Grass Routes Bluegrass Band

Event Date: 
Saturday, February 9, 2013 - 8:00pm

Grass Routes is a Connecticut five-piece bluegrass band. Since 1980 they have been delighting audiences with a repertoire ranging from traditional bluegrass standards to folk and  contemporary songs all performed in their own unique bluegrass style. Skillful instrumental work and strong vocals give Grass Routes their own characteristic sound. Showcasing especially tight harmonies, vocals include duets to four part harmonies. What makes Grass Routes unique  is that each member sings lead. With five lead vocalists, Grass Routes presents a different style and material with each vocal arrangement.

Members of band include Joe Lemeris, banjo; Bill Reveley, mandolin and fiddle ; Marilyn Toback-Reveley, rhythm guitar, Joe DeLillo, upright bass and Tim St. Jean, mandoline/guitar/fiddle/concertina. Grass Routes has appeared on radio and television and performed at major concerts and bluegrass festivals throughout the Northeast. Grass Routes currently has five recording projects. Their musical style appeals to audiences of all ages.
