    With a Little Help from Our Friends

    January 29, 2013 in Uncategorized

    The Ski Tour is one of the true Stringdusters traditions. And what good are traditions unless they can be shared with great friends. Of course, we invite our most coveted friends (you, the fans) to every event we do. But this Ski Tour we decided to open each night with some old friends from the hood.
     
    We’re stoked to have Booksy’s friends and former bandmates Jon Stickley and Robin Davis opening our Colorado Ski Tour Shows. The three of them were in a band called Broke Mountain Bluegrass Band with Anders Beck (Greensky) and Andy Thorn (Leftover Salmon) from 2003-2005. If you haven’t heard them, Robin’s band Waiting on Trial is a dirty desert bluegrass band with a penchant for whiskey and Martin D-21’s. Jon Stickley Trio is a free exploration of the gray area between jazz and bluegrass, smiles guaranteed. Both bands are awesome and we’re thrilled to turn our fans on to these bands that are both truly part of the family.

    The New York Times reviews The ‘Dusters at The Bowery Ballroom

    January 16, 2013 in Uncategorized

    We’re so pleased that The New York Times came out to see The Stringdusters play at one of our favorite venues, The Bowery Ballroom. And for publishing an awesome photo of the show. (Thanks to our lighting engineer, Brett, for his help with that too).

    “What sounds casual and good-timey — handoffs from player to player, solos that turn into intertwined duets — is intricately plotted and arranged, attentive to the textures of each voice and string. The Infamous Stringdusters don’t leave bluegrass behind; they’re stretching it from within.”

    December 28, 2012 in Uncategorized

    We had great success at The Festy Experience this year keeping thousands of cups out of the landfill and maintaining clean concert grounds so we’re doing it again to celebrate New Years. Bring your empty steel pint cup (from The Festy, Floyd Fest, etc.) to our New Years Eve show and The Jefferson Theater will fill up your cup for $1 off draught beers.

    Additionally all VIP ticket holders will receive a Kleen Kanteen steel pint cup and koozie in their package.
