Cover Alert | Greensky Bluegrass Takes Hornsby Cover Deep

Michigan-based jamgrass quintet Greensky Bluegrass sure kept busy this weekend. On Friday, they played a set at Suwannee Hulaween and then jetted to Las Vegas for a pair of performances at the Sin City outpost of Brooklyn Bowl. Greensky’s afternoon show in Vegas included a well-jammed cover of Bruce Hornsby’s “King Of The Hill.”

“King Of The Hill” has been a staple of Greensky Bluegrass’s repertoire for a long time and they now use it as a springboard for improvisation. All five members of Greensky show off their massive skill sets during the 15-minute take on the Hornsby tune from Vegas. We’ve come across fan-shot video by glaste03 of Greensky Bluegrass’s stellar “King Of The Hill” from Vegas and while there are a few audio cracks and pops, we still think it’s worth checking out.
