GANGSTAGRASS at the Geneseo Riviera Theater
Bluegrass/Hip-Hop may sound like an odd combination, but dont tell that to Producer Rench, who conceived the sound of Gangstagrass in 2006. Though it began as an isolated experiment, Gangstagrass has since grown into a critically acclaimed success celebrated by The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, TVGuide, Elmore Leonard, NPR.org, and more than 50,000 fans who have been entranced by one of the bands hundreds of performances and have purchased the bands four official LPs.
There are a lot more people out there with Jay-Z and Johnny Cash on their iPod playlists than you think. says Rench, who had previously made a name for himself as an in-demand Brooklyn country and hip-hop producer, and solo artist.
When he shared his first bluegrass/hip-hop experiment, Rench Presents: Gangstagrass for free on the internet, the buzz occurred instantly and unexpectedly. Renchs unique vision combined hip-hop MCs and beats in sync with banjos, fiddles, and dobros, and made the combination feel seamless, natural, and authentic. As a consequence, Rench Presents: Gangstagrass received hundreds of thousands of downloads and blog features including BoingBoing.net.
But it was one phone call that would convince the young mastermind to continue his experiments with a more fervent focus and passion. It came from the FX network who upon listening to Gangstagrass, commissioned Rench to write the theme song to a new show, Justified.
