Always sure to raise the roof and keep the dance floor rockin’, hoppin’ and shakin’, the band’s quickly growing fan base finds the community spirit and kind vibes contagious!

Gary Davis, Marty Robbins, Bruce Cockburn, Phish, and Peter Tosh, to name a few… No two GBB shows are ever alike and the band always strives to bring a true-to-life traditional vibe to each and every performance!
