Bluegrass Concert with Sideline
Swing into the holiday season with a bluegrass banquet that you won't soon forget! The incredibly talented musicians from Sideline are coming to the Cattle Track Theatre in Scottsdale on Thursday, November 3rd and they're packing a punch!
Music critics just can't get enough of this great bluegrass mashup. Their music is intoxicating. Whether showcasing their instrumental prowess or vocal mastery, they bring on the firepower in a way that is reminiscent of traditional bluegrass greats. And then they turn around and ignite the audience with an original tune that blows them away!
No doubt bluegrass fans are well aware of the popularity of award-winning, Grammy nominated bands such as IIIrd Tyme Out, Cherryholmes and James King. Well, Sideline brings together mega-talented members from each of these bands as well as some brand new emerging stars. What came out of their first recording session (Sideline - Session 1) took the bluegrass world by storm. In fact, the success of their first album was so overwhelming that they went right back in the studio to record "Sideline - Session 2" featuring the hit single "Mountain Girl."
What started out as a little project on the side for these gifted musicians, became so popular that they are now in high demand to perform across the US. We're just danged lucky that they're heading through Phoenix on their way to the west coast so we could snag them for your listening pleasure!
This is an absolute MUST SEE for any bluegrass lover living in the state of Arizona. It's definitely worth the drive from anywhere in the state.
