GreenSky Bluegrass has some huge things in the works for the rest of 2018 and the start of 2019. Recently, they announced that their 2006 album Tuesday Letter will be released for the first time ever on 180G vinyl. You’ll be able to order the album at their online store for preorder on November 23. Their shows keep selling out as they travel around the United States promoting their upcoming album All For Money. One of the most recent sold-out shows took place on Friday and Saturday the weekend after Thanksgiving at Kalamazoo State in Michigan.
In 2000, GreenSky Bluegrass was founded in the very city that they recently sold out twice in. They originally formed the band with just 3 members before later growing to include 5. While their name may have the word “bluegrass” in it, they are far from your stereotypical bluegrass band. Their music certainly has the same feeling like the genre but with other sounds like rock and stringband. Everything about the band has evolved since they were first formed including their stage show. What started off as a simple show now includes a light show and other special effects.
Their newest album All For Money is scheduled for release on January 18, 2019, but can be preordered now. They will also be starting a winter tour at the start of 2019 on January 10 in Albany, New York. The tour will continue until their last show in Detroit, Michigan on February 9. Some of the other bands featured on the upcoming GreenSky Bluegrass tour will include the Cris Jacobs Band, Circles Around The Sun, and Billy Strings. More musicians are expected to be announced as the tour dates approach.
The band now consists of Dave Bruzza on guitar, Paul Hoffman on Mandolin, Michael Arlen Bont on banjo, Michael Devol on bass, and Anders Beck on Dobro. Greensky Bluegrass appeared on the main stage of the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in 2007 after being named the winners of their 2006 band competition. It was after this that they recorded Tuesday Letter which will soon be available on vinyl.
