Rave Reivew For Bela Fleck and The Flecktones’ Holiday Show In Madison

We promised an unforgettable holiday music performance from Bela Fleck, and his Flecktones, and boy, did they deliver!  You don’t have to take our word for it though.  Just listen to what Madison.com’s Rob Thomas had to say:

“Fleck is no stranger to playing in Madison, but Sunday’s show was truly special. The Flecktones’ approach to Christmas music not only showcased the incredible creativity and ability of every member of the band, it let you appreciate songs you’ve heard a billion times as music again, instead of just big-box store background noise.”

Greensky Bluegrass Kick Off 2009!

This Wednesday, the High Noon Saloon will be the site of the first True Endeavors show of 2009!  Cobalt and the Hired Guns will start things off at 8:30 with an acoustic set, followed by headliners, Greensky Bluegrass.  They are not, in the words of JamBands.com reviewer Joy Rosenberg, “your grandfather’s bluegrass band.”  The Kalamazoo natives have made a name for themselves by fusing traditional elements of the classic genre with improvisational folk and jam band attitude.  It pomises to be a great start to start the new year–you won’t want to miss it!
