THE FUTURE OF BLUEGRASS.

Fantastic musicianship. Upbeat musical style. A good time will be had by all.

HUGELY ENTERTAINING!

Wasn't familiar with Billy strings prior to this event, but my sister and I decided to take a chance. So glad we did! Amazing musicianship with all the band members, high energy and fast paced. The audience was great with a wide variety of ages from babies to elderly hippies, very friendly and welcoming, and let's just say there was a thick cloud of smoke over the whole event! The song lineup ranged everywhere from traditional bluegrass,(all five band members standing around a single microphone taking turns playing into it and singing in harmony), to what some people called "acid grass". Midway through the show the band went in the back and Billy sat alone with a stool and acoustic guitar and sang three or four songs and talked to the audience. Very entertaining and they made fans of both of us. We'll make sure to catch them each time they're in town.

BILLY STRINGS

AN ACOUSTIC GUITAR DOESN'T DO THAT

Calling Strings' music "bluegrass" is like calling the Beatles Sargent Peppers "pop". I've seen some of the great guitarists over the years (Eddy, Slash, Richards, Ted,...), but I've never seen anybody do "stuff" like this...with an acoustic guitar! The Armory was rocking. Strings is a genius in his prime...think David Gilmore circa 1977. He's moving music forward, not just bluegrass.

BILLY STRINGS AT THE ARMORY

Fantastic show. Each member of the band is amazingly skilled and together their timing, rhythm and harmonies are off the charts good. Billy strings is a talent above any other in Bluegrass. His guitar play is second to none and I am a huge Mark Knopfler fan.

2.0 star rating Phil Edmoundson from Kansas City, Missouri

ALL HAT. NO CATTLE.

All I can say it was just a disappointment.
