Led by singer/mandolin-extraordinaire, Paul Hoffman, the band was more than comfortable playing in front of an Asheville crowd measured in the thousands. 

Greensky Bluegrass "live" is a musical companion of a country home commute to the big city. They start off on the country road, vast and beautiful. The music speeds up and rides the rails as we get into the city. It’s a fast, fun, and sweet ride. The boys played a very tasty cover of Traffic’s “Light Up Or Leave Me Alone” which had teases of Phish’s “Tweezer” and more within.
