McCoury and his band worked with Phish back in the 90’s when Trey and the boys decided they wanted to learn to play bluegrass and they even appeared with Phish on stage on a couple of occasions. At the other end of the spectrum the Del McCoury Band worked with Steve Earl on his 1999 release The Mountain. They have crossed genres and generations to become one today’s most respected and loved Bluegrass bands.
David Grisman has a rich musical legacy that is interwoven with that of the Grateful Dead. Jerry Garcia and Grisman were good friends for much of their lives and recorded several albums of bluegrass, folk and jazz based material together. Grateful Dawg, a fascinating documentary about their friendship and musical relationship, offers an interesting look into the lives of these two legends.
Grisman’s self dubbed “Dawg Music” is at times mellow and jazzy while at other times lightning quick footstomping Bluegrass. It will offer a great compliment to Del McCoury Band’s more traditional high-lonesome sound. What a treat it is to have these two bands share the stage of The Ogden right here in Denver.
