EverGreen Grass Band
Eau Claire, WI
This weekend we're excited to welcome a first time act to the Rookery's outdoor stage. Yet while they may be new to us, the EverGreen Grass Band has been developing a tremendous following among string band fans throughout the Midwest since they initially formed in 2008.
These self-proclaimed "not quite a bluegrass band" musicians are now on the road full-time, and their ambitious schedule has them performing this summer everywhere from Grand Marais, MN to Bell's Brewery in Kalamazoo, MI to music festivals and fairs in Peoria, IL and Sioux Falls, SD, with dozens of other stops along the way. Just last week, in fact, they were the featured act at Hayward's Park Theater. And now you too can enjoy their distinctive blend of bluegrass, rock and roll, jam, and country right here at the Rookery.
"Armed with lightning fast, laser accurate bluegrass instruments, the EverGreen Grass Band takes stage loaded for bear and delivers a show that takes no prisoners. Their expert chops, homespun original tunes and sparkling vocal harmonies conquer the summits of musical elevations that many bands attempt, yet so few achieve. Do not miss this show." - Martha Galep, Minnesota Bluegrass and Old Time Music Association Harvest Jam Director
After the past few days of scorching weather this Sunday is shaping up to be just perfect for live outdoor music, with scattered clouds and a high of 72 degrees. As always the Rookery grill fires up at 1:30 and the music begins at 2. There's no cover charge though gratuities for the musicians are most appreciated.
The EverGreen Grass Band. This Sunday. Live. Outdoors. Only at the Rookery!
