It doesn't get much better than this

Further proof that some of the best music being written and performed these days is coming out of Michigan.

Handguns is a near-perfect showcase for how this incredibly talented group is evolving as songwriters and performers. Even more, it's that rarest of beasts: a strong, eminently listenable studio album from a band that's most solidly in it's element when it's playing live. That they can capture a completely different kind of magic in the studio speaks volumes about their depth and versatility.

Handguns could very well prove to be Greensky's "American Beauty". It has that simple beauty and accessibility that belies masterful performances from each of the guys - not to mention those from the album's various guest contributors. One can only hope that Handguns will go a long way toward earning this band the exposure and acclaim that they so richly deserve.

Another Triumph

Amazing! It only takes one word but I am going to say more anyway. Been listening to this band since their beginnings in K-Zoo. They just keep getting better. Here is hoping that many more discover what I learned long ago. Great music comes from what you feel, where you've come from, what it was like and what it's like on the other side. Very few bands get that today. These guys do. Congrats on all of the recent success and critical acclaim boys. You've earned every bit of it.

About to blow up

If you like Avett Bros and Mumford, try this. We love them in Michigan but want everyone else who appreciates musicianship to spread the love! Jaywalking is probably my favorite, but whenever I watch certain shows like Hell on Wheels, I think their songs would fit right in with the soundtrack.

Formed in the fall of 2000 by guitarist Dave Bruzza, mandolinist Paul Hoffman, and banjo player Michael Arlen Bont, Greensky Bluegrass spent several years gigging informally around their hometown of Kalamazoo,...
