Grateful Bluegrass Boys
Grateful Bluegrass Boys
Grateful Bluegrass Boys began when Aaron Redner (Hot Buttered Rum) and David Thom (Vintage Grass), both Sonoma residents, decided to mesh their love for traditional Bluegrass music with the songs of the Grateful Dead. Bryan Horne (Hot Buttered Rum) soon joined the mix on bass and the trio played a few private events before deciding to play in Bay Area clubs and festivals. Ben Jacobs (Poor Man's Whiskey) plays accordion and a rotating cast of musicians fill out the band depending on the repertoire of the evening. GBB also plays the music of Bob Dylan and other classic luminaries to create an evening of sing-a-long revelry.
