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.Add a comment
Tommy Smith, Matt Johnson, and Mike Lloyd from Leogun sat down with Carolina Mixer prior to their show at Charter Amphitheatre in Simpsonville, SC and talked to us about their influences, what the ride has been like so far, and their dedication to putting some badassery back into Rock.
