Greenskye Bluegrass is regarded as one of the most highly acclaimed bluegrass bands around. Emerging from Kalamazoo, Michigan, in 2000, the quintet is responsible for modern popularizing the genre. Today, they are a festival favorite. Greensky Bluegrass packs venues by the thousands. The band, comprising Dave Burzza, Paul Hoffman, Michale Bont, Anders Beck, and Mike Devol, used electric effects and a full light show to liven up their concerts. Match that with their immense talent, infectious energy, and outstanding tight sets. The band, which has released ten studio albums, is known for fusing bluegrass with diverse sets of sound. The band itself has described their style as “their own version of bluegrass music, mixing the acoustic stomp of a string band with the rule-breaking spirit of rock & roll.” Their 2023 setlist is a plethora of career-spanning tracks from Five Interstates, If Sorrow Swims, Shouted, Written Down & Quoted, All For Money, and Stress Dreams. Fans are ecstatic to hear some iconic staples, such as “Windshield,” “Forget Everything,” and “Burn Them.”
Meanwhile, The Infamous Stringdusters are currently promoting their latest album, a Tribue to Flatt & Scruggs. The Grammy Award-winning jam band is now making a killing in the circuit with their incredible releases and consistent touring.

Three years later, they would again be nominated in the same category for their effort, A Tribute to Bill Monroe. Formed in 2006 by Andy Hall and a former guitarist, The Infamous Stringdusters has grown into one of the most prolific bluegrass-country fusion.
