Greensky Bluegrass Cover The Wood Bros, Bob Marley & More For Milwaukee Throwdown [Gallery/Setlist]

first_imgWith the electricity and excitement already in the air from Wisconsin’s victory in the March Madness tournament, Greensky Bluegrass continued their streak of excellent shows last night in Milwaukee at the Pabst Theater. They gave a raucous performance to a large crowd that has only grown in size with each subsequent visit from the jamgrass musicians. The show was filled originals and covers that delighted fans.After a great opening set from the Shook Twins, Greensky wasted no time and broke into “Seymour” to start the show. And the bluegrass began! They followed with a slower tune, “In Control,” that simmered down the initial excitement, and not in a negative way. Later they played another blazing bluegrass tune, a cover of Traffic’s “Light Up or Leave Me Alone,” that featured a good solid Tweeprise jam. Astute Phish fans who were listening intently were rewarded with the famous Trey Anastasio riff in the middle of the song. Another highlight of the first set was “Forget Everything,” where the band had a good opportunity to sing in strong harmonies.Of course, the second set only expanded on the band’s energetic jamgrass that was laid down in the first half. They worked in a cover of the Wood Brothers’ “Luckiest Man” that was well received by the crowd. They also played “Windshield,” the first track from their recently-released album If Sorrows Swim, which featured some great improvisational moments. The improv slowly grew quieter asthe band brought the song down to an end. However, the crowd continued the melody with some collective singing of “oooooooooooooooo.” Perhaps planned, but perhaps not, after a minute of the crowd forging ahead, the band began the ending refrain to finish the song. It was really neat and unique!Certainly the band saved the best for last, as they ended the second set with a cover of Bob Marley’s “Could You Be Loved?” featuring the Shook Twins. If you ever wondered if the classic reggae tune would sound good with a bluegrass twist, then wonder no more. Greensky Bluegrass did a phenomenal job of performing the song, and the crowd absolutely loved it. All in all it was another fine concert from jamgrass titans Greensky Bluegrass.Check out the full setlist below via Camp Greensky, and a full gallery of photos from Daniel Ojeda Photography:Setlist: Greensky Bluegrass at the Pabst Theater, Milwaukee, WI – 3/18/16Set One: Seymour, In Control, Bring Out Your Dead, Light Up Or Leave Me Alone, Take Cover, Cry Holy, Through The Trees, 33443 > Forget Everything, Leap YearSet Two: No Idea, Lose My Way, White House Blues, Luckiest Man, Windshield, Windshield Reprise#, Pig In A Pen, Blood Sucking F(r)iends, I’d Probably Kill You, Broke Mountain Breakdown > Could You Be Loved*Encore: Living over# – Crowd Induced* – w/Shook Twins Load remaining imageslast_img read more

first_imgLetterkenny businesses are set to make hay while the sun shines over the July 12th period.Letterkenny has much to offer visitors with 25% allowed on sterling.Retailers are once again displaying their exchange rate in bright pink letters as the Sterling/Euro exchange rate moves in favour of traders in the Cathedral Town.And they are all set to reap the rewards just in time for the twelfth fortnight to attract the many Northern Ireland customers who visit during this time. Gerard Grant, Letterkenny Chamber President said the value is certainly in favour of the customer.“There is so much value to be had at the minute across Letterkenny and if a customer is using sterling they will get even more for their money. On the border the exchange rate fluctuates all the time but we are ready to take full advantage of the exchange rate at this time.“By all accounts it looks like it will remain like this for a while so that’s good news for Letterkenny. Over the 12th fortnight we generally see many visitors and holiday makers from Northern Ireland and we hope that the exchange rate gives them an opportunity to shop and spend time in Letterkenny.”Letterkenny Chamber under its Shop LK brand has produced a poster for participating shops which very simply tells customers that the shop offers a rate of £1 = €1.25 in vibrant pink. These have been distributed around independent retailers who will proudly display them on their shop windows.Gerard continue that this is Letterkenny’s time to make hay while the sun shines!“We want to welcome back all our Northern customers to re-discover what Letterkenny has to offer. This town has a great shopping reputation and we are keen to keep our loyal customers and to attract back those who may not have been here for a while and the Summer is the best time to experience all that Letterkenny has to offer.”Letterkenny offers a great shopping experience with its traditional Main Street, the shopping centres, the retail parks and lots more in between.And after a few hours shopping there’s lots of places to relax for a coffee, a meal or for family entertainment. This exchange rate campaign will last well into the Summer so keep out an eye for the bright pink signs.
