Who ’dat?: Ryan Hall (mandolin/vocals) Nate Todd (keyboard/vocals) Bill Wells (bass /vocals) Luke Kennedy (drums/vocals) Matt Gallagher (banjo/electric banjo) Zac Steinman (guitar)
Facespace Categorization?: bluegrass/ rock.
We’re not saying they are these guys, but they kind of sound like: String Cheese Incident, New Grass Revival
What’s their deal?: A little more than a year ago, a chance meeting between bands resulted in Whiskey Tango Bluegrass. Nate, Ryan and Bill, met Matt, Zach and Luke, formed an instant musical connection and merged their jam band and bluegrass band into one group. They became a regular weekly act at Quixote’s True Blue, while branching out through the region.
