GreenSky Bluegrass from Kalamazoo, Michigan has been delighting fans with its music since 2000. The five member band that consists of Anders Beck (dobro), Michael Arlen Bont (banjo), Dave Bruzza (guitar), Mike Devol (upright bass) and Paul Hoffman (mandolin) prides itself on a unique sound that combines both acoustic elements with rock and roll to create a sound that can only be defined as GreenSky Bluegrass. The band has released a total of nine albums, and is set to release its tenth album, titled All For Money, on January 18, 2019.
The band boasts several tour dates throughout the year and is a regular act for many widely known festivals including Austin City Limits, Bonaroo, and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. In addition, they have headlined in many famous arenas including the legendary Red Rock amphitheater. GreenSky has recently completed the Pacific Northwest and West Coast legs of its fall tour with shows in places like Portland, Seattle, and San Francisco. During the San Francisco show, the band was joined by friend and former tourmate, Holly Bowling, who accompanied the band on the piano for the duration of the second set and encore. The set list from GreenSky’s most recent shows include a variety of the band’s original work combined with covers of fan favorites like The Police’s “Driven to Tears”, and The Rolling Stones’ “Let’s Spend the Night Together”.
Greensky has just released the dates for the winter leg of its tour which will feature songs from its new album All for the Money. The thirty-five show tour kicks off in Albany, New York on January 10, 2019 and closes with a five show appearance at the renowned Byron Bay Blues Fest in Australia April 18 through April 22.
