New Orleans Jazz Festival to Austin City Limits, Fuji Rock Festival to Byron Bay Bluesfest and beyond. Their unpredictable performances remain the stuff of legend attracting diehard devotees who typically travel far and wide to experience multiple gigs.
Comprised of Anders Beck (dobro), Michael Arlen Bont (banjo), Dave Bruzza (guitar), Mike Devol (upright bass), and Paul Hoffman (mandolin), Greensky Bluegrass is known for pushing the limits of traditional bluegrass. Beck explains, “We’re a rock-and-roll band that plays bluegrass instruments. Bluegrass is such a finite thing. Because you have a banjo and a mandolin, you’re supposed to do it a certain way or you’ll piss off some people. But we’ve always been ourselves.”
