We play top-notch Bluegrass, gospel, vintage country, old-time, and all kinds of Americana music. We perform at bluegrass festivals, private parties, weddings, and community events. This a very up beat group with each member bringing great talent. Our music is always energetic, authentic, fun, family-friendly, and we put on a good show.
Scattered Grass was prompt with their responses while setting up the gig, were on time, professional, and really made my mother's 60th birthday celebration a success. Guests kept asking where I had found such a great bluegrass band! Their sound was clean and kept us dancing until they had to (unfortunately) pack up. I would highly recommend Scattered Grass to anyone and wouldn't hesitate to hire them for a future celebration.
Step back in time to hear the very best rendition of Traditional Bluegrass music and Contemporary Traditional Bluegrass music. You will hear Traditional Bluegrass classic songs, and Traditional Bluegrass classic instrumental tunes like no other local Bluegrass band.
“Scattered Grass” plays Traditional and Contemporary Bluegrass in a “true” form, which is actually quite a rare treat around here in the Desert Southwest.
Although serious about providing authentic Bluegrass music, Scattered Grass is quite lively. The band members allow the happy and upbeat spirit of their tunes to shine through during and between songs, with humor and light hearted “Down-home” personal interaction with the audience. This personal side of the band is truly genuine and precious to their audience.
Although certainly faithful to any particular original version of any particular song, this band collectively has the musical skill and ability to allow their own musicality and performance styles to show through and become the drive of the music. This stems from summation of the many dozens of years of Bluegrass music study, recording, and stage performance experience between the band members.
Many different multitalented musical abilities are shared between all of the members of this highly exceptionally experienced Bluegrass band.
You will recognize distinct picking styles of Bluegrass banjo masters, Crowe, Scruggs, and Osborne, and hear these masters of the craft once again, picked thought Banjo player, Mark Krider with accuracy, and from the heart. He also plays guitar in the styles of Lester Flatt, or Doc Watson.
The music of Bluegrass fiddle masters, Kenny Baker or Paul Warren among others, can be heard through the bow and strings of the fiddle player, Bob Frankot with his skilled, confident, and fluid Classic Bluegrass fiddle style.
Sue Krider provides accurate, full, focused, well-timed Upright bass. Billy Parker gives you well-styled Lead guitar and Mandolin and strong vocals. Larry Conley delivers powerful Lead vocals, Rhythm guitar, and Lead guitar. A multi-talented musician known throughout Arizona, Alvin Blaine plays several instruments - Dobro, Rhythm guitar, Lead guitar, Banjo, and fine Vocals.
Yes they live in Tucson, but what sets this Bluegrass band apart from other local Bluegrass bands is that they bring real Bluegrass to Tucson from the places where they grew up with it. It is part of their origins. Traditional Bluegrass music has always been integral to their lives.
Booking this band will provide your audience with an opportunity to have a rare treat – to be the audience to the very best Bluegrass band Tucson has, and to see that no other Bluegrass band in Tucson picks Traditional and Contemporary Traditional Bluegrass the way that Scattered Grass does.
