    Default The Travelin' McCourys The Grateful Ball video/tour

    Bit of band news thought best to post here vs. as a news release, directly from the McCoury publisher:


    The Travelin' McCourys started a very special string of shows called 'The Grateful Ball' in 2016. The show consists of a set of music from The Jeff Austin Band, a set of music from The Travelin' McCourys and then a set with both bands playing all Grateful Dead songs. While the band initially only planned to do one run, the success of the shows and demand from fans across the country made them rethink and plan a few more shows, this time on the West Coast.

    Today the band releases a professionally shot video of 'Althea' from one of their first stops on the last tour at The Hamilton in Washington, DC. You can see the video here:

    Upcoming Bluegrass Ball dates are as follows:

    Tuesday, February 21st - Applegate Lodge - Jacksonville, OR *
    Wednesday, February 22nd - Humboldt Brews - Arcata, CA *

    Saw this show in Annapolis MD at Ram's Head October of 2016. Long night, but a great show.

    I'm thinking about heading from Pomona, CA to Vegas for Monday's show. Maybe stay the night and back on Tuesday. I have room for at least 2 if anyone is interested in sharing expenses.
