The band will be rocking the night away with two great sets, so get ready to party.

Dave Holodiloff’s “Grateful Dead Bluegrass Tribute” album will be available at the show. The CD features inventive arrangements of classic Grateful Dead favorites like “Friend Of The Devil” and “Scarlet Begonias” interspersed with original improvisations and even an acoustic Old-Timey psychedelic space jam on the more obscure “Mountains of the Moon”.

Bio: Dave Holodiloff is a mandolin player, vocalist, composer, and band leader known for his inventive arrangements, expressive musicianship and ability to inspire partnerships with amazing musicians.

This diverse mastery of styles comes together under Dave’s high energy precise playing for a sound that is rich, unexpected, and exceptionally fun. He has recorded and released nine albums that capture traditional acoustic music at its most dynamic. The diverse recordings include Original Music, Balkan, Bluegrass, Jazz, Celtic, World Favorites, Holiday Classics, and even a Grateful Dead Bluegrass Tribute.
