Bluegrass isn't supposed to be "party music", is it? Apparently it is when the Dejablue Grass Band plays it. The band, comprised of five members that hail from such exotic locales as Utah, Alabama, South Carolina, Texas, and Georgia manage to inject a punk rock feel into traditional Bluegrass music, making it easy to get up on your feet and rock out. Don't get me wrong - the Atlanta based band still treats the music with reverence, and some of their songs remain true to the classic styles, but they also enjoy "turning it up to eleven", and really rocking the strings.
Dejablue not only keeps the music fun and lively. The bands' stories and banter between songs will keep a smile on your face during their show. Do yourself a favor and get your butt out to wherever they are playing. You won't regret it!
The Band is:
Mark Lehi Jones ("Buckethead") - Banjo
Joey "JB" Bowers - Rhythm Guitar and Lead Vocals
Rutland Walker - Mandolin
Todd Cliatt - Bass
Keith Stewart - Fiddle
