Greensky is a five-member country band/American bluegrass created in Michigan’s Kalamazoo in 2000. The group started with three members, but it has grown to include five members. The band has added dynamic effects as well as full light shows on their tours. Moreover, the band has maintained the concept of traditional bluegrass in most of its genres. Because of the name, all articles that the group releases address the fact that Greensky is not all about bluegrass. For instance, in their promotional materials, the group explains that what they produce is their bluegrass music version that is mixed with an acoustic stomp as well as having the spirit of rock and roll.
Greensky Bluegrass was established in 2000 by Dave Bruzza (guitar), Paul Hoffman (mandolin), and Michael Arlen Bont (banjo). By this time, the three were new to the scene of bluegrass, but they brought upon a series of influences and variety music backgrounds which was displayed in their Less than Supper release in may 2004. Less than Supper was recorded with Al Bates the dobro player and Chris Carr, the bassist. Carr and Bates later left the group. Michael Devol who had planned to join the band as one of its managers later became the bassist. In 2006, the band won the band competition of Telluride Bluegrass festival. This win made them participate on 2007 festival’s main stage. Soon the band released Tuesday Letter, their second album which was the production of Railroad Earth’s Tim Carbone.
Greensky Bluegrass debuted their latest album Shouted, Written Down & Quoted in September 2016. The record was Steve Berlin’s production. Steve works with Los Lobos. Most parts of the album recordings were done in North Carolina’s Asheville in 2015. The band’s on-stage collaborations include Sam Bush, Larry Keel, Phil Lesh, Cornmeal, Railroad Earth, Papa Mail, and Bill Kreutzman.
The Greensky bluegrass performed for two nights at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The band took over the primary roles during the Friday show giving more fun to the enormous crowd infused funky R&B, bluesy jams. It was fun for the band to invite many guests while sprinkling some Grateful Dead and Phish teases during their entire jam grass.

According to Alex Pall, the New York based DJ who forms one-half of the hit group the Chainsmokers, it is all about the struggle to become artists. Sitting down in an interview the Interview Magazine Pall and cohort Andrew Taggart explained the uniqueness of their music. The two have been steadily gaining popularity since the release of their breakthrough single “#Selfie” in 2012. Their latest work has been stirring up quite a hornet’s nest of speculation.
Since the 2016 release of charting single “Closer” Andrew Taggart has been providing lead vocals for songs. The duo has also become more involved in songwriting, and their music now contains references to their real lives within its lyrics. As most DJ’s in the EDM spectrum create electronic soundscapes out of other people’s music, obviously this is a bit peculiar. Pall explained it as a journey of self-discovery, and an attempt to remain interesting and engaged. “People connect to a our music on a deep level” the artists explained, “And we want to be part of that”.
The duo described their formation of album concepts, explaining to Interview Magazine their process. “You feel the pressure of an album,” Pall begins, “fans want it and so does the label, but we do not want an album of 10 or 12 songs that have nothing to do with each other.” Pall continues by describing a typical DJ album, around six good songs, a few dance records, maybe an interlude, and about three actual singles. According to Pall the group has reached the point where an album should be a related body of work, illustrating who they are cohesively.
It is pretty easy to understand where Alex Pall is coming from. EDM music is mostly beautifully organized sound tapestries. DJs rely on other artists to provide vocals and words. This is why songs within the genre sound a lot alike, and why there are seven remixes of the same source material floating around. The only way to become relevant in such an atmosphere, is to poke some holes in the wall and push boundaries.
