    The JamBase Podcast: Greensky Bluegrass' Paul Hoffman & Anders Beck

    Episode 109 of The JamBase Podcast features an interview with Greensky Bluegrass’ Paul Hoffman and Anders Beck.

The band played a two-night stand at Denver’s Mission Ballroom earlier this month, where they went sans covers outside of “Auld Lang Syne.” GSBG repeated the feat in Albany, which mandolinist Paul Hoffman and dobroist Anders Beck hinted at in an appearance on The JamBase Podcast.

“Jaywalking” led into “New & Improved” to get Greensky’s first set of the tour underway. The latter was one of four songs from Stress Dreams to make the setlist in Albany. “Do Harm” was then followed by “Train Junkie,” a tune penned by Beck and Benny Burle Galloway. Anders talked about how excited he was to play music for the fans and shouted out Stress Dreams before GSBG launched into “Worry For You.” Next came rarity “Bont’s Breakdown,” which was played just one time in 2019 since 2014 as per Phantasy Tour. The five-piece closed the set by pairing “Do It Alone” and “Living Over.”

Greensky went with Stress Dreams single “Monument” to open last night’s second set. Oldies “Beauty And Pain,” “Old Barns” and a “Kerosene” that spanned over 14 minutes followed. GSBG went with live staple “Take Cover” next before Hoffman’s “Against The Days” led into an expansive “Tarpology.” The beloved “Windshield” ended the frame. The quintet then returned to conclude the night with “Until I Sing” off Stress Dreams as the encore.

Earlier in the night, The Infamous Stringdusters treated fans to a 10-song set. The group mixed originals such as “Colorado,” “Sirens” and “Fork In The Road” with covers of The Police’s “Walking On The Moon” and the Grateful Dead’s “Touch Of Grey.” GSBG and The Dusters continue the tour tonight at The Met Philadelphia.
