Greensky Bluegrass got their start in the Kalamazoo area back in 2000. The members are - Michael Arlen Bont (banjo), Dave Bruzza (guitar), Anders Beck (dobro), Michael Devol(bass), and Paul Hoffman (mandolin). I first stumbled upon Greensky Bluegrass while searching for Bluegrass music at internetarchive.org. There is a good amount of live recordings from various Greensky Bluegrass concerts available. My current favorite is the December 2006 performance at the Acorn Theater in Three Oaks, Michigan.
Anyway, I decided to do a post about them today because for the past few days I have had their song, "Grow Bananas" stuck in my head. I've been walking around singing the chorus to my kids. My almost four-year-old has even started singing it.
Here is a short clip of them performing "Grow Bananas" at Bell's Beer Garden in beautiful downtown Kalamazoo.
