Grateful Bluegrass Boys are an acoustic string band from the Santa Cruz/SF Bay Area. Their primary mission is to get the audience singing and dancing along to beloved songs one might…or might not expect from a string band. Their first CD includes songs by Paul Simon, Willie Nelson, Led Zeppelin, Johnny Nash, The Eagles, and the Grateful Dead. While the name of the band references the Grateful Dead, gratitude is at the core of the band. They feel incredibly fortunate to play music for people all over the country and keep their set lists fresh and diverse. Recent shows include music by Ray Charles, Dire Straits, Neil Young, the Cars and more! The band also has a healthy respect for traditional Bluegrass and one can expect fiddle tunes and raucous Bluegrass songs. The band fits in perfectly at Bluegrass Festivals, Jam Band festivals, and art centers. They have shared the stage with Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Lukas Nelson, Bill Nershi, and many more incredible musicians.
