Watch Greensky Bluegrass Play In Nashville and Columbus For A Great Weekend Of Music

first_imgAfter coming off of a prime performance in Indianapolis on Thursday night, Greensky Bluegrass spent the weekend lighting up cities across the Midwest with their patented brand of jamgrass. After being forced to cancel their show on Friday in St. Louis due to severe weather (the show is now rescheduled for 3/16), the boys held nothing back and were clearly antsy to throw down for their shows in Nashville, TN, on Saturday, and Columbus, OH, on Sunday. The unscheduled day of rest on Friday clearly suited the band, as the shows this weekend were a testament to Greensky’s ability to hold nothing back and to the old adage, “Never miss a Sunday show.”Saturday night’s show at Marathon Music Works in Nashville, TN, kicked off with “Worried About The Weather,” a tongue-and-cheek head nod to the show cancellation in St. Louis the night before. The night then saw the band move into “Miss September” from their newest album, Shouted, Written Down and Quote . The band busted out two Bob Marley covers, “Could You Be Loved” and “Three Little Birds.” For the latter, “Three Little Birds” was playing as the house music during set break, and the band picked up right where the song left off to kick off their second set before moving into “Jaywalking.” The band closed second set by sandwiching “Breathe” in between “Don’t Lie,” marking a return to the Pink Floyd cover after their Thursday night show.Watch the show opener, “Worried About the Weather,” from Saturday’s performance at Marathon Music Works in Nashville, courtesy of Youtube user, 40oz_2_Freeman.Watch Greensky cover “Breathe” by Pink Floyd and jam it into “Don’t Lie” at Marathon Music Works in Nashville on Saturday, courtesy of Youtube user, 40oz_2_Freeman.Moving into Sunday night in Columbus at the Newport Music Hall, the boys were dialed in and harnessed the building energy from the night before to throw a smokin’ show in Ohio. After opening with “No Idea,” the first set featured favorites such as “Broken Highways” and ended with “In Control” into “Can’t Stop Now,” before finally closing with “Living Over.” However, the second set of the night solidified the night as a scorcher of a show, with the band getting playful. “Demons” was followed by a history of the song, before moving into “Forget Everything.” In the middle of set, “Leap Year” sandwiched Jimi Hendrix’s “Foxy Lady,” a track that never fails to be a crowdpleaser when busted out. Dave Bruzza sang the final verse of “Foxy Lady,” and the second “Leap Year” heavily teased the classic Hendrix track. “Bring Out Your Dead” off Handguns was another crowdpleaser, and the evening closed with “Just To Lie” into “Kerosene.” For their encore, the band was joined by Melody Walker for Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain.”Clearly, if this weekend is an indication, Greensky Bluegrass is ramping up the heat as they move into the Southern portion of the winter tour. Starting Wednesday, the band will be moving through Georgia, North Carolina, and Alabama, and tickets and other dates for the tour can be found here on their website.
