Greensky Bluegrass Presents ‘Casual Wednesday’ Livestream From The Pageant
129 days after the last Greensky Bluegrass performance, the band reunited yesterday for a two-hour concert that was featured in a free livestream. The quintet assembled at a mostly empty The Pageant in St. Louis for a “Casual Wednesday” set that included one beloved staple after another.
Mandolinist Paul Hoffman led the group through “Living Over” and “Windshield” to kick off the show. A quick run through the Beatles’ “Help!” followed along with “Take Cover” and “Bottle Dry.” Greensky Bluegrass’ performance was accompanied by a full light show and continued on with “What You Need” before “In Control” gave way to “A Letter To Seymour.”
Dobro player Anders Beck headed up to the balcony next to provide narration for what he referred to as the last “Casual Wednesday.” Beck discussed the lengthy layoff between gigs, took a spin in a golf cart and noted that there are 16 Wednesdays until the election before joining his mates on-stage. Anders urged fans at home to sing the song’s refrain at the top of their lungs.
From there, guitarist Dave Bruzza fronted the group on “Worried About The Weather.” Then, Hoffman belted out “Old Barns.” Finally, “Wings For Wheels” set the scene for a well-jammed “Don’t Lie” closer. Watch the full set below:
